Skindred release their own beer ‘Union Black’ with Box Social ahead of Download 2019

One of the many bands you MUST SEE this weekend at Download Festival is Skindred. Benji Webbe and his rag-tag gang of ragga-punk-metallers have been entertaining crowds for over 20 years now, as well as some amazing tunes coming up, the Newport band have announced they are releasing their own beer ‘Union Black’ in collaboration with Box Social.

‘Union Black’ is a Jamaican Stout and was inspired by the band’s Newcastle gig attended by Ross Holland, head brewer of Box Social, who immediately contacted Benji Webbe to work on this new beer.

See the awesome can design below:

This beer is the perfect representation of Box Social Brewing and Skindred,” says Ross, “And can be enjoyed by all people, together. Best enjoyed listening to their unique sound, we hope you like it!

In the past Box Social have created a beer inspired by Linkin Park called ‘Hybrid Theory’.
