For 2016 we’ll be naming all our beers after de Havilland Aircraft. For those who do not know know of de Havilland, they were responsible for producing some of the most iconic planes of all time. From one of the key aircraft of WWII, the Mosquito, to the sleek polished aluminium Comet, the world’s first turbojet airliner.
The de Havilland Aircraft Museum, located in London Colney, Herts, a few miles from the companies old Hatfield base, is the only aircraft museum dedicated to a single manufacturer. It’s collection features a wide range of historically significant planes including a restored prototype of the mosquito, which celebrated its 75th anniversary in November 2015.
The museum is currently working running a series of funding campaigns to build a new hanger to house some of the aircraft that are sitting outside, exposed to the elements. To help with the fundraising activity we are running a very unique competition.
Anyone who makes a single purchase of a de Havilland themed monthly special (minimum 2 litres) can enter a prize draw. Every month we’ll randomly select on lucky individual, who, along with a guest wins a tour evening at Tring Brewery and the de Havilland Aircraft Museum in the company of all the other monthly winners. BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE. All the tour winners will have their names dropped into a hat, possibly even a flying helmet and one final draw will take place to win a bi-plane flight.
In addition to all this greatness we’ll be making a donation to the museum every month. The monthly prize draw winner will have their name etched onto a donators plaque along side that of the brewery.
