ABOUT US

British rock legends Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt have worked with Hobsons Brewery to craft a traditional chestnut ale, named after the band’s 1971 album ‘Dog of Two Head'.  'Dog of Two Head' is a 4.2% traditional ale, with a modern citrus twist delivered by the British Hops. This is a suble ale deftly uniting and balancing the influence of malt, hops and natural bitterness. A bespoke ale of distinction that offers a refined pedigree based on character and tradition; qualities that define Status Quo.

5% of profits from this product with be donated to Dogs Trust to help save the lives of thousands of stray and abandoned dogs across the UK. Registered Charity Numbers:227523 & SC037843

'Dog of Two Head' is crafted by an independent, sustainable, innovative brewer Hobsons based in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Picked for their credentials and ethos of sourcing the finest British ingredients, Hobsons is a leading craft brewer in the region and is taking to the National stage with Status Quo. ‘Dog’ is created by Hobsons from British malting barley, and a blend of UK-grown Fuggles, Challenger, Goldings and Progress hops.

Established in 1993 by the Davis family, Hobsons Brewery is now a leading craft brewer in Shropshire and one of the most sustainable breweries in the UK. Based in Cleobury Mortimer, Hobsons cask ales and bottled beers are brewed with traditional brewing techniques and ingredients sourced from supply chains forged with local barley growers and hop farmers. A strong commitment to quality, local sourcing and reducing the breweries carbon footprint by introducing green technologies has earned Hobsons regional and national awards - notably CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain in 2007 and SIBA’s Best Green Business in 2010.
