Campaigners from the Lambeth for Europe and Wandsworth and Merton European Movement groups helped to create the new “delicious, light and fresh” drink, which is carefully blended from British and German hops.
The group says the drink’s title - Four Freedoms - is a nod to the European Single Market and its values which include the freedoms of movement of goods, capital, services, and labour.
The drink will be brewed by Brixton’s Clarkshaws Brewery at Loughborough Junction in south London, and will be officially launched next month on the eve of the next major People’s Vote march.
Ben Austin, one of the founders of Four Freedoms, said: “After the fractious referendum campaign, I really felt we needed to do something positive that could cheer us all up and so we thought what better way to do this than making a beer with some close friends?”
He added: “We’re really pleased with the finished product and looking forward to sharing our delicious brew with fellow pro-Europeans”.
The launch event takes place at the Whirled Cinema – a stone’s throw from the brewery – on Friday 19th October 2018.
