National Trust launches IPA

The National Trust is launching its first branded beer, Viceroy IPA, a 5% beer brewed by the Westerham Brewery in Kent. The triple hopped beer uses hops from Scotney Castle in Kent, which is the trust's last remaining hop garden.
Viceroy is available on draught and in bottle and uses barley grown on land adjoining Uppark, a National Trust property in West Sussex.
"This is truly a first -- a National Trust branded beer made using our own ingredients and with a wonderful story to tell," said the trust's head of agriculture, Rob Macklin.
Viceroy is described as golden, nutty and hoppy. It was inspired by Lord Curzon, the first Marquis of Kedleston, who was a generous donor to the National Trust.
