Hops and Shots, based in Buckshaw Village, has created a special range of beer to support Chorley FC's game against Derby County on Saturday (January 9).

The specially brewed Magpipa Black IPA and the 1883 Lager are both available to order from the company's website and can be collected from their HQ in Ordnance Road before the big game.

Priced at £15 for 6x330ml cans to £63.00 for 24x330ml mixed cans, a portion of the profit will go directly to the club to help support them through the third national lockdown.

Commercial director Tony Greenwood said: "Whilst this won't plug the hole left by an empty ground, it generates supporter engagement and can give the club at least some revenue where there has previously been none."

The 1883 Lager, named after the year Chorley FC was formed, has been described as a "traditional football fans classic lager" that is "crisp, refreshing, and flavoursome."

Magpipa Black IPA, on the other hand, is said to be "a flowy sessionable ale" with "super citrusy floral aromas."

Handpicked by Chorley FC, both beers have been brewed and produced in Lancashire, with small businesses used throughout the supply chain.
