North Brewing Co launches beer with indie band The Orielles
Indie rock band The Orielles has teamed up with North Brewing Co to create a beer to celebrate the band’s Tableau album tour this spring.
The beer, named North x The Orielles Tableau, is a “light, zesty 4.6% ABV session pale ale” and uses Citra, Idaho 7 and Eclipse hops in the brew and is suitable for vegans.
The Yorkshire-based brewery, which has been long time fans of the Halifax-based band admitted it jumped at the chance to work with them on a beer. Alongside collaborating on the beer itself, band
member Henry Carlyle worked closely with North’s designer, James Ockleford of Refold Studio, to create the can and lens artwork.
Henry Carlyle, guitarist and songwriter for The Orielles said: “Tableau is a celebration of the release of 2022 album of the same name, we wanted to partner up with North Brewing Co to create something special to be enjoyed alongside a play through of the record or even live in the venue. We are big fans of the brewery and we are delighted to be able to work with them to create this very special one- off beer. When it came to the design I collaborated with North’s artist James Ockleford to come up with a reinterpretation of the albums cover, shot by Neelam Kahn Vela. We are delighted by the outcome of this and we cannot wait to see this out and available.”
Steven Ballard, co-founder, North Brewing Co added: “Collaborations are a huge part of our business at North. Whether this is with fellow brewers, local businesses and charities. We love music and we love beer. So when we got the chance to brew a beer for one of our favourite bands to come from Yorkshire, we couldn’t say no. It is great to see Henry and James involved in the artwork which looks amazing.”
Tableau will be available to buy from independent venues and bottle shops during the tour (22 March – 14 April) as well as via the North Brewing Co webshop from midday on Wednesday 15 March.
