Our special Shrewsbury Town v Chelsea draught beer, Blues & Amber – Our Special Mon, goes out to pubs from the brewery starting 21st October.
We’d like to say a big Thanks to everyone who suggested names for the beer. We received an overwhelming response through Twitter, Facebook and particularly the Blue & Amber messageboard, and there were some great ideas.
The name comes from those suggestions – Blues and Amber is a great reference to the two teams’ colours and Our Special Mon refers to our manager, and a clever play on a José Mourinho phrase (no offence, Mr Mourinho!). The winners of the free beer for these suggestions are Richard Dunse and Jane Pittaway, both from Shrewsbury, who will each receive 18 pints.
Many thanks to Matt Ashton at the AMA Sports Photo Agency for his photo of Micky Mellon, and thanks of course to Shrewsbury Town for their enthusiasm about the beer!
The 3.8% pale ale contains amber malts with Challenger, First Golding and Bramling Cross hops. We’ll let you know where to buy it next week.
