T&R Theakston toasts King Charles III with new coronation beer

Family run brewery, T&R Theakston is raising a pint in celebration of the seventh coronation in its almost 200-year history with the launch of a special edition beer, brewed in honour of His Majesty King Charles III.

Crowning Glory, a 4.2% ABV speciality regal gold beer, has been crafted using a grist of Britain’s finest Pale and Crystal malt to give a gloriously robust character. The beer features a honeyed, blackcurrant sweetness which is perfectly balanced by premium English hops, which provide subtle citrussy spiced cedar overtones.

The beer continues the brewery’s tradition of creating limited edition ales to celebrate Royal occasions. It joins a distinguished lineage including Celebration Ale which marked Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee in 1977 and most recently, Royal Salute which commemorated the Diamond and Platinum Jubilees in 2012 and 2022.

Simon Theakston, joint managing director at Theakston Brewery, said: “As a brewery we’re immensely proud of our almost 200-year heritage and it’s fascinating to consider that as a business we have been witness to nine monarchs and seven coronations. It’s only right we continue the honourable tradition of celebrating these key historic moments for our country by creating a special beer to mark the coronation of King Charles III on 6th May.”

In addition to being available to pubs across the UK, Theakston is also creating a limited-edition bottle run of the beer, which will be available to purchase from the brewery’s Visitor Centre in Masham and its online store.
