Church celebrates birthday with a beer

What better way to celebrate a 750th birthday than with a beer brewed for the occasion?

UK brewer Wadworth has produced a special beer to commemorate the event for nearby St. Mary The Virgin Church in Potterne.

“Divine Ale” is a 5.1% abv dark and bitter porter – “an older style beer in keeping with the great age of the church and ideal for cold winter days and nights at Christmas time.”

The brew was the brainchild of Julian Richards, landlord of The George and Dragon in Potterne and the vicar’s wife Ann Howard.
