Amongst the many (some weird, some wonderful) things being done to celebrate the 900th anniversary (as near as anyone can be sure) of one of our parish churches, St Mary's Elsenham, the local Saffron Brewery has produced a special celebratory ale, in bottles bearing the Anniversary logo.
Given that Jesus produced 120 gallons of wine at a wedding that had already drunk the place dry, I trust this way of celebrating '900 Years of Worship' will not be seen as inappropriate.
For beer buffs, the following details are given by the brewery:
The beer is Traditional style copper/amber ale with mellow, full hoppy flavour with hints of citrus and biscuit. Brewed with Maris Otter barley, Crystal malt, Amber malt, torrefied wheat, together with Challenger, Fuggles, and Goldings hops. The beer retails in 500ml bottles or in special gift-packs of four for £10 or six for £15.
I have a bottle to sample, but haven't tried it yet!Anonymous users wishing to paste in the comments box need first to select 'preview', then close the preview box. When posting your comments please give a full name and location. Comments without this information may be deleted.
