Beer is 'watered' down to palace.

VILLAGERS got a chance to sample a royal tipple when the Golden Jubilee Royal Ales narrowboat stopped at the canalside in Braunston on its way to London.

Coors Brewers is delivering the ales to Buckingham Palace next month from its brewery in Burton-on-Trent.

On Wednesday the narrowboat Ibex, on its way south, stopped off at The Admiral Nelson pub.

Landlord Bruce Paterson said he was pleased with the turnout of local drinkers, who enjoyed the beers.

He said: "Quite a few people came down, there was a good atmosphere and everybody enjoyed playing some traditional Victorian games, which were brought along on the narrowboat."

The Queen and Prince Philip mashed in the two new Royal brews, the Queen's and Duke's Ales - a long-held tradition - when they visited the Museum of Brewing, owned by Coors, in Burton-on-Trent, in July.

The ales are to be delivered by a horse-drawn dray from Camden Lock down the Mall to Buckingham Palace on October 4.
