BREWGOODER, the social enterprise which directs its profits to fund clean water projects in Africa, has expanded its product range with beers made by two Scottish craft breweries.

The firm, whose goal is to deliver clean water to more than one million people in developing countries, has teamed up with Drygate in Glasgow and Dalkeith’s Cross Borders Brewing Company to introduce a limited run of pale ales from the west and east coasts of Scotland.

Brewgooder, led by social entrepreneur Alan Mahon, said proceeds from the Gates of the West and Beast from the East will used by its charity, The Brewgooder Foundation, to rehabilitate two water pumps in rural Malawi. The pumps were damaged during a recent hurricane, which Brewgooder said has led members of the community to draw water from unsafe sources. Repairing the pumps will restore access to clean water to more than 1,000 people, it added.

Mr Mahon, who established Brewgooder with Social Bite founder Josh Littlejohn in 2016, said: “We’ve always believed that craft beer has the power to unite people, even across huge distances, and our work has always connected us with new communities and new ways of thinking. The teams at Drygate and Cross Borders both share this vision and believe in the power of craft beer to drive positive social change – so we jumped at the chance to work with them on a collaboration of this kind”.

Brewgooder, whose core Clean Water Lager is produced by BrewDog, said Drygate and Cross Borders are each aiming to raise £1,500 from sales proceeds and donations, which consumers can make via QR codes on beers mats in participating stockists. Mr Mahon said: “It’s been really exciting to work on new brews that will complement the work our Clean Water Lager already supports.”
