We’re going to be creating ‘Havoc’ after enlisting the help of Hobsons Brewery to have a special Wrekin Havoc ale on tap, giving drinkers a taste of the real Shropshire.
The unique tie-up between our hotel and Hobsons emphasises the good working relationship we have with our local suppliers, and customers can now feel the benefit of the union with this fantastic new beer.
The actual beer is one of the existing range from Hobsons, but has been specially renamed for us, which is a real honour. It’s a great name for a beer and we are certain our customers will take to it.
The Red Label means it has its own pump clip, and a name unique to the hotel, so it is effectively our very own beer.
Hobsons is based in Cleobury Mortimer and sources all its ingredients locally. It is a proud Shropshire firm serving Shropshire, just like us. We have a tremendous working relationship with them and are pleased to be showcasing this ale.
Artist Toni-Sian Williams designed the pump clip and I am very pleased with the finished article.
Toni also did the illustrations for the book ‘The Wrekin Giant and Wellington Cobbler’, which was written by local author, David Weston.
She said it was an amazing project to work on and great fun – she also said she hopes the design catches the eye of the customers and doesn’t cause too much Havoc in the hotel bar!
As a fan of real ale myself I am delighted with the end result – cheers!
