EY UP! There’s a lot of Yorkshire ‘Madness’ on its way.

Madness Brewing joins forces with The Great Yorkshire Brewery in Cropton.

The legendary Madness formed in 1976 and created their own ‘Madness Brewing Company’ in 2014. Now Chrissy Boy, Monsieur Barso, El Thommo, Suggs, Woody and Bedders have joined forces with the award winning Great Yorkshire Brewery in Cropton.

The Great Yorkshire Brewery are brewing three beers; ‘Lovestruck’ is a hoppy Amber Ale filled with a floral & berry hop character that tickles the nose, followed by coffee and hazelnut aromas.

‘Nightboat’ comes from the hit ‘Nightboat to Cairo’ from the 1979 debut album One Step Beyond, a rich and velvety London porter packed to the rafters with cappuccino, chocolate and dark fruit aromas. It’s a beer with a taste for adventure!

The Great Yorkshire Brewery have taken a personal fancy to the latest work of art, Madness ‘Absolutely Pale Ale’. The name is taken from their second album which reached number 2 in the charts in 1980. The Madness ‘Absolutely Pale Ale’ really is top of the hops! The ‘Pale Ale’ is a fabulously fun blonde with a hoppy bouquet and fruitful high notes.

Madness have made regular trips to Cropton, situated in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park so they can work closely with the Brewer’s and Directors at The Great Yorkshire Brewery to perfect the recipes.

Joanne Taylor one of The Great Yorkshire Brewery’s Director’s said: “It is a great opportunity to work alongside one of the biggest bands of the 80’s. The lads are a pleasure to work with and to be around the brewery. They bring along to Cropton an immense wave of happiness and fun to the brewery. There is a lot of ‘Madness’ to come, watch this space!”
