    In this special episode of Beer Here Now, we explore the subject of mental health.

    Thornbridge Brewery's releasing 'Hope', a beer designed to highlight the issues around mental wellbeing.

    The launch is in between Sui

    cide Prevention Day and World Mental Health Day.

    We hear from the brewery's Chief Exec Simon Webster about how the idea came about and what else Thornbridge is doing to highlight the issue.

    James Creaghan from Derbyshire County Council tells us what they're doing to tackle mental health stigma and what help is available.

    We also hear from Fay Parrish from the brewery about the launch event itself at Sheffield FC on 5 October, and where we can get a pint of Hope.

    £10 from every cask and 50p from every pint sold on World Mental Health Day will be donated to North Derbyshire Samaritans.

    Adam and James report to the brewery to help with brew day... only to find there's a bit of a twist.

    They also get a tour of the 12 acres of stunning gardens which encircle the hall and learn more about its history and current day use.
