BARNHAM is a village with its own beer as a new ale is launched there this weekend.

After the success of a recent Beer Festival, St Gregory's ale will be launched at the village fete on Sunday.

Brewed by the Red Rat Craft Brewery, the brew was carefully chosen with input from the 150-plus beer enthusiasts who attended the village's first beer festival. Twelve beers were tasted and then rated on colour, aroma, taste and strength.

The information was collated by the brewery and used to create the village's very own beer.

A competition was run to name the beer and it was unanimously decided to name it after the village church of St Gregory.

There will be a cask of beer at the bar and bottles will be on sale to take away, with a special launch promotion.
