Blessed Art Thou


The winning ‘Ale Mary’ as it might look on shelves

The votes are in.

Last week –  with a pair of tickets to the second White Hag Hagstravaganza international brewing festival in Sligo on offer – we asked you to name your own beer.

You entered in your chugging dozens.

But there could be only one left standing.

Broadsheet commenter H’s named tipple ‘Ale Mary‘ (above) poured suds over rivals such as ‘Sweet Mildred’s Sinful Revenge‘ (nominated by Mildred St Meadowlark), ‘Witches Armpit’ (Edalicious) and ‘Beardy McDitchscoop’s Amazing Overly-Hopped Pontificating Headache Elixer‘ (Kolmo) to secure first place.

H’ and a pal will join thousands of crafty booze hounds descending on The White Hag brewerey, Ballymote, County Sligo on  July 28

Thanks all.

      Awwwwwww. I remember thinking that when I grew up I’d kiss my husband under water in a swimming pool like Mr & Mrs H used to do in the opening credits.

        Similarly, I had rather hoped I’d grow to look more like Jonathan Hart than Max the butler but what can you do? :)

    3 Ale Marys and don’t sin again. Next time it’ll be a pilgrimage to Lough Derg in yer bare feet. Is there a Bare Feet craft ale yet?

    Wow, I was away on a work junket last week and somehow missed this! Thanks for all the congrats guys!!
    And as I am Mrs rather than Mr H, thanks for the compliment Bertie ;-)
