Prost! New Order Launch Stray Dog Beer

stray dog beer new order

Iconic Manchester group New Order have partnered with Moorhouse’s Brewery of Burnle, U.K. to launch their own premium beer this fall. Developed by head brewer Dan Casaru and named after a cut on their most recent Music Complete full-length, Stray Dog “is a refreshing and clean tasting golden ale, with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness.” If you’re eager to taste the band’s suds, well, you’ll have to travel to the UK. The beer will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs during the last week of August, ahead of national UK availability in September. A bottled 500ml version will also be made available for supermarkets and export to follow. Stray Dog will be launched officially at a special New Order-themed evening at The Sawyer’s Arms in Manchester on August 28.

Obligatory press release gush from New Order about the premium 4.2% beer: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they’re celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west.”
