Beer

Yes, beer! Copmanthorpe Community Pool has its very own charity beer – ‘Sink or Swim’ ale – a 4.0% abv blonde session ale kindly brewed for us by Ainsty Ales. Every sale of the beer raises money to help us reopen Copmanthorpe School swimming pool as a facility for the whole community.

Looking After Your Beer

  • Each mini-keg will have a small amount of yeast in so, leave them to settle for three hours before opening. (Opening instructions are printed on the label.)
  • Mini-kegs should be kept cool – refrigerated if possible.
  • Refrigerated mini-kegs will keep the beer fresh for three weeks after collection.
  • Drink the beer within three days of opening a mini-keg to enjoy it at its best.
