Collab becoming a ritual

Three years ago, enduring rock band Tygers of Pan Tang released Tyger Blood a specially-commissioned beer, in collaboration with Newcastle-based Box Social Brewing. At the end of this month the five-strong group, formed in Whitley Bay in 1978 and possibly more popular than ever across Europe and the Americas, is heading a similar project – this time with Brinkburn St Brewery.

“It will coincide with the release of their latest album,” says Brinkburn St owner Lee Renforth. “Both the album and the beer are called Ritual and the can will carry an image of the cover. It’s a US West Coast Pale at 4.8% abv and will be launched at the end of October.”

The Tygers’ album will released at the end of November and will headline the Nordic Noise Festival on Saturday November 23, which is coming to Newcastle (Think Tank?, Times Square) for the first time.
