Local Brewers Create new ale for Shrewsbury Town cup clash (27th October 2014)

Local Brewers Create new ale for Shrewsbury Town cup clash

Wood's Brewery, which is based in Craven Arms, has launched Blues & Amber - a light special brew that will be on sale in various pubs throughout the county.

Edward Wood, managing director of Wood’s, said he wanted to mark the occasion with a new drink and decided to let fans name the brew after running a competition on Facebook and the Blue and Amber message board.

Edward said: “We wanted to come up with a special brew for the Chelsea game . We thought we’d let the fans name it and we had a brilliant response. Richie Dunse, from Harlescott, came up with ‘Blues & Amber’ while Jane Pittaway, from Meole Brace, came up with a strapline of ‘Our Special Mon’ – a play on José Mourhino’s phrase The Special One.
