It’s Friday afternoon, the sun is shining and we’ve got one very special guest ale to tell you about for Bracknell Ale & Wine Festival 2014 that you won’t find on the programme.
Our friends over at Red Squirrel Brewery have helped source for us a special ale by Winchester born singer Frank Turner, which was brewed in collaboration with Signature Brew.
Signature produce their beers in collaboration with famous singers and bands, and have worked with the likes of The Rifles, Professor Green and Enter Shikari from their brewery in East London.
‘Believe’ is the beers name, and is a 4.8% wheat beer that we’ve tried and loved. The beer will be available bottled and is first come first served due to limited availability.
Here’s what the Signature Brew website has to say about Stakes:
Believe our Frank Turner collaboration brew is a modern twist on the traditional wheat beer encompassing citrus and orange flavours to create a refreshing brew. Designed to accompany long afternoons, this clear 4.8% Wheat Beer has a crispness that will refresh and subtleties to engage the palate
Here’s what Frank said about the beer:
Being asked to design a beer was a new one for me – I don’t know masses about beer, other than that I like drinking it a whole lot. In the end I learned a lot, had a fun evening getting hammered, and ended up with a beer with my name on the label, which is pretty much the pinnacle of any road-dog’s ambitions.
And here is him in action at Reading Festival (possibly not safe for work):
