Royal Wedding Beers - Castle Rock + Windson/Eton

I make no apology for saying that I am looking forward to seeing some of the 2011 Royal Wedding beers hitting the bars in the next month or three. Those from 1981 that I am opening and tasting are pretty much undrinkable.

Two early announcements, Windsor Knot from Windsor and Eton Brewery and Kiss Me Kate from Castle Rock, show at the very least that today's breweries have a bit more imagination about the name of the beers than the pedestrian Royal Ale, Bridal Ale or Prince of Ales from 1981.

This time I intend to drink the damn things rather than stick them in a cupboard for thirty years.

Bring it on guys ....
