Taking Stock: Hop onto accountancy firm’s ale competition

TS ASSURE you, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill Hop-Ed – it concerns something of extreme importance. Ale.

We all love a pint of the brown stuff after a hard day’s work, so Top 50 firm Duncan & Toplis are inviting creative beer drinkers to come up with a name for their signature ale.

The Lincolnshire-based firm describe their tipple as “a classic, English tawny pale ale, brewed with pale, chocolate, crystal and wheat malts, blended with spicy Challenger and Styrian Golding hops”. So not your typical ale you can get down the Red Lion then.

The winner will see their name being used on specially-designed labels for the beer, and will also receive a Sony portable wireless speaker.

The last special beer bottled for Duncan & Toplis was dubbed ‘Capital Grains’ in 2013 by competition winner Annie Taylor from Evesham, but TS is hoping to inspire someone to take this year’s crown with an extra special name.

There are a load of names to choose from, but so far our favourite comes from Twitter user @Jimbobarelli, pictured below.

Entry to the competition is open until 27 April and entries should be sent to hannah.clark@duntop.co.uk, providing name and contact details.
