LYE-based Sadler's Brewery has teamed up with West Midlands Railway to create a new brew for rail passengers.

'Last Train Home', a session IPA, has been made by the Black Country brewers to celebrate more evening trains across the West Midlands network.

Rail passengers can now travel on any West Midlands service and back again after 6.30pm for £2.50.

The cask beer is described as 'zesty and fragrant' and will be based in Birmingham city centre bars to quench the thirst of rail passengers travelling back to the Black Country.

Chris Dew, marketing manager at Sadler’s Brewery, said: “It’s been a fantastic partnership working with West Midlands Railway to create the Last Train Home cask ale. It’s great having more late evening trains available – our brewery is at Lye station so the availability of improved later evening services will help provide travel for our customers where they can enjoy a lower ABV beer and still get home responsibly and safely.”

Andy Camp, commercial director at West Midlands Railway, added: “We couldn’t think of a better way to mark the launch of our new and improved late night and evening services than partnering with Sadler’s – a much-loved local brewery based at Lye station on our railway line!”
