Ed Harcourt Launches 'Dark Heart' Beer With Signature Brew

Ed Harcourt and Signature Brew are proud to announce Dark Heart, a very special collaboration beer.

Signature Brew are well known for their musical collaborations having previously brewed with the likes of Enter Shikari, Professor Green, Dry The River and Frank Turner.

Sam McGregor from Signature Brew on the collaboration "When we were looking to make an extra special craft beer, we needed to find an artist with an extraordinary depth to their craft and a willingness to experiment; Ed Harcourt could not have been more perfect. After an extensive tasting session with Ed, it was decided that a big Brown Ale was required to match the artistry and vision of Ed's music."

Throwing a big 6.8% punch of brooding, smoky, oaken flavours - this is not a beer for the faint of heart. Brewed in an initial limited edition run of just 1,000 bottles by Head Brewer Tom Bott, assisted by Ed who provided his assistance, drinking wisdom and finely-honed palette.  

Ed Harcourt's critically acclaimed songwriting demanded a beer that doesn't disappear quickly from the tongue. Four malts are used to give the intensive backbone, letting the transatlantic hops glide over the top adding high notes and finish.

Ed has this to say on the matter...

"Beer has always been there for me. Like an errant lover it has run out on me countless times yet it still keeps coming back. It's pull is it's punch you see. Whether it's that Bombardier on the rug by the fire that I just made myself with my own manly hands or the Michelada in my local mexican restaurant that weakens the hellish grasp of the night before, it's an old friend that can be used as a crutch or indeed the oil within the social machine. I've been very honoured to design my own beer and I can't wait for you to all try this deep, dark ale that was forged in the caves of south London. All Hail Dark Heart!"
Available to pre-order now in 330ml bottles.
