2019 Beer Range
03 December 2018
We are excited to release details of the 2019
monthly beer range - The Aviator Series.
There are some really great beers in the
series and we hope you get to try them all.
We would like to introduce you to Roger who
will be our test pilot for all our beer names throughout the year.
You'll see him on all the pump clips as the year progresses, so
here's a bit of backstory on our pilot....
Roger "Mayday" Bickford-Smith 3rd was a
middle-aged man from the home counties who loved his beer and
his local pub.
He loved all things related to aviation,
planes and flight. His fascination came from reading Biggles books
as a child and learning about the heroics of the RAF in WW2,
especially the Battle of Britain.
During the 60's he learnt to fly and as
soon as he could, bought a number of old RAF Spitfires, his
all-time favourite plane. To complete the classic pilot look, he
also bought an authentic flying jacket, flying cap and goggles
making him look rather spiffing.
He tried and failed to join the RAF as a
fighter pilot, truly believing he was the best pilot they never
had. He then became a hapless, try-hard, over-confident member of
his local flying club and as you will see throughout the year,
his un-earned, cocksure attitude gets him into several tricky
Roger and out.
