Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer, has made a special delivery of Royal Wedding Ale to the Horse Guards at Whitehall to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The cask of beer will be enjoyed by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards after completing their royal wedding duties on April 29, and who have recently returned from six months in Afghanistan.

The specially brewed 4.7 per cent abv ale is available from selected Shepherd Neame houses, and pubs throughout the UK.

Royal Wedding Ale is described as: “Full bodied, warming, light in colour, this truly special beer is characterised by a delicious, fragrant, hoppy aroma and palate. A delightful marriage of the finest malts and hops England has to offer.”
