Docks Beers are soon to unveil a new brew - and its very different to anything else in their range.
The craft brewery is stepping into new territory, with its very first lager.
Named Overtime, it will be launched next month at an exclusive tasting event open to an exclusive audience.
It joins the Grimsby-based company's session pale ale Hard Graft, new world IPA Never Say Die and milk stout Graveyard Shift.

Co-owner Shahram Shadan said: “Our craft lager, Overtime, has almost finished fermenting in one of the tanks and we’re very pleased with the way it is already tasting.
"Our taproom sells a lot of lager from craft breweries such as Camden and Meantime. It seemed like a no brainer to make our own.
"Our lager is called Overtime to carry on the theme of our beer names inspired by the hard work ethic of the dockers.”
The lager will be officially launched at a tasting event at its King Edward Street base.
Its launch comes at an exciting time for the brewery as it bids to open a 200-seat venue for gigs and live comedy.

Head brewer Mike Richards said: “The process of brewing lager is different to that used for IPAs and stouts.
"We use lager yeast and Saaz hops from the Czech Republic and we allow it to ferment for much longer than our other beers.
"But being able to make lager at all is a real vindication of the investment we have made in the brewhouse in Grimsby.
"Our new sealed fermenting vessels are perfect for carbonation that is essential for lager production.
"We are sure it will prove popular with our taproom and trade customers.”
The brewery is offering 20 pairs of tickets to its exclusive tasting event in March.
