Robbies brewery aims to be top of the taps… after creating its second rockstar brew within weeks!
Hot on the heels of its collaborating with Iron Maiden this month, to brew up Trooper Red ‘N’ Black Porter, Stockport’s Robinson’s Brewery has now teamed up with the local band Blossoms, to mark the musicians’ debut album.
The tribute act comes in the form of Charlemagne – a 4.1 per cent, full bodied golden ale with a rich malt and hop character.
It will be sold only at the town’s Blossoms pub – which inspired the band’s name.
To celebrate the launch of the band’s eponymous album, the pub will be offering a free pint to fans who purchase either a physical copy or digital copy of the album and can present proof of purchase at the bar on August 5.
Robbies brand manager Gill Yates said: “We are delighted to be working with Blossoms on this very limited edition beer. We are a proud Stockport brewer and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the success of a local band than by creating a beer for their fans.”
Blossoms’ rise to the top of the charts has been a national success story over last 18 months, with the band racking up numerous accolades including being named in the top 5 in Radio X’s Great X-Pectations, 4th in BBC Radio’s Sound of New Music 2016 and one of the featured bands in MTV’s Brand New for 2016.
They even knocked Adele off the top of the iTunes album chart with the release of their At Most A Kiss EP earlier this year.
With a recent slot at Glastonbury under their belts and forthcoming appearances at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Blossoms will return to play a special homecoming show at Stockport Plaza at midnight on August 5.
Band member Tom Ogden said: “We were really excited when Robinsons told us they wanted to produce a special Blossoms beer to celebrate the album release. It’s great to hear that fans will now be able to enjoy a pint of Charlemagne at The Blossoms!”.
