JW Lees will release a new series of beers next year that pay homage to some of the greatest bands to have shaped the Manchester and UK music scene.

JW LeesHead brewer, Michael Lees-Jones, said: “We’ve released details today about our 2019 seasonal ales, beers inspired by the music of Manchester. After all, two of Manchester’s greatest exports are music and beer.

“Our 2018 range was inspired by the pioneers and innovators of Manchester. This was a huge success, so we looked back to Manchester for new inspiration in 2019.

“We’ve enjoyed experimenting with more hops through our microbrewery, and we’ll be showcasing some of these new combinations.

We’re using tried and tested hops and malts plus some new ones — it’s going to be another push forward in interesting and exciting beer.”
