Spcially beer brewed to celebrate the return of the English National Sheep Dog Trials to North Devon.

A BIDEFORD brewery has produced a special beer to celebrate the return of the English National Sheep Dog Trials to Filleigh’s Castle Hill Estate.

The Big Sheep Brewery, which is co-sponsoring the trials, has launched ‘That’ll Do!’ ahead of the event taking place on the weekend of, July 19-21.

Former shepherd-turned Big Sheep director Rick Turner, said: “It is incredibly exciting to have the very best shepherds and shepherdesses with their faithful collie dogs coming to North Devon for the climax of the sheepdog trialling calendar again this year.

“‘That’ll do!’ is the command given to a sheepdog at the end of their work; time now for the shepherd to give the dog a drink of water while he or she can settle down with an award winning bottle of beer which can be purchased from event sponsors, Mole Valley Farmers.”
