'Kiss Me Kate' Beer

As Britain gets ready to cheer a royal wedding, the Castle Rock Brewery in Nottingham is preparing a toast of its own. In February its master brewer Adrian Redgrove announced the outfit had plans to brew "Kiss Me Kate," a pale beer that will be "elegant, tasteful and British to the core," and well balanced with "some hops, some bitterness and sweetness coming through." The commemorative tipple becomes available in April — on tap and in a limited-edition collection of 100 bottles. Assuming it's as tasteful as its inspiration, the drink should be a delight.
