New beer coincides with new Netflix documentary

The Duke of Sussex’s namesake pub in Chiswick has created a beer in his honour, coinciding with the release of the hotly anticipated Netflix documentary in which Harry and Meghan discuss giving up their royal roles.

Staff at the Duke of Sussex on South Parade say its new ‘Harry’s Bitter’, a rebranding of its original house ale, is already popular with customers.

Dark amber in colour, the pint has a creamy head and has an ABV of 3.9%. The badge on the pump is  an orangey-red, white and blue with a picture of a bearded Harry coloured in the orangey-red colour. It promisees “a royally good tipple”.

The Duke of Sussex is part of the Metropolitan Pub Company which is ultimately owned by Greene King. The pub chain were keen to point out the beer is the pub’s initiative and not theirs.

A Greene King spokesperson said:

“It was a decision by the Duke of Sussex pub to create that name and label for the beer, so that decision wasn’t something Greene King brewery was involved in, so this is the only pub you’ll find it in.”
