A special Shrewsbury Town v Chelsea draught beer, Blues & Amber – Our Special Mon, goes out to pubs on from our brewery next week.
The 3.8% pale ale contains amber malts with Challenger, First Golding and Bramling Cross hops.
The beer was named by Shrewsbury Town fans and we’d like to say a big Thanks to everyone who suggested names. We received an overwhelming response through Twitter, Facebook and particularly Town’s Blue & Amber messageboard, and there were some great ideas. Richard Dunse and Jane Pittaway came up with the winners and receive some free Blues & Amber – Our Special Mon as a reward for their efforts. Blues and Amber is a great reference to the two teams’ colours and Our Special Mon is about our manager, and a play on a José Mourinho phrase (no offence, Mr Mourinho!).
Big thanks too to Matt Ashton at the AMA Sports Photo Agency for his photo of Micky Mellon, and to Shrewsbury Town for their enthusiasm about the beer! Let’s hope the Town record a famous victory.
