You Can Now Get Two-Course Roast Dinner And Jam Roly Poly Beers
Aunt Bessie's has joined forces with Northern Monk brewery to create two-course, roast dinner beers. And I'm honestly sure if that idea is genius or disgusting.
So, if you've ever knocked back a can and thought, 'that was nice, but I wish it tasted more like roast potatoes' then your time has finally come because Sunday Dinner is a 5.7 percent Roast Dinner Brown Ale that is brewed with Aunt Bessie's Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes.
For dessert, there's a Jam & Custard Pale Ale, based on Aunt Bessie's Jam RolyPoly. The 5 percent beer is brewed with plum, apricot and strawberry - the same flavours as in the roly poly - and custard to 'round out the flavours'. OK, well, that sounds pretty good.
The two companies have been working on the recipes for months and this is the first time a brewery and a food manufacturer have collaborated to create a two-course meal in liquid form.
Speaking about the collaboration, Founder of Northern Monk, Russell Bisset, said: "It's been an honour working with Aunt Bessie's, a truly iconic Northern brand.
