Old School Brewery to release Try’d Harder in time for Rugby Six Nations

The 2020 Six Nations is almost upon us as England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, and Italy once again clash to lift one of Rugby Union’s most hotly contested trophies.

Handily beer lovers will be able to toast on their nation’s rugby team throughout February and March with a specially commissioned beer from Old School Brewery.

Try’d Harder has been brewed by the team at the north Lancashire brewery to ensure that beer lovers no matter who they support will be winners come the final whistle.

Garth, Old School Brewery’s head brewer has a bit of a secret passion for rugby, which is why he decided to revisit a beer he first brewed in 2015…

After a bit of thinking time Garth decided to create a punchy zesty brew with a trio of English hops rather than a heavier beer that might leave you struggling to get over the line after 90 minutes of action-packed rugby.

At 4.0% ABV Try’d Harder delivers a refreshingly zesty English Pale Ale, brim full of citrus, mango, pine, lemon, and floral characters… the perfect accompaniment to every game.

Catherine Walsh, from Old School Brewery, commented: ‘’We wanted to mark the start of the Six Nations with a different style of ale and we think Try’s Harder is just the thing to suit the occasion. Our EPA is a real winner and will definitely help create a scrum at the bar in pubs up and down the North West as rugby fans gather to cheer on their country in this year’s Six Nations.”
