DEYA x National Star collaboration beer

Cheltenham brewery DEYA has launched a collaboration beer with National Star to support young people with complex disabilities.

Called DEYA x National Star, the proceeds from the 4.5% pale ale will go towards National Star’s £1.5 million public appeal to build a new specialist residence at Ullenwood.

It is the third collaboration between DEYA and National Star. A group of students visited DEYA on brew day and had the opportunity to get some hands-on experience.

The strong relationship between the two organisations through Cheltenham Beer Week has also resulted in a National Star student gaining permanent employment at DEYA following his successful work experience.

‘We are very excited and grateful that DEYA has chosen to support National Star,’ said Catrin Viveash, Head of Fundraising at National Star.

‘As a charity, National Star relies on fundraising to provide resources and facilities that our students use daily.  The profits from this beer will go towards the new specialist residence we are building at Ullenwood.’

A group of students were also involved in the design of the label. ‘This has been a wonderful opportunity for the students to show what they can achieve,’ said Catrin.

DEYA x National Star (4.5%) is big bodied pale ale. Citra Lupomax hops bring sweet citrus and mango and Mosaic BBC and Cryo for ripe, squishy blueberry and a touch of dankness.

National Star provide educational opportunities for young people with complex disabilities and learning difficulties. Work on the £6 million specialist residence started in July. It will provide specially adapted accommodation for young people with disabilities that fully meets their complex needs and provides stimulating spaces to live, learn and relax. It is due to open in September 2023.
