Special beer for rugby

A SPECIAL beer to make the Six Nations rugby tournament will be on sale at selected Brakspear pubs.

Jerusalem is an amber “session” ale with a 3.8per cent ABV, which was brewed for the first time last year to honour England winning the annual competition.

It will be served at pubs that will be showing the matches, which begin tomorrow (Saturday). Drinkers will be able to claim one free pint after buying nine and having a collector card stamped.

Brakspear marketing manager Emma Sweet said: “Our pubs are always busy for key rugby fixtures and with hopes high for a second England triumph this year, we’re expecting record numbers of rugby lovers to watch the Six Nations in their local.

“Jerusalem was specially brewed to honour England’s win in 2016 and it is a perfect rugby-watching beer.

“Giving a free pint to customers who buy nine pints from us over the course of the tournament is our way of thanking rugby fans for watching the games in our pubs.”

The following pubs will be taking part in the promotion: The Anchor, Angel on the Bridge, Little Angel, Station House, all Henley; Catherine Wheel, Goring; Chequers, Watlington; Cherry Tree, Stoke Row; Fox & Hounds, Christmas Common; Hare & Hounds, Sonning Common; the Horns, Wargrave; Duke of Wellington, Twyford.
