Maximo Park brew up their signature beer

A north east band are brewing up plans for what they hope will be their next hit.

In celebration of the release of their new album, the band has launched their own beer – Maximo No. 5 – at a North Shields brewery.

Keen ale drinkers, the band teamed up with the local award winning North Shields brewers Mordue Brewery to create their own unique beer.

“To celebrate the release of our fifth album we wanted to create our unique Maximo Park amber/red beer, and, in a flash of inspiration, we decided at once to call it No. 5 and make it five per cent ABV.”

Available in limited quantities, both on draft and bottled, the idea being that fans are able to purchase bottles on the band’s upcoming UK tour meanwhile the draft version will be available in selected places in the towns and cities the band visit as they tour the UK.

The bottled version is also available to buy from the band’s website – www. – and the brewers website –

Too Much Information’ is released on February 3.

Maxïmo Park and their No. 5 will be playing on March 21 and 22 at Newcastle’s O2 Academy.
