Prince George Alexander Louis may only be a few days old, but the youngest heir to the throne already has a beer in his honor.
Dubbed the “Heir Raiser,” the special brew from England’s McMullens Brewery has been described by the Drinks Business as a “light-colored, crisp refreshing pint with a light, hoppy finish.” The ale has a 3.8 percent ABV alcohol and is currently being sold at the Duchess of Cambridge Pub opposite Windsor Castle.
Frances McMullen, the sales director for the brewery told the beer website the company had been anticipating the birth of the royal heir for quite some time. However, they’re not the first to “hop” on the hype surrounding royal events. A rival English brewery, Castle Rock, presented its home country with a “Kiss Me Kate” pale ale not long before the royal wedding.
English fans of the Heir Raiser (Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson was spotted sipping the brew) can anticipate future royal milestones, and inevitably a few new ales on the market.
