The limited edition beer is inspired by the brewery’s popular bitters so it is expected to be a real hit with drinkers.

It will be initially on sale at the brewery’s on-site pub, The New Inn, from mid-July before being made more widely available in shops, online, and at the railway.

For every bottle of We’ll Steam Again sold, 10p will be donated to the NYMR charitable trust and for every crate of 12 bottles sold, £2 will go to the much-loved heritage railway.

Antony Towle, marketing manager at Cropton Brewery, said: “Just like everyone in Yorkshire and beyond, we absolutely love the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and were devastated to hear about its huge loss of income as a result of the current pandemic.

“As such an important part of Yorkshire’s history we’re excited to collaborate with the railway to launch We’ll Steam Again and we have a feeling that this special charity brew will be really popular.”

Chris Price, General Manager of NYMR said: “Cropton Brewery has such incredible community spirit, much-needed at a time like this, and we’re so excited to launch and try a pint (or two) of We’ll Steam Again.”
