Beer ready and waiting for swim challengers

COMMEMORATIVE beers for finishers of a swim taking place in Henley have been brewed

COMMEMORATIVE beers for finishers of a swim taking place in Henley have been brewed.

About 600 pints of Two Bells was put into brown glass bottles on Tuesday at the Brakspear micro-brewery in Bell Street.

One will be given to each finisher in the Club to Pub swim on Saturday, which has been part of the Henley Swim series since 2010.

Participants will start at Henley Rowing Club and swim upstream to Marsh Lock before turning round and swimming downstream, ending at the Angel on the Bridge in Thames Side.


It is called Two Bells as the aim is to complete the course between the 7pm and 8pm chimes of the bells at St Mary’s Church in Hart Street.

All finishers will receive a bottle of the 3.7 per cent golden ale and a medal which doubles as a bottle opener.

Henley Swim co-founder Jeremy Laming said: “This is the third year we have been working with Brakspear. The focus is creating a strong, community event.”
