The weather’s on the up, the clocks have gone forward, and our thoughts are turning to summer evenings out in pub gardens so here are 8 great ales raising funds for a range of charities and causes, from big brewers and national charities to small craft breweries and local causes. Now, who’s buying the next round?

BrewDog made the news recently with its Pink IPA, bottled for this year’s International Women’s Day. The beer was its flagship beer Punk IPA, repackaged with a new name and pink label, and sold for a 20% cheaper price to anyone identifying as a woman. For four weeks, BrewDog also donated 20% of proceeds from Pink IPA and Punk IPA – the gender pay gap in the UK – to two charities that support women and fight inequality: 9to5 and Women’s Engineering Society.
