Scottish football fans scramble to purchase new ‘football in a bottle’ beer

Scottish football fans are salivating after Drygate Brewery released their new Bovril ‘A Brew From The Terrace' ahead of Scotland's European Championship run this summer. The drink is titled after popular BBC Scotland show ‘A View From The Terrace' and is now available to be purchased on the Drygate website.

Interest in the new drink has been building ever since the brewery announced that they were brewing the drink last year. The new ‘bold and beefy' stout is made with real Bovril and is said to be Drygate's most creative and experimental creation to date.

The limited edition bottle will be 330ml in size and have an ABV of 5.2%. It isn't suitable for vegetarians or vegans and is expected to fly off the shelves ahead of Euro 2024 so act quickly if you want to have a taste.

Scottish football fans to enjoy Drygate's ‘most eagerly anticipated' ever

Dryagate's Managing Director, Matt Corden, has spoken of his excitement ahead of the release of the new bovril/beer hybrid. He told Glasgow World:

“This has definitely been one of the most eagerly anticipated releases ever at Drygate. Ever since the announcement, we’ve had people ask every day when they can try it. The tension has been palpable.

“There’s quite a bit of crossover between diehard fans of A View From The Terrace, and our loyal customers, so it was the perfect opportunity to do something fun that celebrates an icon in Scottish football circles. We’re huge fans and because of our size, we’re able to do more experimental, fun releases which follow our passions and get people talking.

“This is football in a bottle – the undisputed flavour of the sport in this country. I think curiosity will get the better of everyone. I was genuinely shocked I enjoyed the beer as much as I did. We’ll see what others think.”
