Jonathan Hughes (pictured) from the Great Orme microbrewery will be giving the money it has saved from its recent tax cuts to charity that will help children with drinking problems. He will donate every single penny from the recent tax cut to the National Association of Children of Alcoholics (Nacoa). Johnathan also pleaded with other brewers to follow his lead.

“My plan is that rather than pocketing that 1p duty reduction, we donate it to Nacoa,” said Mr Hughes, whose brewery is based at Glan Conwy.

“I would call on other alcohol producers – big and small – to look at practical ways they can help reduce the effects of alcohol abuse on society.

Although his contribution will only be a slight one, its nice to see a brewer taking a positive stance against alcoholism.

“British beer making is in a renaissance, with more small producers offering a wealth of amazing real ales and true regional diversity.

“However, I do believe that if we, as a sector, are to be socially responsible then we must acknowledge the potential negative aspects of alcohol and take steps to address it.”
