York Minstermen are delighted to announce that this years Bootham Crescent Beer Festival will incorporate a newly brewed beer ‘York City State of Mind’ named after York City’s official Wembley anthem composed by Chuitar.
Specially brewed by Revolutions Brewery, ‘York City State of Mind’ will compromise a red ale, dry-hopped in the cask to create a medium to high bitterness with a bold hop flavour. The beer is one of two to be made by Revolutions Brewery specifically for the event.
Mark Seaman, of Revolutions Brewery said “We’re delighted to be involved in this year’s Bootham Crescent Beer Festival and to help recognise York City’s home for 80 memorable years. Our beers all carry a musical reference, so combining beer, music and York City by highlighting Chuitar’s hit is too good an opportunity to miss!”
Chairman of York Minstermen, Frank Ormston said, “This year’s festival coincides with the 80th anniversary of York City moving to Bootham Crescent, so many of the beers will commemorate notable moments in the club’s history. It’s a great way to celebrate the current team’s achievements as well as those of the past.”
And if a new beer isn’t quite enough to tempt your taste buds, free scotch eggs will be offered to the buyers of the first ten pints. With the song stating that you ‘gotta love a scotch egg’ customers will be racing to the bar to pick up a free tasty snack.
Creator of the song ‘York City State of Mind’ Chuitar, whose video has had over 20, 000 hit on you tube is also backing the beer and was said to describe it as “a lovely idea”.
The festival will be held in the Pitchside Bar at City’s Bootham Crescent home between June 21st and June 24th. Entrance will cost £10 and will include five half-pint vouchers, a commemorative pint glass and a souvenir programme. So if exciting new beer and scotch eggs really are your thing, be sure to purchase a ticket from the York City Club Shop at Boothman Crescent or alternatively, head to the supporter’s office on match day.
