Staffordshire Hoard beer is launched

A local brewery has created a new beer to celebrate the haul of Anglo-Saxon gold discovered in a Staffordshire field.

The Backyard Brewhouse decided to brew The Hoard Ale to mark the discovery of the treasure in July.

Head Brewer Austen Morgan told StaffsLive the brewery was just a few hundred yards from where the gold was found buried by a man doing metal detecting this summer.
