British rockers Status Quo are celebrating after selling one million pints of their own brand beer.

Members of the group created Piledriver ale in collaboration with Britain's Wychwood Brewery and launched it earlier this year (14).

The drink has been a huge success and has sold its millionth pint after just seven months on sale.

Singer and guitarist Francis Rossi says, "This is incredible news - we haven't seen sales figures like that since the '70s. People seemed to love Piledriver from the moment we launched it, and that success just kept rolling."

Piledriver beer is named after one of the group's albums.
