Beattie Tribute Beer Launched
Friday, 7th Dec 2018 12:43
Away Days Beer Company, which is run by lifelong Town fan and TWTD Forum poster Josh Bartlett, has taken its range to seven with one of the new additions an ale paying tribute to Blues legend Kevin Beattie, who died in September aged 64.
The Beat is a 4% pale ale created after numerous fans contacted Josh, who launched the company earlier in the year
"While conscious that Beattie’s passing was very recent, the demand from fans for a beer to remember the defensive legend was clear to see,” Josh said.
“I hope that the '78 inspired kit colours on the bottles and cask clips will meet the approval of fans and that the beer can be enjoyed whilst reminiscing about arguably the greatest player ever to wear a Town shirt."
Hopsters on St Nicholas Street are stocking all seven of Away Days beers which also include three new beers with West Ham and England affiliations.
Also, with Christmas just around the corner, there is an ITFC-themed three-bottle gift set in the shop which includes The Beat, Hoppy Robson and Boncho
Josh added: “Thanks for the continued support from Town fans in helping get the Away Days name out there.
“What has been a particularly big help has been the fans that have requested Away Days in pubs which has led to these pubs then contacting us to put on the beers.
"Long may we continue to celebrate the beautiful game with beautiful beer from Away Days.”

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
