An independent, family-owned brewery, Rooster’s continues to win awards on an international scale and we look forward to sharing their work with our loyal supporters.
Tom Fozard, Commercial Manager at Rooster’s, commented:
“Harrogate born and bred, me and my brother, Oliver, Rooster’s head brewer, have fond memories of attending summer football training schools run by Harrogate Town when we were kids and would often attend matches at Wetherby Road in the mid-1990’s.
“We’ve both enjoyed seeing how the club has developed over the past few years and were delighted to watch the team win promotion to the Football League at the beginning of August and contacted the Club to see if there was any way in which Rooster’s could help mark and celebrate this incredible achievement.
“The result of the collaboration is ‘Proud To Be Town’, an easy-going pilsner with the Club’s crest front and centre, that we hope will enable the whole of Harrogate raise a glass to everyone involved in putting the town well and truly on the footballing map. Cheers!”
Harrogate Town’s 1919 Venue management team Tricia Lightfoot and Hamilton Mattock added: “Having been involved In managing the Hospitality for Harrogate Town AFC for 15 years, our partnership with local brewery Rooster’s to produce our own pilsner is a very proud moment.
“The support Harrogate has shown throughout is outstanding, we ask Harrogate to raise a glass and show their support in purchasing our very own “Proud to be Town Pilsner.
“I know a good beer when I taste one, and believe me this is certainly a very quaffable beer that I am sure people will love. We have already had enquiries for as far as Canada!”
