Origin: Liverpool, England
Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 3.9%

Design: Sir Peter Blake
The Tate Liverpool in partnership with Mad Hatter Brewery released this golden ale back in 2015 to celebrate Sir Peter Blake’s dazzling of the Mersey Ferry.

Blake is one of the UK’s most iconic artists, most recognisable for his album artwork for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club. In 2015 he created this bold, colourful pattern that transformed the boat into a giant, floating burst of colour on Liverpudlian docks. 

Origin: Manchester / Bristol, England
Style: IPA
ABV: 6.7%

Design: Dave Sedgewick & James Yeo
A colloboration between Manchester’s Track and Bristol’s Left Handed Giant craft breweries. Likewise the label is a creation of both their regular label designers / artists - Dave Sedgewick (Track) and James Yeo (LHG). Gentle abstract floatiness to compliment the refreshing zing of this brew. 

Origin: Coventry, England
Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 8.2%

Babalon - aka the Scarlet Woman, Great Mother or Mother of Abominations, was an invention of legendary weirdo Aleister Crowley (“England’s wickedest man”). A stripped down graphic icon of her seal sits front and centre on this sweet, strong imperial stout. 

Origin: La Laguna, Tenerife
Style: Brown Ale
ABV: 5.5%

London brown ale - brewed about 2,000 miles south in tropical Tenerife of all places. It’s decent though - beats that sickly Newcastle Brown Ale crap any day of the week. Digging the grisly shot of Ronnie too, getting a whole third of the label to himself. Nice little primer of the Great Train Robbery too for locals and tourists alike.

Origin:  Cape Town, South Africa / Aberdeen, Scotland
Style: Sour Pale Ale
ABV: 5.5%

A fresh, nautical pattern for this UK-launched brew from South African Devil’s Peak. The logotype is looking a little squashed in there, however it’s all been nicely updated from the more traditional branding used in South Africa. A welcome addition to the contemporary craft ale scene over here.
