Order now: NIGHTINGALE ale


Reigate Grammar School is delighted to be working with our friends at Pilgrim Brewery to launch our very first charity ale in support of the new Nightingale Fund.

At the end of July, the Foundation team popped into the Pilgrim Brewery, accompanied by the Headmaster – who rolled up his sleeves to help brew a batch of the delicious NIGHTINGALE.

Pilgrim Brewery in Reigate is owned by former RGS pupil Adrian Rothera (’84) and RGS parent Rory Fry-Stone, and has been brewing beer on site since 1982 making it one of the oldest craft breweries in the South East of England. Pilgrim produces a variety of beers but is best known for its flagship ale Progress – a firm favourite in the local area. Pop in to give the NIGHTINGALE a try in their new tasting Tap Room!

About our new charity beer

Made with a mixture of hops from the USA, NZ and Czech Republic, NIGHTINGALE is a vibrant golden ale that is light on the palate and full of flavour. A case (12 x 500ml bottles) could be yours for £35.00. All profits from sales of this delicious ale support the Nightingale Fund.

How to order

You can pre-order cases of NIGHTINGALE golden ale online. We are currently offering free delivery within five miles of RGS – or collection from school. If you live further afield, we will contact you to arrange a suitable delivery method. PLEASE NOTE: The number of cases from this first batch is limited.

Supporting a good cause has never tasted so good!
