Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon (right) and Wood Brewery MD Edward Wood (second left) presented two Shrewsbury fans, Jane Pittaway from Meole Brace (left) and Richie Dunse from Harlescott (second right), with free beer prizes for their suggestions in naming a special Shrewsbury v Chelsea beer ahead of the Capital One Cup game on 28 October.
The beer, on release to selected pubs around Shrewsbury and adjoining areas, is called ‘Blues & Amber’ (Richie’s suggestion), with a strap line of ‘Our Special Mon’ (Jane’s), a play on José Mourhino’s phrase The Special One.
Said Edward: “We had a fantastic response via social media and especially to the Blue and Amber message board to naming the beer, so very well done to Jane and Richie. We’d also like to thank Shrewsbury Town for their enthusiasm on the project and in particular to Micky for helping with the presentation. We’re all Town fans at the brewery so we’re hoping for a great match and obviously a win!”
