A new beer, created to raise funds to protect one of the West Midlands rarest butterflies, is being launched in pubs across the region.
Wood’s Brewery have produced Wood White a cloudy, Belgian white beer to support the butterfly of the same name, which has declined by 88% in the UK since the 1970s. The Wood White butterfly can be found at just 50 sites across the country, with nearly half of these in the West Midlands and sales from the new beer will help fund future conservation work for the species across the region.
Co-owner at Wood’s Stephen O’Neill said, “We are proud to be part of such an important local conservation project. Preserving our region’s environment and working with our local community is integral to what we stand for.”
