St Austell Brewery has teamed up with the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership (AONB) to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the Cornwall AONB.

The Cornish AONB covers 958 square kilometres, which is 27 per cent of the county.

As part of the partnership’s diamond anniversary, Jane Davies, development officer for the Cornwall AONB, visited St Austell Brewery's brewing director, Roger Ryman, to brew Natural Beauty, a new beer that will be released under St Austell’s small batch beer club.

Jane said: “This is a wonderful way to celebrate what makes Cornwall’s areas of natural beauty so special.

“The Cornwall AONB isn’t just about the amazing landscape, it’s so much more, such as the Cornish distinctiveness and its heritage.

“Working with Roger at one of Cornwall’s oldest family businesses is a huge treat and we hope people will join us in raising a glass to our sixtieth anniversary celebrating our wonderful landscape.”

Natural Beauty uses all-natural ingredients and is a light mild beer, with a golden colour and rich flavour, made to celebrate the beauty of the coast.

AONB covers 12 separate areas in Cornwall, with ten being on the coastline and two of those in land, Bodmin Moor and the Camel Estuary.

Roger Ryman said: “There are many things which make Cornwall special, but it’s landscape is something unique.

“Whether I’m walking the dog, or rowing, I love being out in the Cornish countryside.

“So, brewing Natural Beauty was something quite personal to me and I’m delighted that the Brewery can be a part of the Cornwall AONB sixtieth anniversary celebrations.”
