Beer launched to commemorate Royal wedding

Channel Islands brewer Liberation Brewery has announced the launch of Meghan’s Sparkle, a beer to toast the May wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Meghan’s Sparkle, 4% abv, is described by Liberation as “a beautifully balanced ale, created from the perfect marriage of British and American hops, with a hint of ginger”.

The copper-coloured beer is brewed with Maris Otter malt to produce an easy drinking beer with a fruity aroma. Meghan’s Sparkle will be available across the UK and Channel Islands from 30 April until the couple’s big day on 19 May

The beer will also be on tap at many of The Liberation Group’s 73 pubs in the Channel Islands and 43 pubs in the West Country. Free trade customers will be able to obtain the beer through Butcombe Brewery.

Several of Liberation’s pubs will also be showing the wedding ceremony live on big screens as the Royal Couple ties the knot at the Chapel in Winsor Castle.

Mark Crowther, chief executive of the Liberation Group said “We’re excited to mark the Royal wedding with a beer fit for a King – or at least a Prince. The combination of American and British hops is a marriage made in heaven. Channel Islanders are proud to be British and will want to raise a glass to the happy couple. Hopefully, this beer WILL prove popular with stag and hen dos as well as those drinking on the day.”
