Milntown’s special brew


A COMMEMORATIVE beer has been launched by the Borderlands Brewery in support of the Langholm’s 150-year-old rugby club.

Founded in 1871, Langholm RFC is the oldest Rugby Club in the Scottish Borders and to celebrate the local brewery will produce 1,871 limited edition numbered bottles of pale ale.

Each bottle will cost £3, with £1 of that going directly to the club.

Its founder Stuart Campbell said he wanted to give back to a club that had meant so much to the community.

“So many people are involved or have been involved in the club and it means so much to everyone that it is recognised and supported,” he said.

“My three boys have played for Langholm at some point or another on different levels and I wanted to show my appreciation of what they have done over the 150 years.”

The beer is a special pale ale brewed with Columbus, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops to create what Stuart described as a ‘light and thirst quenching’ beverage.

“This is a very special beer for a very special club,” added Stuart.

“I’m thrilled we have been able to do it and thank the club for their illustrious history.”

Langholm RFC’s chairman Kenneth Pool said: “The club is delighted that Borderlands Brewery has produced a beer to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the club and we are sure it will be another great tasting beer from the brewery.”

The first 700-plus batch will be available tomorrow to the lucky few who have already requested one, with the brewery open for people to drop-by and purchase between 4pm and 6pm tomorrow and 10am-1pm Saturday.

More batches will follow until the 1,871 bottles are sold, with a second scheduled for November.
