Blur star to brew beer
Blur pop star Alex James is venturing into the beer world.
Alex said, “I’ve basically become a monk – I make cheese and now I’ve started making beer.”
The bassist is no stranger to venturing into the food and drink world, having been a cheesemaker for a number of years, and has now created his own brewery.
While there are no details as to when his special brew will be available to purchase, it’s unlikely that it will be ready for Blur’s Hyde Park gig on 12 August.
It is a big year for the group as they will headline the concert to close the London Olympics in a “Best of British” celebration concert.
