One of the best known symbols of Manchester, the worker bee, has taken the city by storm.
Now pub goers have the chance to celebrate their love for the city with a special glass, which turns their beer into a Manchester bee.
The limited edition Manchester Bee Glass, launched by brewers Joseph Holt, features black horizontal stripes, which, when filled with golden beer, will take on a bee like appearance.
The worker bee glass has been launched to mark the 170th anniversary of the iconic Manchester-based brewery, Joseph Holt, and their latest keg ale – Northern Hop.
Jane Kershaw, sixth generation member of the Holt family, commented: “Northern Hop, our latest ale, is very popular with young people who are turning to pale ales in increasing numbers. So, this glass combines a strong, proud nod to our history in a cool, collector’s item.”
The Manchester Bee Glass is available in 77 of Joseph Holt’s 126 pubs across the North West, including the Ape and Apple, the Grafton Arms, and The Old Monkey. Find the full list of participating pubs here.
To get a glass simply ask for a loyalty card in one of the selected pubs and receive a sticker every time you order a pint of Northern Hop. Once five pints have been marked off you will be given a Manchester Bee Glass for free.
