An ale has been brewed in the town where Prince Harry and Meghan plan to wed next month.
Celebratory UK ale, with an US twist
Harry & Meghan’s Windsor Knot is a traditional Brit pint, with an American twist. The brew is in honour of the nuptials of the royal couple. Harry and Meghan tie the knot at Queen Elizabeth’s Windsor Castle home May 19th.
“With the authenticity of being brewed here in Windsor in the shadow of Windsor Castle, using local ingredients, it has got a fantastic appeal,” said Will Calvert, 60, one of the directors of Windsor and Eton brewery.
According to the makers, the pale ale is made from barley grown in Windsor’s royal farm. It is to represent the groom. They combined that with hops from the West Coast of America, reflecting Meghan’s heritage.
The new brew is actually a sequel. They made Windsor Knot in 2011 to mark the wedding of Prince William – that’s Harry’s elder brother. William married Kate.
