Locally-brewed beer is fit for a Mayor

Locally-brewed beer is fit for a Mayor

The Mayor of Kettering is raising funds during his year with a specially-brewed beer.

Called "Worship" the ale has been created by Kettering's Potbelly Brewery and will be available throughout Cllr Craig Skinner's year in office.

The India Pale Ale will be available in shops and pubs across Kettering, as well as being on sale direct from the brewery and beer festivals throughout the year.

Cllr Skinner said: "Potbelly do some amazing beers and it was really hard to choose just one as my featured beer. I went for the IPA as it's a good summery choice with a citrus hoppy taste. I thought that this would be a great way to support a local business while raising cash for my chosen charity, Kettering Mind."

Caroline Johnson from Potbelly Brewery said: "We are really pleased to be able to make this beer for the Mayor of Kettering. It will be available in shops and pubs and also at beer festivals across the year."

In keeping with Potbelly's porcine-theme, the artwork is a light-hearted take on the Mayoralty, featuring a pig wearing the chains of office and traditional Mayor's robes, designed by artist Christian Dezelu.

Worship IPA 4.0% is available from the brewery in Sydney Street which is open for sales weekdays and Friday evenings and the beer costs £3 for a 500ml bottle or £30 for a case of 12. Customers can order online www.potbellybrewery.co.uk or by emailing caroline@potbellybrewery.co.uk or calling 01536 410818.

The beer will also be stocked in Kafe Bloc in Sheep Street, Kettering.
