Nottingham Beer fund helps new ear centre

Angry birdNottingham’s Magpie Brewery has produced a new beer which will see some of the proceeds go towards a city ear charity.


The beer called ‘Angry Bird’ has been produced to raise money for the hearing loss charity, The Ear Foundation.  For every pint sold 5 pence will be donated straight to the charity.

The idea to brew their own beer came after the Nottingham South MP nominated one of Magpie’s beers to appear in the Strangers bar in the House of Commons last year.

The brew was launched earlier this month with the help of local MP Lillian Greenwood and Councillor Alex Ball.



Magpie Brewery has a local focus, uses green energy and re-uses their bottles. The new brew Angry Bird a ruby red ale and has plenty of British hop character to balance the malty base, coming in at 4%.

The Ear foundation are hopeful that some of the proceeds will contribute towards it’s new £700,000 building – the Sound Space. It will be built on the current Sherwin Road site, in Lenton. The Ear Foundation says,

“The Sound Space will help expand the charity’s services for deaf children, adults and their families.”



The building will feature a custom-built group therapy room, two sound-treated rehabilitation rooms and a technology suite with all the latest assisted listening devices.

There will also be an information lab to help people access the latest information and technology in a comfortable, friendly space.
