IF you’re looking for a tipple while watching Match of the Day, you couldn’t go far wrong with these football themed beers.

Launched by lifelong Ipswich Town fan Josh Bartlett, Away Days are an independent brewery that specialises in combining the beautiful game with brilliant lager.

Each is named after legends of the game and capped off with bottle designs based around the iconic kits they wore.

From Cantona’s Collar, a strong 6.1 per cent IPA to the Scandinavian Pale Schmeichale, Manchester United legends are well represented.

While, England fans can toast record goalscorer Wayne Rooney with his very own pale ale, Wayne Brewney.

And if you are fond of a German beer, why not try the 4.6 per cent Bundeslager that’s adorned in their famous 1994 World Cup kit, and worn by former greats including Jurgen Klinsmann.

Away Days even caused a bit of controversy earlier this year when they launched a drink requested by Ipswich Town fans – a Lambert Out mid-table ale.

At the time, owner Bartlett said: “I’ve been careful – I’m a lifelong Ipswich fan and there’s a fine line here, it’s a tough job without a doubt.

“He’s under a lot of pressure even though we’ve all heard how he can handle the pressure, but it just got to a point.

“I asked other fans if they would be interested in me making a beer and the market was there. It’s a bit of fun, but it’s really a way for fans to express their frustrations on about how things are right now.

“It’s a light in a really dark tunnel for Ipswich Town fans.”

The beers have even managed to draw celebrity fans, with Alan Shearer toasting his own Ale’n Shearer and TV presenter Chris Kamara enjoying his Fighting Like Beervers drink.

You can buy six and 12-packs of the beers of your choice for a very reasonable £14.99 and £28.99 respectively.

Perfect if you’re toasting your side winning on a Saturday, or drowning your sorrows.
