We are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration beer The Knight's Move brewed in conjunction with Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation (OVMRO) who are a dedicated mountain rescue team operating in Northern Eryri (Snowdonia)
This unique partnership aims to raise awareness of OVMRO's vital work and generate funds for the 100% voluntary-run organisation.
The Knight's Move is a 3.5% Small Pale Ale showcasing vibrant modern hops for notes of citrus-lime and bright tropical fruit ahead of a moreish bitter finish.
Named after a well known move high up the on Grooved Arete rock climb on Tryfan’s renowned East Face (which happens to be opposite the OVMRO base). With each purchase, customers will not only be buying a fantastic, locally brewed beer but also contribute to a worthy cause.
OVMRO, covering over 150 square miles of awe-inspiring Eryri terrain, provides essential rescue services to those in need. Their selfless efforts in challenging environments have saved countless lives and touched the hearts of the local community and beyond. By joining forces with Wild Horse Brewing Co, the collaboration aims to shine a light on OVMRO's invaluable contributions while raising vital funds to support their ongoing operations.
Chris Lloyd, Chairman of OVMRO says "The collaboration between Wild Horse Brewing Co and Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue gives an ideal opportunity to promote this charity and its volunteers who provide a search and rescue service on the mountains and rivers of Northern Snowdonia (Eryri) 24/7. Being one of the busiest Mountain Rescue Teams in the UK, publicity such as this and a contribution from sales of Knight's Move assist with running costs and further development."
For every pint or can of "The Knight's Move" Pale Ale bought, you will be donating 20p to OVMRO. These funds will go directly towards providing the necessary equipment, training, and resources required to execute lifesaving missions in one of the most picturesque yet perilous landscapes in the United Kingdom. The can label also features a QR code that links to OVMRO’s donation page should customers wish to donate more. You can also DONATE HERE
Chris Holyfield, Wild Horse Head of Sales, says, “Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation have been our chosen charity from day one. Their invaluable work in the mountains and valleys of the Glyderau, Carneddau and Northern Eryri means they cross paths with the wild Carneddau ponies we are named after. We are indebted to the time their members give up to keep us and visitors safe whilst out enjoying the world class outdoor pursuits we are so lucky to have here in North Wales. This beer is an opportunity to highlight the fact they are 100% voluntary and remind people to enjoy the outdoors responsibly."
The Knight's Move is available now at the brewery, on the webshop and at select, local retailers.
