Triple Point Brewery: Sky's Edge Gold

369 1553772786

Brand new musical Standing at the Sky's Edge is a mere two weeks into its run at the Crucible Theatre and it's safe to say that it's already proving to be an enormous hit with audiences. With original songs penned by none other than Richard Hawley, the show is a love letter to Park Hill and to Sheffield.

Now, the magic surrounding the show is to be further augmented by the release of an extra special cask ale brewed by Sheffield microbrewery, Triple Point. The beer is called Sky's Edge Gold and as you might expect it's a highly quaffable, golden ale made from honeyed malts combined with citrusy Cascade and peachy Aurora hops, coming in at a very respectable 4% ABV.

You'll be able to enjoy a pint or two at the Crucible and Crucible Corner until the show's final performance on 6 April, and at a variety of pubs in and around Sheffield. The nice folks at Triple Point will also be donating 10% of every sale to Sheffield Theatres' community engagement work.

Dan Bates, Chief Executive at Sheffield Theatres, said: "Standing at the Sky's Edge is Sheffield through and through, from Hawley's fantastic music to the amazing costume makers and stage team who are making it happen; this is a show that celebrates everything that is great about our city. It's made here in Sheffield and it packs a punch - so to have a beer that shares these qualities named after the show, seems very fitting!"

"It was a rather unusual request," added Mike Brook owner of Triple Point Brewery. "But we liked the way that Sheffield Theatres aims to bring music and creativity to people of all ages, plus the fact that the musical is set almost on our doorstep and the Crucible theatre is just down the road, made it an easy decision for us to lend our support. It was quite short notice to meet the opening night of the new musical, but we managed to create our own first production of a golden cask ale in time for curtain up."

If you're yet to visit Triple Point Brewery, you can find them at 178 Shoreham Street. Cheers!
