Staffordshire Brewer Celebrates Royal Engagement with Limited Edition Special Ale

19th November 2010


A Staffordshire brewer is raising a glass to the Royal engagement this weekend with its newly named William Wins-Her special ale.

Quartz appealed for a wedding inspired name for the beer on its Facebook and Twitter pages after the Royal announcement was made earlier this week.

Winner Anna Hewitt, was one of hundreds of people who suggested names for the special edition beer via the social networking sites.

She will receive a five litre mini cask of the beer, which is brewed at the Quartz Kings Bromley brewery.

Quartz master brewer Julia Barnett said Anna's winning entry was chosen because it immediately stood out from other entries due to its originality.

"It was a really tough decision to choose the winning name as we had some fantastic suggestions from both Facebook and Twitter," she said.

"We were delighted with the level of response and the amount of thought people had put into their suggestions, considering they only had twenty four hours to enter."

William Wins-Her is a 5.2%, full bodied, hoppy beer and will be available to buy this weekend from the Quartz shop at the Heart of the Country Village, just off the A38 in Lichfield.
