The Finals Countdown

Did you know we have our own beer?

Thanks to Lincoln Green Brewery the band has brewed its own beer.

As part of the process, band members Rich Walker, Richard Bond and Ian McCormack dutifully (there were no shortage of volunteers by all accounts) swapped their instruments for the day and became Apprentice Brewers. Working alongside the Head Brewer, the Thoresby 'Brewmeisters' brewed a pale, hoppy refreshing ale at 4.2%.

Keep your eyes peeled and make sure you try it. For every pint sold 10p will be donated towards the band going to the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2016.
