New beer for Radio Scilly!

The launch of Radio Scilly is to be celebrated with a new beer — and Islanders and visitors are being asked to come up with a name. Mark Praeger, who owns the Ales of Scilly brewery, is to create a real ale to mark the station’s permanent return after eight years of short-term trial broadcasts.

"Radio Scilly is something unique to the Islands and, like Ales of Scilly, it has grown massively in size and popularity over the years," he said.

"The Radio Scilly team members have been fans of my Scuppered ale for many years and as a big fan of the station, I wanted the brewery to be involved in this big day.”

Ales of Scilly is based close to the station’s new studio at Porthmellon beach.

Managing Director Keri Jones said: "Radio Scilly has a responsibility to promote the best in Island produce. We thought it more appropriate to launch our community project with a toast from Mark's local brew rather than imported champagne. Well, that's what we said in the local paper anyway. In all honesty we've done it because it is an ok PR stunt and I like beer so there's bound to be some product testing involved."

Now Keri and Mark are looking for name for the new beer. "Ideally, the new ale will have a catchy name with references to radio or our islands". Keri said.

The closing date for suggestions is August 15. The winner will receive a 9 pint microcask of the new brew as a prize.
