Joseph Holt is proud to be part of Great Get Together Pale Ale

Get Together Pale Ale

This summer, on 16 – 18 June, the Jo Cox Foundation has joined with hundreds of partners nationwide to organise the biggest neighbourhood celebrations since the Jubilee street parties.

It’s called The Great Get Together and it’s bringing people together with their neighbours to share food and drink and celebrate all that we hold in common.

When an old mate of Brendan Cox, James, who runs a social enterprise beer company The Good Beer Co. said he thought it would be good to have a beer to help people celebrate, Brendan agreed enthusiastically. James then contacted Adnams Brewery and they contacted other breweries and something groundbreaking happened.

Joseph Holt Brewery is proud to be part of a new beer, the Great Get Together Pale Ale, an unprecedented collective UK brewing industry effort to raise funds for the Jo Cox Foundation and support the Great Get Together.

In keeping with the ideals of The Great Get Together, Great Get Together Pale Ale is a collective effort.  We’ve teamed up Adnams, Arkells, Cliff Quay, Elgoods, Fullers, Harviestoun, Joules, J W Lees, Marstons, Palmers, St Austell, Theakstons, Thornbridge and Woodfordes, and social enterprise, The Good Beer Co. to create a beer to help people across the UK enjoy their Great Get Togethers with family, friends, colleagues, neighbours and their local community.  

And we’re proud to sell the *beer at our pubs and free-trade licensees:

The profits from the Great Get Together Pale Ale will go to the Jo Cox Foundation. Funds raised will support their work to bring together communities across the UK in the spirit of Jo’s words: “we have far more in common than that which divides us.”
