Drink to Doddie Weir with a Doddie Beir

Cold Town Beer has announced the return of its charity brew, Doddie Beir, in memory of Scottish Rugby legend and motor neurone disease campaigner, the late Doddie Weir.

The ‘clean and refreshing’ pint will be available across selected venues for the duration of the Six Nations Rugby tournament. 

Doddie first collaborated with Cold Town Beer back in 2020 to create the bespoke pint to help raise funds – since its release, Cold Town Beer has channeled over £6500 to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation which supports the lives of those affected with MND. This year, Cold Town Beer will be donating 20p from every pint of Doddie Beir sold. 

Cold Town’s Nic Wood said: “Cold Town Beer is proud to share Doddie Beir with Rugby fans for another year running, with the hopes of donating a minimum of £3000 to Doddie’s foundation and help raise awareness of MND. We will forever hold the Doddie Beir pint close to our hearts ­– it was an honour to have crafted the brew with Doddie Weir and we want his legacy to live on forever in our venues.”

Tasting notes on Doddie’s Beir are that its malty backbone brings citrus, herbaceous and floral flavours, and from now until the end of the Six Nations Rugby, it’ll be pouring in Edinburgh’s The Auld Hundred, Badger & Co, The Basement, The Black Bull, Cold Town House, Element, The Fountain, The Huxley, McLarens on the Corner, The Meadowpark and The Queens Arms; Glasgow’s Church on the Hill The Raven and The Smokin’ Fox; and The Saint in St. Andrews.
