…or game over. We finally got the sign off from Buxton Brewery for our latest designs after some challenging processes. We printed 4 colours onto silver substrate, leaving certain areas blank. This allowed the silver to shine through. Other areas were left blank apart from a reduced opacity colour giving a cool metallic effect.
There are seven enormous barrel aged beers in the range. These have been tasted nurtured, blended and sampled over the last two and a half years. There are Imperial Porters, Imperial Stouts, Dessert Beer, and Barley Wine. Coffee, Cacao and Chilli all feature, and the barrels used are some of the best from the transatlantic worlds of Highlands and Islands Scotch and the rich heritage of Bourbon.
“Themed on great Chess Grandmasters and Champions of the 19th and 20th Centuries, these beers span the decades, echoing complexity, subtlety, guile and creativity. From the 19th century’s Morphy and Steinitz, through Capablanca’s early 20th century dominance, to Lasker, Tal and Rudenko. All reflect the patience, skill, and determination to strive to be the best at what you do.”Buxton Brewery
