Edith Cavell beer - raise a glass for heroic Nurse

Wolf Brewery has produced a real ale in honour of a WW1 nurse who heroically helped 200 British soldiers to freedom during the Great War, with 10p from the sale of each bottle being donated to Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

Edith Cavell cared for wounded soldiers from both sides of the conflict whilst working in a Belgian hospital and saved the lives of British soldiers, ensuring they reached neutral Holland. However, once the occupying Germans were tipped off they arrested and executed Edith Cavell for treason in 1915.

The Edith Cavell ale has been created to mark the 100th anniversary this year since her death and forms part of the Edith Cavell Centenary Appeal which includes a Gala Fundraising dinner in the magical Globe Theatre on 17th September and a ceremony of remembrance at her statue in Trafalgar Square on 12th October.

The Edith Cavell ale is a hoppy, thirst-quenching beer with a fruity currant finish and is available from Wolf brewery through the Beers of Europe website, click here. Both companies are donating 5p from the sale of each bottle to support the work of Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

Cavell Nurses’ Trust CEO Steve Charlton says “We are really grateful to Wolf Brewery and Beers of Europe for making this wonderful beer available for people to enjoy. It’s a great way to celebrate the memory and legacy of Edith Cavell”.
