Blossoms and Robinsons team up for limited edition Charlemagne beer

Blossoms Band from South Manchester

Robinsons Brewery have teamed up with Stockport band Blossoms to create the limited beer Charlemagne.

The 4.1% ABV ale is a ‘full-bodied golden ale with a rich malt and hop character’ that will be sold exclusively at The Blossoms pub on the A6 in Stockport – the pub that inspired the name of the band.

To celebrate the launch of the band’s debut self-titled album, the pub will be offering a free pint to fans who buy either a physical copy or digital copy of the album and can present proof of purchase at the bar on August 5 (conditions apply).

Gill Yates, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery, said: “We are delighted to be working with Blossoms on this very limited edition beer.

“We are a proud Stockport brewer and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the success of a local band than by creating a beer for their fans.”

Blossoms’ rise to the top of the charts has been a national success story over last 18 months with the band racking up numerous accolades including being named in the top five in Radio X’s Great X-Pectations, fourth in BBC Radio’s Sound of New Music 2016 and one of the featured bands in MTV’s Brand New for 2016.

The band even knocked Adele off the top of the iTunes album chart with the release of their ‘At Most A Kiss’ EP earlier this year.

With a recent slot at Glastonbury under their belts and forthcoming appearances at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Blossoms will return to play special homecoming show at Stockport Plaza at midnight on August 5 with doors opening the night before at 10pm.

Blossoms singer Tom Ogden said: “We were really excited when Robinsons told us they wanted to produce a special Blossoms beer to celebrate the album release.

“It’s great to hear that fans will now be able to enjoy a pint of Charlemagne at The Blossoms on August 5th.”

Charlemagne will be available for a very limited time exclusively to The Blossoms Pub from August 5 in cask only.
