Charlemagne is a 4.1% ABV full bodied golden ale with a rich malt and hop character that will be sold exclusively at The Blossoms pub in Stockport; the same pub which insipired the name of the band.
To celebrate the launch of the band’s debut self-titled album, the pub will be offering a free pint* to fans who purchase either a physical copy or digital copy of the album and can present proof of purchase at the bar on August 5th 2016.
Gill Yates, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery, said: “We are delighted to be working with Blossoms on this very limited edition beer. We are a proud Stockport brewer and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the success of a local band than by creating a beer for their fans.”
Blossoms’ rise to the top of the charts has been a national success story over last 18 months with the band racking up numerous accolades including being named in the top 5 in Radio X’s Great X-Pectations, 4th in BBC Radio’s Sound of New Music 2016 and one of the featured bands in MTV’s Brand New for 2016. The band even knocked Adele off the top of the iTunes album chart with the release of their ‘At Most A Kiss’ EP earlier this year.
With a recent slot at Glastonbury under their belts and forthcoming appearances at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Blossoms will return to play a special homecoming show at Stockport Plaza at midnight on August 5th (with doors opening at 10pm on August 4th).
Tom Ogden, Blossoms, said: “We were really excited when Robinsons told us they wanted to produce a special Blossoms beer to celebrate the album release. It’s great to hear that fans will now be able to enjoy a pint of Charlemagne at The Blossoms on August 5th!”
Closing, Gill said: “With the band returning to their home town, we can’t think of a better place to enjoy a pint of Charlemagne at the pub which inspired their name.”
Charlemagne will be available for a very limited time exclusively to The Blossoms Pub in Stockport from August 5th in cask only.
