Halifax-based indie rock band The Orielles have teamed up with North Brewing Co to create a beer to celebrate the band’s Tableau album tour this spring.
A light, 4.6% ABV session pale ale, Citra hops provide a strong fruit backbone, and Idaho 7 and Eclipse bring a range of
citrus zest flavours.
The brewery team have been long-time fans of the band and jumped at the chance to work with them on a beer. Alongside collaborating on the brew, band member Henry Carlyle worked closely with North’s designer, James Ockleford, of Refold Studio, to create the can and lens artwork.
The beer will be available at independent venues and bottle shops during the band’s upcoming UK tour (22nd March – 14th April). Fans can also get their hands on the beer via the North Brewing Co webshop from noon on Wednesday, 15th March.
Henry said: “Tableau is a celebration of the release of the 2022 album of the same name. We wanted to partner up with North Brewing Co to create something special to be enjoyed alongside a playthrough 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 album’s 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 of 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!”
