Otter Brewery has raised more than £3,000 for the Royal British Legion (RBL) as part of its annual support for the Poppy Appeal.
The total was reached through the success of Poppy Otter - a specially created beer sold in Westcountry pubs throughout November and December.
An on-site staff collection box also helped boost the total further.
Every time a pint of Poppy Otter was poured, the brewery pledged to donate 5p to charity. A cheque for the £2,800 - the money raised solely from the sale of Poppy Otter - was presented to the RBL’s Devon County chairman Ralph Howard-Williams.
Patrick McCaig, of Otter Brewery, said: “A big thank you once again to all our drinkers, and the boys and girls at Otter, who did their bit in helping us to help the Poppy Appeal carry on their great work. We have proudly supported this charity for the last six years and have a close personal affinity with the values they have.”
Community fundraiser Carol Arnold said: “Otter already do a lot of fundraising for other charities and communities that they care about. But they seem to have pulled out all the stops for us this time.”
