Decca Records, the UK’s longest running record label, and prestigious London craft beer company, Portobello Brewing Company, have today launched their collaborative beer – the Decca Supreme Ale.
Like Decca, which has worked with a staggering array of legendary and world-class artists and released countless landmark records – the Session Ale offers an equally well-rounded and meticulously crafted finish.
Decca 90 curator Daryl Easlea commented, “To mark the final phase of Decca’s 90th anniversary, we are absolutely delighted to celebrate with this fine session ale brewed by our friends at the Portobello Brewery.”
There are also plenty more exciting events to come as part of Decca’s 90th anniversary plans:
October 8th – The Classic FM Live Decca 90 Gala: Decca is set to join forces with Classic FM for a special concert at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London, featuring label signees Gareth Malone and chart-topping classical pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason plus a very special guest.
October 9th - Cheltenham International Book Festival: Decca is hosting a panel discussion on its colourful history, examining the pivotal moments that helped shape the label and what the future holds. The panel will be comprised of President of Decca Records Rebecca Allen, Gareth Malone, one of their star artists known to millions in the UK from the TV show The Choir, and Daryl Easlea (Decca: The Supreme Record Company).
October 10th - Louder Than Words Festival: Decca will also call at Manchester’s literature event to tell the story of why the historic label is still going strong.
This year sees one of the most iconic record labels in the world, Decca Records, turn 90 years old. Since its formation in 1929, Decca has burgeoned from a prosperous British company to a fully-fledged international powerhouse – quickly earning the title as ‘The Supreme Record Company’ – a statement that resonates stronger than ever today.
Decca has been the home to countless legendary musicians from Luciano Pavarotti to David Bowie, Dame Vera Lynn to Bing Crosby, Tom Jones to Billie Holiday, and is now providing the platform for a new generation of ambitious artists at the forefront of their scenes – names such as Andrea Bocelli, Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Gregory Porter, who continue to represent the label’s cultural legacy.
Throughout 2019, Decca has been celebrating its nine decades of excellence, marking the occasion with: the release of The Supreme Record Company: The Story Of Decca Records 1929-2019 book, the critically-acclaimed Ron Howard-directed Pavarotti feature film, a packed out event at London’s prestigious V&A Museum, a unique series of concerts in London, Berlin and Paris, 90 reissues and releases, podcasts, radio shows and much more.
