Cheers to that – Elbow to release a brand new beer called Charge

Elbow have announced that fans will soon be supping on their second official beer, called ‘Charge’. 

The Mercury-winning Mancunians’ eponymous debut beer has proved a hit with fans and beer-drinkers alike, so now they’ve brewed a brand new beverage named after a track on their upcoming sixth album, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything.

“With the help of the good people at Marstons we’ve created a beer with a spicy American feel that still retains the class of a traditional British real ale,” said frontman Guy Garvey. “It’s the perfect accompaniment to the album.”

Charge is described as ‘a refreshing golden pale ale, with a session-friendly ABV of 4.2%, created by elbow in collaboration with Marston’s at the spiritual home of British brewing, Burton-Upon-Trent’. It will be exclusively available in Nicholson’s pubs across the UK from 4 February 2014 and then on wider release through Marston’s pubs and across the UK from March.
