The right stuff?

Whilst perusing the unexciting range of beer being offered at the next 'Spoons festival one made me do a double take and then raise not one but two eyebrows. It seems Elgood's are doing a beer called Hawkwind. 

I shouldn't have been surprised though. As Hawkwind are near universally accepted as the greatest band the world has ever known the real surprise is why it's taken so long to have a beer named after them. It does leave me with a terrible dilemma though: do I have to go to the 'Spoons festival now? Normally my answer to such questions would be you shouldn't do that, but a beer called Hawkwind does tempt me. Who knows, it could be the right stuff!

  2. Your slightly wrong Ed Iron Maiden are the greatest band ever. Hawkwind might make the top 20 tho.

  3. Have they got a beer called Sugababes aswell? I'd give that a punt.

    Obviously named after any of the 1st to 3rd line ups. Not the 4th line up. That goes without saying.
