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.”

What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
