pit-ponyThe pit pony would have been used to pull the tubs of coal along with any supplies that were needed. At it’s peak in 1913 there were 70,000 ponies working underground in Britain. They would be stabled underground with a typical eight hour shift. The pit pony would only come to the surface on the colliery’s annual holiday and this beer is named in memory of the contribution that the pit ponies made to the mining industry.
