Some might say we hibernate ourselves during the colder months – cosying up with a beer on your sofa whilst it’s chilly and pouring it down outside. We feel you – we’re IN.
Camden Town Brewery’s Hells in Hibernation Lager celebrates just that – a wintery take on their classic Hells Lager. Hazy, unfiltered and brewed with Apollo and Chinook hops that give it it’s piney freshness, and citrus bitterness – a cosy woodland hibernation in beer form.
But, it just so turns out that those animals we’re taking the hibernation inspiration from are finding it harder and harder to hibernate each winter. That’s why Camden Town Brewery teamed up with the British Hegdehog Preservation Society to raise awareness of how we can help hedgehogs hibernate amongst the changes in their environment, affected by temperature and urban disturbance to their habitats.
So, Camden Town Brewery are donating a portion of proceeds from cans of Hibernation Hells Lager sold to the charity, as well as launching this little boozer…
This might look like your local, but this hog-sized-hut provides a safe place for the wildlife in your garden to hibernate in winter, and birth baby hogs in the summer – and you can get one for your garden too!
The Brewery launched the beer where 100% of proceeds from every sale will be donated to support the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the great work they do, which soon sold out..
Thanks to everyone who bought one – the proceeds will be going towards helping the BHPS support little hedgehogs in need. Your huts are made to order, and will be dispatched over the next 4 weeks.
Please note – these hedgehogs were photographed at a rescue centre, and cared for by a trained specialist, which is why they were awake in daylight.
