Earache Records is very pleased to announce Beerache, an unmissable one-night-only summer party taking place on July 12th to celebrate the launch of the Digby Pearson beer, brewed by Castle Rock Brewery and available on pump at The Maze starting on the night.

The Digby Pearson beer recognises the founder and owner of independent record label Earache Records, which released some of the very first extreme metal recordings and has remained a permanent fixture in Nottingham since its formation over 25 years ago.  The 4.2% ale is the latest exclusive beer in Castle Rock's Nottinghamian range, brewed to honour Nottingham's very own heroes and heroines, with boxing legend Carl Froch next in line for the honours later this year.

Rockers and metalheads from near and far are invited to come and celebrate at the party of the summer, where there will be live performances from EVIL:DETH (featuring members of LAWNMOWER DETH with guest vocalist DR SHOCKER HELL), SKELETRON, SAVAGE MESSIAH, and DICK VENOM & THE TERRORTONES.

Earache Records founder Digby Pearson comments:

"WOW - a Digby Pearson beer - who would have thunk it?  Feels great to be sharing pump space with the likes of Su Pollard and Carl Froch.  Thanks to Castle Rock for recognising and supporting metal!!  Cheers everyone!"

Castle Rock Brewery's Lewis Townsend adds:

"Digby Pearson is number 16 in our 'Nottinghamian Celebration Ales' series, brewed to honour those from Nottingham (or called it their home) who have made a positive impact to Nottingham, the wider community or the world.  Digby Pearson was chosen for his continuing contributions to the local music scene (through his founded label, Earache Records) - and to the hardcore metal scene in general.  It is a 4.2% American-style red ale with 'New World' hops from New Zealand, which are known for their intense fruit and citrus flavours."
