Love kraft beer? Welsh group Super Furry Animals are planning to unveil something 4 the weekend, a new branded beer called Fuzzy. A good way to pass the time, Fuzzy has been described as a ‘psychedelic wild Welsh beer.’ The beer, which is 8.5% ABV, may result in fuzzy logic, furryvision, and the bad behaviour of its consumers, and, perhaps, visions of hometown unicorns and northern lites.
The band have turned to Celt Experience Brewery to help create their new quaff, which was named after their 1996 debut, Fuzzy Logic. The beer will debut at the Fire Festival on February 1 at the Pontygwindy Estate in Caerphilly. This one-day event will feature members of the band on dj duty.
But, if you can’t make it to the festival, it’s not the end of the world(?). After the band put the finishing touches on their creation, it will be available in pubs around Wales and chosen outlets in London in March. Fuzzy will surely be the gift that keeps giving.
SFA will be one of the newest groups to collaborate on an alcoholic beverage. Goldie Lookin’ Ale, a joint effort between Welsh rappers Goldie Lookin’ Chain and the Newport-based Tiny Rebel Brewery, was introduced last year. The NME reports that Maximo Park has brewed their own signature beer, as well. Their ale, Maxïmo No. 5, was made in conjunction with Newcastle’s Mordue Brewery in celebration of the release of their fifth album, ‘Too Much Information.’ Scottish band Mogwai’s new scotch whisky will be available on January 28, with just enough time to warm us up during this frigid winter. Their tipple is a 10 year-old Speyside, which, Stereogum notes, means this was just being put into casks while they were touring Happy Songs For Happy People.
