A Scottish hospitality group has created a one-of-a-kind pint to be poured in its bars – with all profits made going to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Inspired by the Scottish rugby legend, ‘Doddie Beir’ will be served at Signature Group venues in Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews throughout the Guinness Six Nations to raise funds for ‘My Name’5 Doddie Foundation’.
The brand-new beer will be sold in 15 venues across Scotland including The Queens Arms, Cold Town House, Edinburgh and The Raven, The Smokin Fox, Glasgow throughout the Guinness Six Nations from Monday 27th January until end of March. All profits will go to the Foundation.
Doddie said: “We are delighted to have the support of Nic and the team at the Signature Group and I very much enjoyed working with Ed to create the Doddie Beir. Fortunately I have plenty of experience of tasting beer so I knew exactly what I like !"
"I hope fans enjoy a pint or two of Doddie Beir through the Six Nations while watching the rugby and hopefully witnessing some Scotland success!”
Nic Wood, Owner of Signature Group, said: “We have enjoyed many months perfecting Doddie’s craft lager – he spent some time at Cold Town Brewery with our brewer Ed Evans to create his ideal pint.
“We are all huge supporters of his work to raise awareness of MND and his devotion to finding new ways of slowing down or curing the disease."
“We hope that, if you are a rugby fan or not, you’ll come along to try Doddie Beir throughout the Six Nations. If you like our original Cold Town, you’ll love this.”
