A new British beer to celebrate the Royal Wedding

Breweries have been hard at work producing special celebration ales with which to toast the health of Prince William and Kate Middleton - from Castle Rock's Kiss Me Kate and Marston's Perfect Union to Something Blue from Durham Brewery and I Will from Wold Top.

Wadworth brewery in Devizes, Wiltshire, is rolling out a Better Half ale and product manager Christine Evers said: 'We thought what better than to have a bit of fun and celebrate our heritage and Royal family with a celebratory ale.

'People are going to have more time to spend in the pub and we wanted to share in the celebration by creating a truly British product for them to enjoy.' Adnams' brewery in Southwold, Suffolk, has launched its limited edition Royal Wedding ale.

 Head brewer Fergus Fitzgerald said: 'Adnams has a history of brewing special beers to mark Royal weddings - three generations of them - so we couldn't let this one pass without opening up the recipe book again.'

Business is already booming for the Windsor & Eton Brewery, Berkshire, founded less than a year ago. Interest in its specially brewed Windsor Knot ale has come from as far afield as America, New Zealand and Australia.

The British Beer and Pub Association chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: 'Fine British beers have always been crucial to the nation's economic and cultural heart, so it is only appropriate that brewers are pulling out all the stops to make this a truly enjoyable event.'
