Two British Pubs Offer Beer Named After New Prime Minister
Two Heineken-owned British pubs in Cookham, England, which is in Prime Minister Theresa May’s Maidenhead constituency, are toasting the new Prime Minister of the U.K. in a unique way.
The Crown and The Old Swan Uppers, the two pubs, are pouring a golden pale ale named after the Prime Minister called “Come What May.”
Katie Roberts-Smith, licensee of The Old Swan Uppers, said, “Our local MP is now the PM, so of course we’ll be raising a pint,” quoted Beverage Daily.
Lawson Mountstevens, managing director of Star Pubs and Bars, Heineken’s leased pub business, expressed his hope that residents, and perhaps May herself, will come by to enjoy a pint.
“We know Theresa May will be very busy over the coming weeks, but hopefully she’ll still have time for an occasional visit to support her local pubs,” he said.
