The Old Style Bitter has previously had its fare share of fame, being Bronze medalist at the CAMRA Great British Beer Festival 1999 and Runner-up at the CAMRA Champion Ale of Wales 1999. So it is hoped that the richly coloured malty bitter will be a roaring success in the USA.
Hurns Brewery became Neath major sponsors for the 2006/07 season. The OSB beer has proved a hit with the fans, quickly becoming the best selling bitter in the clubhouse.
Head coach Rowland Phillips said: 'We have a tough game on Saturday against Maesteg and we felt loading the lorry to help out the boys at Hurns was an ideal opportunity to get the team flexing their muscles in preparation for the big game. We are hoping if we win the game the boys will be rewarded with a few bottles of OSB as a thank you!'
