A BEER sold at a famous Black Country pub has brewed up £800 for the Mayor of Dudley's charities.
The Old Swan in Netherton, known locally as Ma Pardoe's, raised the money for the Mayor of Dudley's charities after the pub sold its first ever brew of charity beer, Golden Chains.
The golden beer was on sale last autumn and bosses at the popular pub in Halesowen Road, Netherton, are now planning to brew up a second batch of the popular ale.
Tim Newey, landlord at The Old Swan, said: "We are only too pleased to support local charities and our regulars certainly enjoyed the Golden Chains ale.
"We will be brewing up some more which will be available in the coming weeks and months and will again be sold for the mayor's charity."
Councillor Alan Finch, Mayor of Dudley, said: "I'm extremely grateful to Tim and the head brewer Paul Cooksey and all the customers at Ma Pardoe's for supporting the charities. I hope people enjoyed Golden Chains and will continue to support the charities by buying the ale when it is back on over the next few months."
The pub brewed 40 nine-gallon barrels of the ale initially to raise the £800 and will look to brew the same again to double the charity total.
The Mayor's charities this year, which are benefiting from the sale of the ale, are White House Cancer Support in Dudley and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
