Clevedon Pier has teamed up with a local brewer to create a special beer to celebrate its 150th birthday and raise funds for its future.

The Victorian pier and Twisted Oak Brewery, which is based in Wrington in North Somerset, have produced Pier Bier.

For every bottle of Pier Bier sold, 0.05p will go towards the maintenance of Britain’s only Grade I-listed seaside pier.

Similarly 0.05p will be donated for every pint bought on draught.

Keith Hayles, head brewer at Twisted Oak, said: “We’re extremely honoured to be brewing Pier Bier, specially for the pier’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

“It’s a deliciously drinkable, pale ale made entirely with English hops – perfect for the summer.”

Pier Bier is available in bottles from:

  • Twisted Oak’s micro pub, The Fallen Tree, on Hill Road, Clevedon
  • Tiffin on the Pier
  • Tiffin cafe at Bullock’s Farm in Kingston Seymour
  • The Cellar in Clevedon
  • The Curzon Cinema in Clevedon
  • The Theatre Shop in Clevedon
  • The Cork & Fork in Yatton
  • Tout Budgens in Langford
  • Brockley Farm Stores near Cleeve

It will also be available on draught from The Fallen Tree throughout the summer.

Phil Curme, Clevedon Pier Trust’s chairman said: “We are chuffed to bits in having our very own specially brewed beer from Twisted Oak.

“Our friends at the Fallen Tree micropub in Hill Road are active supporters of the trust and we are delighted to have found a way of deepening this local connection for the benefit of all.

“It’s a unique beer for a unique pier – I would recommend both!”
