Peter Saville has teamed up with Tate to create the artwork for its new beer, Switch House, celebrating the opening of the new Tate Modern Switch House extension.

The 4.8% pale has been brewed and canned by Fourpure Brewing Co – based two miles from the Tate Modern in Bermondsey – in collaboration with the gallery.

Tate wanted to create a modern style pale ale to fit with the aesthetic of the newly opened Tate Modern Bar, according to Fourpure Brewing Co.

Switch House comes in a limited run silver can, featuring a brightly coloured geometric design by Saville. It is designed to represent the shape of the extension, helping visitors to understand the gallery’s new layout and how the spaces are used.

The beer will be available at all Tate Galleries including Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Modern and Tate Britain. It can also be bought off trade through We Brought Beer.
