The Piano Players APA

Burgess Website new
The Piano Players APA
Date: 20th February 2017


Anthony Burgess, who was born in 1917 and died in 1993, was a writer and composer who is regarded as one of the leading novelists of the twentieth century. His works are widely read all over the world. Burgess was a cultural figure whose work addresses many of the important issues of his time, including censorship, multi-culturalism, individual freedom and sexual liberation. His most famous novel, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1962), was adapted into a film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971.

 

The International Anthony Burgess Foundation is a charity that encourages and supports public and scholarly interest in all aspects of the life and work of Anthony Burgess. Based in Manchester, England, we have an extensive library, archive and study centre containing Burgess’s books, music and papers. We also have a performance venue where we present new work by writers, artists and musicians.

 

Anthony Burgess would have celebrated his 100th birthday on 25 February 2017. This special anniversary beer, THE PIANOPLAYERS, takes its name from Burgess’s 1986 novel based on his experiences growing up in Manchester in the 1920s and 1930s, and his memories of his father Joe who played the piano in theatres, pubs and silent cinemas.

 

This is a 5.2% American Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo, Mosaic & Simcoe, with a classic Thornbridge-style light malt base to produce a very fruity and fresh beer. Piano Players offers a pungent combination of intense citrus and tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, apricots, papaya and red berries.

 

To find out more about the great work The Anthony Burgess Foundation does please visit www.anthonyburgess.org

 

The Piano Players American Pale will be available in the Thornbridge Online Shop & Brewery Shop from Monday February 27th

Say it with Beer this Valentines Day


We decided to make February easier for everyone by putting together a box of flowers, chocolate and strawberries – all in beer form! 

 

Cocoa Porter 6.8% ABV

Cocoa Wonderland is a full bodied, robust porter with natural mocha malt flavours from the complex malt grist, complementing the decadent additions of real cocoa beans to the maturation process. A truly wonderful, award winning Chocolate beer.


I Love You Will U Marry Me - Strawberry Blonde Ale 4.5% ABV

I Love You Will U Marry Me is a light blonde ale matured with a very large amount of strawberries.

These complement the fruitiness of the beer and result in a natural sweetness balanced with just a hint of tartness creating a hugely refreshing and very drinkable beer

 

Raindrops on Roses 5.3% ABV

A Beautiful Belgian Wit style beer, brewed with rose petals. Winner of The Great British Home Brew Challenge 2016 created by Phil Sisson.

Location: Thornbridge Riverside Brewery


We are very pleased to introduce Ouroboros, a brand new limited edition 8.5% Double IPA to our keg beer range that will be doing the rounds at The Thornbridge Taps and beyond!
