New ale for Kennet & Avon

Published: Friday, 26 March 2010

TO CELEBRATE the 200th anniversary of the Kennet & Avon Canal a new ale has been brewed which will be delivered today (Friday.)

Local family brewers, Wadworth & Co. Ltd, have created a special ale, ‘K&A 200', with the first delivery of this ale taking place today Friday 26 March. The ale will be brought to Devizes Wharf by a Wadworth Horse Drawn Dray, and then loaded onto a restored work boat, the Avon Vale, which will then deliver the ale to a canal side pub, the Bridge Inn at Horton.

The ale will arrive at the pub at around 1pm to be unloaded, with members of the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust, the local MP and representatives from Wadsworths  on hand to then sample the new brew.
