As excitement over the royal wedding reaches fever pitch, those who miss out on an invitation will be able to toast the happy couple with a specially-brewed beer.

Kiss Me Kate is being brewed just for the occasion and will be a “British beer through and through”, said its creators from Castle Rock Brewery in Nottingham.

The brewery, formed in 1998, produces seven permanent beers including its award-winning Harvest Pale, but brewers are adding the new tipple to their repertoire to mark the occasion.

Head brewer Adrian Redgrove said Kiss Me Kate would be “elegant, tasteful and British to the core”.

He said: “The recipe is still in the planning stage, I have to give this one very careful thought because it’s obviously a very special beer.

“The plan is it will be a pale beer. The malted barley and hops will be English sourced so it will be a British beer through and through, pale in colour and delicately hopped with a bit of sweetness in there.
