Llan Brewery's "perfect" new beer

The Daily Post is repoorting that a brewery is confident it has finally concocted the perfect pint.
The report says:
"Award-winning Llangollen Brewery has created a new beer, called Holy Grail Ale.
The beverage has been inspired by a local legend involving the great Cistercian abbey of Valle Crucis and Dinas Bran Castle, on the hilltop towering over the town.
According to the story, the castle is the final resting place for the Holy Grail, the cup that Christ drank from at the Last Supper, and there is a tunnel all the way down to the abbey below.
Holy Grail Ale will be launched at Hamper Llangollen 2012, the annual food and drink festival in October.
The idea for the drink came to head brewer Ynyr Jeffreys-Evans came after reading a book called The Keys to Avalon, by author and historian Steve Blake.
Ynyr is in partnership with his cousin, Steven Evans, who has been the landlord of the Abbey Grange Hotel for more than 25 years.
He said: “We started the brewery, based next door to the hotel, about five years ago.
“It's got to the point where we need to increase the capacity again, so this October we’ll be going four times bigger to cope with demand.”
