To celebrate a decade since their debut studio album, Courteeners have brewed a special lager with Camden Town Brewery.

The limited-edition beer was originally brewed exclusively for Courteeners’ rider for their sold-out shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall and Manchester MEN. However, having tasted the beer, the band wanted everyone to have the chance to raise a bottle of St Jude Pils.

So, from Wednesday 4th April the beer will be available at a handful of Courteeners’ favourite bars across Manchester including the Black Dog Ballroom, Crazy Pedro’s Cane and Grain and Bay Horse.

Lead singer Liam Fray said: “We were looking for a way to mark the 10 year anniversary of the release of St. Jude and thought it was at least worth raising a beer to celebrate the fact that we’re still here. We’re big fans of Camden and regularly enjoy a Camden Pale Ale so it was great to visit the brewery and get stuck in to create St Jude Pils.”

Brewed by the band and Camden’s brewers in February at the London brewery, St Jude Pils is an unfiltered hoppy lager, with citrus and stone fruit aromas.

Jasper Cuppaidge, Founder of Camden Town Brewery, said, “We’re massive Courteeners fans, so when we found out Courteeners were massive Camden fans, we thought why not get together and make a mega beer? We’ll be celebrating the guys with St. Jude Pils and look forward to fans being able to join us.”
