Manchester brewer JW Lees has collaborated with astronomer Dr Brian Cox on Bosmic Brew, a 3.9% ABV amber ale.
The beer is due to go on sale in January to coincide with Brian’s UK and Ireland arena tour.
He said: “Growing up in Oldham, walking distance from the brewery, JW Lees is a name I’ve always known — and its beers are legendary! So, to work with it, to experiment with different beers, to uncover the secrets and science of brewing, and launch Cosmic Brew has been a great experience.
“I also wanted to put something back into Oldham — to collaborate with a successful local industry to make something worthwhile.”
The beer has been brewed with a blend of British Admiral, Jester and Cascade hops.
