Seven popular beers including London Pride have been signed off as kosher by the Manchester Beth Din.

Kosher certification was awarded to seven Fuller’s bottle beers this week after an inspection at the brewer’s Chiswick Lane site.

The seven beers given the green light include bottles of Fuller’s London Pride, Black Cab Stout, ESB, India Pale Ale, London Porter, Organic Honey Dew and Wild River.

Fuller’s managing director Simon Dodd said: “This is great news for any beer lovers who are looking for kosher brands and I’m delighted to be taking our fantastic bottle beers to new markets.”

Israel is one of around 80 countries the brewer currently exports to, but Dodd said the implications of the kosher certification “spread much wider… It will allow a whole new group of customers, particularly in the UK and the US, to enjoy the delicious brews we make at Chiswick”.

The Chiswick site in question has been a brewery since 1654 and the company will shortly be holding a Head Brewer’s Roadshow, showcasing the newly “kosher and parev” beers in the North London area.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
