It’s a well-known fact that the British people are not to be joked with, especially when it comes to their precious, warm, bland ales.
There’s a hidden chapter in their history that has lately resurfaced:
For a short period of time, taverns served a tastier bitter ale, the rare English Very Special Bitter.
It was brewed in accordance with the king’s secret recipe.
The Court found out in the end that the “Very Special” component was, in fact, a Japanese hop. The forbidden Sorachi Ace. Naturally, his head had to be immediately removed, chop chop!
His name was lost throughout history. But we honor and respect such craziness and we hope it was, at least, a Royal Execution.
