Return of the King


Windsor & Eton Brewery have announced news of their new beer to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

Called RETURN OF THE KING, the new beer will be available in 500ml bottles, 440ml cans and in cask at 4.2% ABV. Advance orders are being taken from Tuesday 31th January.

Chairman and co-founder Will Calvert explains the idea for the beer:

“RETURN OF THE KING celebrates King Charles’s lifetime of service to the country and his passionate support of the environment. We wanted to mark the occasion by our very first 100% organic beer brewed here in the heart of Windsor.

We’ve created a beautifully balanced recipe using organic barley from the local Royal Farm and organic English hops”

RETURN OF THE KING takes one of the most iconic and popular photographs of King Charles and gives it a distinctive Windsor & Eton Brewery twist. Renowned London portrait artist, Martin Jessup was commissioned to paint the new king sitting relaxed in ceremonial uniform surrounded by the birds, butterflies, and bees of his beloved British countryside.

New Managing Director, Jon Radford explains where the idea for the name came from:

“People were telling us that one of the most surprising aspects of the new monarchy is how strange it felt to be saying or singing ‘the King’ after more than 70 years of ‘the Queen’. So we are sure that RETURN OF THE KING is something that will strike a chord with people in May when they raise a toast to ‘the king’”

RETURN OF THE KING is the perfect beer to enjoy at the Coronation celebrations being held across the country and locally in Windsor around the special bank holiday weekend in May.
