Another batch of the beer was brewed to coincide with the Caroline North Convention which took place on the island in September 2008.
Congratulations to John Herdman for designing such a beautiful pump clip. At the time of the original brew he told us that he could remember seeing empty Heineken bottles floating around Ramsey Bay, thrown overboard from
the Caroline ship back in the sixties! John was a big fan of the station. He wrote: “living in Ramsey, Caroline still has resonances in the town. God, how 40 years have flown by. As kids we felt particularly proud
of the fact that the ship was in our bay! Our family moved to the UK in '66 but Caroline was our connection to home. I still remember being in tears when she went off the air.”
Our thanks to the brewery boss, Martin Brunnschweiler, and to John for getting in touch.
... and another to Radio 390
The Kelham Island brewery in Sheffield produces a full range of beers on a regular basis but, in addition, they
make some monthly specials. In November 2011, one of these was called Radio 390. Sadly it was only on sale for that one month and we never got to taste it.
