The Saracens official fan club are bringing up their club lager Wolfpack for European rugby cup, when the London team will take on ASM Clermont Auvergne at Murrayfield this Saturday.

Harry’s Bar in Edinburgh’s west end will be the only Scottish outlet for this beer, making the one-off rugby event even more special for fans of the sport and craft beer.

Harry’s will be offering it from this Friday when former Saracens players – and Wolfpack brewers – Alistair Hargreaves and Chris Wyle will be hosting a meet the maker type event – or at the very least they’ll be chatting to fans.

The pair launched the craft beer company three years ago as they planned for their retirement.

The name for the brand came from an old Saracens’ nickname – which came about after a former coach referred to the team as “a pack of wolves”.

On the Saturday, the Saracen’s official fan club have also booked Harry’s for an evening of victory celebrations  (they hope) where many of them will be enjoying the social animals’ favourite beer, Wolfpack.
