A New Zealand rugby legend is teaming up with a Windsor brewery for a second season to produce a special drop of beer.
Zinzan Brooke, who is now based at Windsor RFC, has helped the Windsor and Eton Brewery produce Zinzan's Drop.
The bitter commemorates Brooke's mammoth 47-metre drop goal against England in the 1995 Rugby World Cup semi-final.
5p from every pint sold will be donated to supporting youth rugby in Windsor.
While the brewery has made the bitter black by design, beer lovers can expect a dry, fruit hop aroma.
Hops from Zinzan's home country were also used in the brewing process.
Paul O'Connell from the brewery said: "We've got the Six Nations and the World Cup this year so we thought we'd really get behind it."
Beer lovers can try Zinzan's Drop throughout the Six Nations as the brewery in Vansittart Estate will be showing live coverage of the tournament on its big screens.
