Madness launch Gladness

Another celebrity beer hits the pubs. But this one is actually tasty!!! I met some of the boys from Madness tonight in London. The band name says it all: the boys are nuts. And they launched their new beer, ‘Gladness’ with the kind of madcap humour you’d expect. The Q&A session hosted by Pete Brown started the evening off like a scene out of a Laurel & Hardy movie. The beer is brewed by Growler Brewery in Essex. Gladness is 4.2%, brewed like an ale but with Tettnang & Saaz hops which are traditionally the fave hops of lager producers. I got a subtle blueberry aroma and flavour in the beer, it was also beautifully sweet and ludicrously drinkable. Available now in bottle and cask in all Nicholson’s pubs FROM FRIDAY 14th JUNE. Though it’s at The Walrus & Carpenter at Monument NOW! Check out my video from the night, including Suggs whose voice was dampened by the noisy pub! (I might add subtitles next week!)
