We are proud to be the home of Spandau Ballet’s ,Tony Hadley’s new beer
Gold 4.0% – a true golden lager
Tony has been a long time beer enthusiast and started his own brewery in Suffolk in 2008 ( Red Rat brewery ), although the brewery closed in 2011, Tony’s passion continued and he chose to move his brand to a brewery that could handle large sales, great branding and the highest quality procedures – that’ll be us then !
We got to work on his new 80’s themed branding and our team sat down with Tony to develop the new recipe for his signature beer. The first brew was done by Tony himself.
Gold 4.0% is a smooth, light golden lager brewed with full flower hops for a fruity aftertaste. A great session beer for lager drinkers and beer lovers alike.

Tony Hadley, lead singer of popular eighties group Spandau Ballet has launched a new beer, aptly named ‘Hadley’s Gold’ after one of the band’s biggest hits.
The new beer has been brewed at The Great Yorkshire Brewery, based in the North York Moors National Park and is available as cask, keg and bottle. After success with his own microbrewery brewery, The Red Rat, he decided to move production and work with a partner brewery with larger capacity and the food standard quality procedures to enable him to take the beer nationally and export.
The beer recipe was designed by Tony himself and after a day of trialling ingredients he decided on a combination of malts to give the beer balance and it’s golden colour, with hops from the UK, America and Australia to provide the complex fruity aftertaste, and all brewed with lager yeast for a clean, crisp finish.
The beer has already been showcased by Tony on stage on the current Spandau Ballet tour.
Tony says ‘I’m very privileged to be able to say I have businesses in two things I’m passionate about – music & beer ! The new brewery partnership means people all over the UK and abroad will be able to drink the beer and I can have full confidence in it’s flavour and quality’
Described as a crisp and refreshing golden lager with a fruity aftertaste, and at 4.00% ABV, the beer is now available to buy through www.thegreatyorkshirebrewery.co.uk
