Anglian Poacher: real ale for real heroes

Locals at the Lock, Stock and Barrel pub in Crowle, Scunthorpe have named a specially brewed beer after 2 Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment. The Battalion, also known as 'The Poachers', are currently on deployment in Iraq and one of the guys serving out there is Richard Manning, the son of the pub's landlords.
Naming the beer "Anglian Poacher" not only paid tribute to the Battalion but also helped raise funds for the Poachers' benevolent fund as £10 for each barrel broached and 10p for each pint sold will be donated to the appeal.
The Poachers' fund has been set up to provide support and assistance to injured soldiers and their families. Donations to the Fund can also be made through the Battalion's Wristband Appeal on the link below.
