World-renowned artist Phlegm and local brewery True North Brew Co have teamed up to create a brand new stout.
This exciting collaboration has been announced in celebration of Phlegm’s eagerly anticipated new exhibition ‘Mausoleum of the Giants’. The 6% stout is appropriately named Giants; seven malts combine creating an initial sweetness from the oats and wheat, which is quickly followed by dark chocolate and toffee, with hints of caramel and black coffee being balanced with a lasting bitterness from the Slovenian hops. This giant of a stout will be available to try in selected True North venues from 15 March.
True North Brew Co head brewer Dean Hollingworth said: “We are proud to be a local brewery, based in Sheffield city centre, so to be able to collaborate with artist Phlegm to produce a brand new stout is a fantastic opportunity to truly showcase the talent Sheffield has to offer.”
Phlegm also joined Dean in the brewery and discussed their take on the collaboration; “I was lucky enough to get a whistle stop tour of Dean’s brewing empire! A lot of time goes into just one brew, I’ll be drinking the humble pint with a whole new appreciation. It’s been a pleasure creating Giants with True North to coincide with Mausoleum of the Giants, a perfect opportunity to support local business and produce.”
As part of the Phlegm x True North collaboration, his Giants design will be featured across four beer mats to make a single image. These are available to collect in selected True North venues meaning you can get your hands on your very own Phlegm design. As an added extra, the first person to collect all four beer mats and bring them to The Devonshire can claim a free pint of Giants stout!
Phlegm himself will also be signing and doing a unique drawing on one set of the beer mats which will be framed and up for auction, with all the proceeds going to Sheffield Lord Mayor’s charity. Follow True North Brew Co on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to look out for the chance to bid.
Phlegm enthusiasts will be able to recognise the collaboration in True North venues by the pump badge which adorns Phlegm’s distinguishable design. Giants stout will be available in the following venues: The Devonshire, Riverside Kelham, Waggon & Horses, The Broadfield, The York.
Phlegm’s exhibition will take place from 15 March – 6 April, at Eye Witness Works, Milton Street, S3 7WJ. Follow the hashtag #phlegmgiants to keep up-to-date.
