Famous Yorkshire Ale Supports the Army Benevolent Fund

For over a decade, the Army Benevolent Fund has been supported by award-winning Yorkshire brewery, Timothy Taylor’s, through the sale of its legendary Havercake Ale. Havercake is a very special ale that is only brewed periodically and is eagerly awaited by beer connoisseurs across the Country – often selling out soon after production is announced.

For the last release in late 2023, Timothy Taylor’s once again kindly donated 10p from every pint sold to the ABF, generating an overall total of £2,534.40. To mark the occasion, the Chief Exec of Timothy Taylor’s, Tim Dewey, presented a giant cheque to the Charity’s Regional Director, Lieutenant Colonel Barney Barnbrook, at the Brewery’s historic Knowle Spring site in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

Originally brewed to honour the soldiers of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment, affectionately nicknamed 'Havercake Lads', the name is derived from the oatmeal bread cake that was the staple food of the Yorkshire Pennine towns and villages from where most of the soldiers were recruited.

The Army Benevolent Fund is extremely grateful to Timothy Taylor’s for their enduring support to the Army’s national charity.
