Cheers! Sheffield indie rockers Reverend And The Makers really have a lot of bottle – around 4,000 to be exact, of their own ale, writes Graham Walker.

Fans joined The Reverened Jon McClure and the band to chill in the heatwave by raising a bottle or two at a public launch at The Stag’s Head, on Psalter Lane.
Reverend & The Makers Summer Ale, first successfully launched on draft, is now flying off the shelves in bottles and looks set to be followed with a winter verison from Bakewell-based Thornbridge Brewery.
Bottles, carrying a QR code special offer for the band’s latest album, are available at www.thornbridgebrewery.co.uk.
Guitarist Ed Cosens, a keen home brewer, said of the ale’s rave reviews: “It’s like having a hit record.”
