Iconic band Elbow launch beer in Nicholson's

Iconic band Elbow launch beer in Nicholson's

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 Marston's 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 a refreshing golden pale ale, with a session-friendly ABV of 4.2%, created by Elbow in collaboration with Marston's, and you can try it first exclusively in Nicholson's pubs across the UK from 4th February 2014.

The band are also planning a series of exclusive pub playback events for fans to listen to the new album and taste the beer in February and early March. Sign up to be a friend of Nicholson's to be the first to hear about the exclusive playback of Elbow's latest album.
