Francis Rossi said, “We know what we like. And we know what our fans like. And I think we can all agree that we like these!”
Rick Parfitt added, “It’s no secret that over the years the band has enjoyed a drink or three. Finally, we’re actually seeing a return on those wasted hours by creating something useful. We love it!”
Both ‘Dog Of Two Head’ and ‘Down Down’ will be available online. The beer can be purchased from www.hobsons-brewery.co.uk/statusquobeer. The cider can be ordered online from: www.celticmarches.com/detail/status-quo-down-down-4-6-herefordshire-cider.
