New Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Craft Lager Enters Canned Territory

With Original Peaky Blinder Gang Making An Entrance On Pack

Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Craft Lager is increasing its stature amongst the craft beer masses with the launch of 330ml cans and new-look 330ml bottles, each featuring real-life members of the original Peaky Blinder gang.
