Now fans of British band New Order have something to reach for if they get thirsty.

The electro-pop group -- which rose to fame in the '80s after the death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis -- has become the latest band to get into the beer business.

New Order have teamed up with the U.K.'s Moorhouse Brewery to produce the ale Stray Dog, the band announced on its website.

Stray Dog -- named for a track off the band's latest album, "Music Complete" -- is described as "a refreshing and clean-tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness."

"It's been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse's of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they're celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west," the band said in a statement.

Stray Dog will be available in pubs in the U.K. later this year.
