New Order, have joined forces with Moorhouse’s Brewery of Burnley, U.K. to launch a new beer, set for release this Autumn.
And now for the Belgian readers, usually better connaisseurs of beers: the premium 4.2% beer, named “Stray Dog” (after a track on the band’s most recent album “Music Complete”), is a golden ale, with hints of citrus fruit and lychee.
The beer was brewed using American Cascade, Centennial and Willamette hops, with English Maris Otter malt. It was developed by head brewer Dan Casaru at Moorhouse’s new brewery after a series of tastings earlier this spring.
The beer will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs from the last week of August, ahead of national UK availability in September. The beer will be launched officially at a special New Order-themed evening at The Sawyer’s Arms in Manchester on Sunday August 28th, from 7pm, with DJs and competitions to win special merchandise.
