And now they can raise a toast to the world famous artist after taking in the Mausoleum of the Giants with a new special drink.

Giants, created by True North Brew Co, is a six per cent stout with seven malts, and is on sale at venues including The Devonshire in the city centre, just minutes away from the exhibition of giant sculptures in a former industrial factory on Milton Street. 

The new stout

Head brewer Dean Hollingworth said: ‘We are proud to be a local brewery, based in Sheffield city centre, so to be able to collaborate with artist Phlegm to produce a brand new stout is a fantastic opportunity to truly showcase the talent Sheffield has to offer.’

Phlegm - known as the Sheffield Banksy - said: “I was lucky enough to get a whistle stop tour of Dean’s brewing empire! A lot of time goes into just one brew, I’ll be drinking the humble pint with a whole new appreciation. It’s been a pleasure creating Giants with True North to coincide with Mausoleum of the Giants, a perfect opportunity to support local business and produce.”

As part of the collaboration, his Giants design will be featured across four beer mats to make a single image. Phlegm will do a unique drawing on one set which will go to auction for the Lord Mayor’s charity. 

Follow True North Brew Co on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to look out for the chance to bid.

Eye Witness Works. Mausoleum of the Giants - a monumental title fitting for a new spectacular sculptural installation showcase by artist Phlegm in his hometown of Sheffield, UK. The artist, illustrator and cartoonist, who earned worldwide recognition with his intricate, narrative-rich murals painted on carefully selected public or abandoned structures, is continuing his exploration of mediums and scales and this time hes gone big.
