BREW YORK LAUNCHES INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION BIRTHDAY SERIES
To mark our seventh birthday this April we have brewed collaboration beers with five leading international craft breweries.
The beers will be released at our Seventh Birthday Brewery Bash on 21st and 22nd April, and will be on general sale week commencing 24th April. The series is themed with a nod to the upcoming UK-based Eurovision Song Contest and is named ‘Collabovision’.
With a range of styles featured, the beers are designed to be the perfect Eurovision Watch Party accompaniment.
The five beers in the series are:
- GIVE THAT WOLF A CHERRY – a 12% Cherry, Cacao, Tonka and Vanilla Imperial Milk Stout brewed with Lervig, Norway
- ADRENALINA – 7% Rhubarb, Orange, Vanilla, Ginger, Cinnamon pastry sour brewed with Hidden Springs, Florida US
- FERNANDO & FILIPPO – 8% Almond, Chocolate and Tonka Imperial White Stout brewed with Moersleutel, Netherlands
- COLOUR OF YOUR LIFE – 6% Guava, Banana and Passion Fruit Pastry Sour brewed with Funky Fluid, Poland
- GHOST – 7.2% Azacca, Harlequin and Huell Melon IPA brewed with Blech Brut, Germany
The names of the beers and the characters featured on each design relate to a previous Eurovision performance and link to the place where the collaboration breweries are based.
Here’s some more details on those (look away now if you’d rather guess first!):
GIVE THAT WOLF A CHERRY is a slight twist on Give That Wolf A Banana, a song by British-Norwegian pop duo Subwoolfer that represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. One of the members of Subwoolfer is British singer-songwriter Ben Adams of A1 fame.
FERNANDO & FILIPPO was performed by Dutch singer, MIlly Scott at the Eurovision Song Contest 1966. Milly Scott was the first black singer to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest.
COLOUR OF YOUR LIFE is a song performed by Michał Szpak which came 8th for Poland in 2016. Michał went on to become a coach on The Voice Poland after this and released his second album.
GHOST is a song performed by German singer Jamie-Lee Kriewitz which represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. It was also performed as Kriewitz’s winner’s single during season five of The Voice of Germany.
ADRENALINA is something of a curveball in the series. Obviously America isn’t part of the Eurovision Song Contest. Adrenalina is a song by Italian singer Senhit which represented San Marino in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Fun fact – Flo Rida (from Florida!) joined Senhit on stage in the semi finals performance and a new revamped version of Adrenalina featuring credited vocals from Flo Rida was released on 12 March 2021.
