Sheffield Wednesday fans can now drink their very own club beer.

Thornbridge Brewery has produced the ‘Wednesday Pale Ale’ for match days at Hillsborough.

Simon Webster, chief executive officer of Thornbridge Brewery, said: “When we were given the opportunity to brew the official Sheffield Wednesday beer, we were delighted.

“Our managing director Jim Harrison and I have been season ticket holders for years so to have one of our own beers inside the ground is a perfect match!”

Wednesday’s Head of Catering Rob Cox added: “Establishing this association is a real coup for the club and will further enhance the matchday experience for our supporters, who I am sure will welcome the Wednesday pale ale around the stadium.”

A bottled v ersion of the 4 per cent ale will be on sale at the end of September.

It follows a Sheffield United beer, which was created by Sentinel Brewhouse earlier this year.
