Two small independent local businesses have joined forces with the New Brewery Arts to sponsor one of the large festival hares. The hare, yet to be given a name, is part of the 2017 Cotswold Hare Trail, seemingly a natural extension of the original Cirencester Hare Festival.
This inevitable spread of model hares throughout the Cotswolds is the latest brainchild from the award winning Hare Festival’s founder and director, Florence Beetlestone, who launched the first in Cirencester in early 2014, three years ago.
The New Brewery Arts, Corinium Ales and Geoffrey Carr Garden Design decided to jointly sponsor one of the hares because of the common theme of hops that’s shared by both brewing and horticulture.
Stephanie’s beautiful hand painted illustrations depict the heritage of New Brewery Arts, the paraphernalia of brewing and the use of horticulture in the ale brewing business.
All-in-all a perfect combination of businesses to be represented together in a partnership whose ethos, quality and values reflect those of the much loved Cotswolds Hare Trail.
