New Order's Stray Dog Beer

The band have named the beverage after a track on their Music Complete album.

New Order have announced they are releasing a new beer.

The Blue Monday five-piece have teamed up with Moorhouse's Brewery of Burnley to launch the Stray Dog, which is named after the sixth track on their recent Music Complete Album.

Listen to New Order's Stray Dog below:

That's all well and good, but what does it taste like?

Well, according to their press release, the premium 4.2% beer is "a refreshing and clean tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness." 


New Order commented: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they're celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west”

The beer will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs from August Bank Holiday weekend, ahead of national availability in September. 

It will also be launched officially at a special New Order-themed night at The Sawyer’s Arms in Manchester on Sunday 28 August from 7pm.
