New Order have become the latest band into the beverage business. The group is partnering with Moorhouse’s Brewery to create "Stray Dog" beer, to receive a general release this fall.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business," the band said in a press release on their website. "Even more so that they're celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west”.

Named after a song on their most recent album, 2015's Music Complete, Stray Dog has a 4.2 percent ABV and uses American cascade, centennial and willamette hops, with English Maris Otter malt. It's described as a "refreshing and clean tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness."

Stray Dog will be launched at a party on Aug. 28 at the Sawyer's Arms in New Order's hometown of Manchester. That weekend, it will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs, and will be sold in both pubs and supermarkets across Britain shortly thereafter. There are plans to sell it overseas.

Musicians partnering with breweries and distilleries has become a big business in recent years. While Sammy Hagar's tequila and rum business is probably the best-known, other classic rock bands like Queen and AC/DC have also created their own beers. Following the success of their Trooper ale, Iron Maiden recently announced their second foray into the beer industry with a limited-edition porter called "Red 'N' Black."
