Skindred not only play the Download Festival Main Stage at 3.30pm today, but are also launching their own beer, a specially brewed Jamaican Stout with Box Social Brewing called 'Union Black' after the bands cult album. The Ragga Metallers are the kind of band you just have to go and see live, raising the roof in any venue they play. Their heady, unique fusion of music styles and vibrant creativity, alongside their aim of bringing people of all backgrounds together, and achievements doing so, drew Ross Holland (Head Brewer of Box Social Brewing) to want to work with this iconic band. The moniker they hit on was ‘Union Black’ after Skindred’s fourth album: a complex, unique beer, that unites both rich roasted bitter flavours, with the sweetness of vanilla and the spice of Jamaica!
