An official beer for Orange Pip Market has been created - Blood Orange IPA - by McColl's Brewery. Pictured with the beer are Daniel Hanratty (L), Manager of the Twisted Lip on Baker Street, and Danny McColl, (R), owner of McColl's Brewery.

Orange Pip Market visitors can enjoy a taste of “summer in a glass” with the unveiling of the event’s official craft beer.

The Blood Orange IPA has been created by McColl’s Brewery and is described as “totally and utterly refreshing” and “quaffable”.

It will be on sale in many of the micropubs in the Baker and Bedford Street areas for the first market of the year on Saturday, April 28, and throughout the summer.

Danny McColl, owner of the Teesdale-based brewery, said: “We have been fans of Orange Pip for ages and your mind goes off on a tangent and you think ‘surely they need an Orange Pip beer?’ We are always up for experimenting at the brewery.

“The Baker and Bedford Street area and Orange Pip are exactly where we want to be. I lived in Middlesbrough for seven or eight years when it was only Scruffy Murphy’s before it became O’Connells. The change has been immense.

“We’ve been getting to know the landlords – The Chairman, Slater’s Pick, Twisted Lip and Sherlocks have supported us from the beginning - and when we put the idea out six months ago everyone was up for it.

“It had to have orange in it, it had to be sessionable, quaffable – nothing outlandish – it’s summer in a glass, totally and utterly refreshing.”

Middlesbrough’s Deputy Mayor and Executive member for City Centre Strategy, Cllr Charlie Rooney, said: “Orange Pip Market has been a huge success and has brought all sorts of wonderful artisan food produce to Middlesbrough.

“That it is now also inspiring producers such as McColl’s brewery to create a craft ale in the spirit of Orange Pip is brilliant. If you could bottle the Orange Pip experience you’d do it in a heartbeat, and perhaps this beer is as close as we’ll get. We hope people enjoy the Blood Orange IPA and enjoy it responsibly.”
