A traditional delivery was made for a very special beer yesterday.
Windsor & Eton Brewery’s new beer, 90 Glorious Years, was created to mark the Queen’s birthday and was delivered to the Windsor Farm Shop by Shire horses.
Handler Derek Hilton guided the horses Major and Roger, pulling a trailer full with barrels of beer, to the shop on the edge of Home Park.
The special birthday pale ale is brewed with traditional Maris Otter barley grown on the Royal Farms in Windsor.
The brewery, which is based in the Vansittart Estate, has also commissioned nine collectable beer mats celebrating an event from each decade of Her Majesty’s.
Each mat has an original design, a pub quiz question about that event and will be released this summer.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
