Roger Protz helped with the brew at Chiltern Brewery on 20 March, adding the Challenger hops to a new batch of Bodger’s Barley Wine. A portion of the beer will be bottled and sold as Roger’s Bodger’s Barley Wine.
Roger said: ” I am honoured to be on the label of this luscious and fruity beer. Like me, it will be well aged and released in May.”
