Elbow to launch own beer in October

Mancunian indie heroes Elbow are set to launch their own brand of beer at Manchester Food and Drink Festival this October.

The 4.0% ABV ale, named after current album ‘Build A Rocket Boys!’ and brewed to their own specifications, is described as a “golden ale with a rich rounded body, smooth bitterness, subtle tang of malt and fruity aroma.”

The five-piece have played at a number of festivals this year, with appearances also confirmed at Reading and Leeds, Lowlands Festival and Festival Internacional de Benicassim.
