Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Wedding Beer Brings British and American Hops Together

If you've always wanted to drink like the royals, now is your chance.

In honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming nuptials, the Windsor & Eton Brewery unveiled the couple's official wedding beer, aptly named Harry & Meghan's Windsor Knot. The pale ale, which is brewed from barley grown on Queen Elizabeth II's farm, was crafted with British and American hops, along with a splash of champagne yeast.

Willie Calvert, co-owner of the Windsor & Eaton Brewery, told People on Friday that the beer was created with Harry's and Markle's native countries in mind. "We're using some nice, fruity hops from Yamika in Washington state and some English hops, which are more subtly flavored. English hops tend to be more of a grassy, textured flavor—a bit more like hay—whereas New World hops have more sunlight and are more strongly flavored."

Calvert said the brewery planned to send the couple samples of the blended beer, just as it did for Harry's older brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, when they married back in 2011.

Windsor Knot was only one year into development when William and Middleton married, but the wedding beer was such a big hit with Brits that the brewery decided to continue selling it. "We called it Windsor Knot, which is a bit of a pun really, as the Windsor Knot is a way of wearing a tie, but it also reflected the royal Windsor family tying the knot. It was such a popular beer that we still make it today," Calvert said.

"When it came to this wedding," he added, "it was natural to do a beer for Harry and Meghan too."

The wedding brew will be available to the public as of March 28. Pubs in London and Windsor will sell the beer, but it will also be available at the Royal Farm Shop in Windsor.

U.K. residents will be able to guzzle down Harry & Meghan's Windsor Knot for extended hours on May 19, the day Harry and Meghan tie their own knot. Instead of the usual 11 p.m. cutoff time, bars and pubs across England and Wales were given permission to continue serving alcohol until 1 a.m. that day, according to the BBC. The extension applies to the day after the wedding as well.

That, at least, is news worth raising a pint to.
