Tomorrow evening see's the release of two new tees both designed by Josh Parkin, both on a similar theme.
'A Rush and a Push' and 'ACID HOUSE' both loosely inspired by the classic Charles M. Schulz Peanuts artwork, this features a late 80's/early 90's twist, celebrating the boom of acid house and the rave era. As does the 'Rush' artwork with an indiosyncratic CC twist. Complete with a Smiths inspired line. This one's on Ash Grey and a new bright Pink tee, t'other on White and Turquoise. Online Thursday 7pm. TC

We've only gone and brewed our own beer, it's been well documented how one of our favourite past times is good old pubs and the real ale revolution. So with that in mind, it was always a long intention, dare we say even a bit of a dream to do this. After several long months, discussions and the odd taste tests, we put our heads together with our friends from Soho; Sam, Rhydian, Ryan and Aaron at Weekend Offender and decided it was something we should just go ahead and do!
Working with the independent Derby based brewery Dancing Duck we came up with a nice summery session ale that features a combination of three hops - Citra from the USA, Admiral from the UK, and Dana from Slovenia. At 4.3% this is on the ever so slightly stronger side of a typical 'session' ale, but not too strong at all. Just what we like - refreshing, light and hoppy, a great colour and varied taste of fruit, hops, barley and pine. Due to the hoppy content, we went with the first name we could come up and it worked out well, it just stuck. These will be exclusively available via Weekend Offender, due to logistical/distribution factors. These come as a four pack in a special box with beer mats with special artwork by our good pal Peter O'Toole. This was a long drawn out process where the four of us were also helped with other chaps keen to see this come to fruition, special thanks go to our friend Lennie who helped with the ongoing headfuck that was the box design. Feels a bit like the Oscars this, sorry. We're just dead chuffed we've finally made a bevvie, get it whilst you can. Get pissed with us! ***UPDATE***
Due to a delay on licensing this release has had to be put back until next week. Apologies!

After last years remarkable reversible hat with our brothers from another mother over in Berlin, it was only right we get another done. So, another pretty unique and a little bit crazy, hat was born.
One side features a classic perforated Navy sensible option, while the reverse features some ace Berlin wall busting artwork with the 'BG Bear' and his big jug of Pilsner, this full screenprinted side has an intricately matched 'Berlin wall' theme throughout with the design going onto the top and brim of the hat. This was hand made, hand screenprinted and then hand finished in Friedrichshain, Berlin in a small tailor's shop. Click here to see it in action. Breaking down walls since 1989.
Available Weds June 24th (7pm) TC

Now then, as you may or may not be aware we've been waiting for a big bunch of new tees to arrive for a while now, both for ourselves and any participating stockists.
After a bit of a hold up they're finally starting to arrive. First in, so first up is the Rail Jibbers tee.
This tee is a pisstakery piece of fun of the campaign from the 80s, Rail Riders.
Rail Riders was a young person's club run by British Rail between 1981 and 1991. This light hearted twist version incorporated that ace old logo with a nod to the age old tradition of jibbing en route to the match or maybe even the odd family excursion 'To pay is to fail' etc

Tomorrow see's the release of our London Dresser tee.
'How come a Northern based brand releasing a tee called London Dresser' you may well say?
Well it's pretty simple, we spend quite a bit of time in our capital, it's one of the best cities in the world, (if not a bit too expensive). This tee came about with meetings down there and friends and acquaintances through the brand. Inspired by the pubs, the ale, the gear we wear and the surroundings and of course not forgetting the bi-monthly CAMRA magazine 'London Drinker' you'd see in those choice boozers we'd be visiting.
The tee has been produced in cahoots with our friends at Pit2Pit Magazine a reworking of that rather snazzy logo incorporating all of the above. So yes that's what this is all about, a tribute to our capital, for those who like the great pubs, drinking great ale and dead nice coats and clobber.
This one was thoguht up fittingly from a few pints in an old back street boozer, The White Lion, near Old Street, which closed shortly after (it's reopened now thankfully). With smaller design to left chest when worn and featuring a small ale glass related back logo under the collar, the tee comes on both Sand and Jade colour tees. Online 7pm Thursday. TC
