We’ve brewed a beer to celebrate Viv Anderson, football coach and former player.

Not only was Viv a member of the European Cup winning Nottingham Forest squad, he was also the first black player to play in a full England international.

The beer, Viv Anderson MBE, pays hommage to the local legend. Join us on the 30th May to meet the man himself, try the beer, and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Forest’s first European Cup win!

Tickets are free but you’ll need to reserve them by clicking here. We’re holding a few places back to release on the day which will be available from the Embankment on the 30th May on a first-come-first-served basis.

We’re also raising money for Viv’s chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK, both on the day and through beer sales while stocks last. To find out more about the charity click here.
