Brewer Chris Hemming (l) is struggling to keep up with orders in Oisin's pub
A micro-brewery in Stroud has created a beer in honour of the visit of Pope Benedict XVI.
The real ale, called Benedict's Brew, is being produced by the Hetty Peggler Brewery at Nailsworth's The Village Inn.
"We were asked to brew a beer by Father David in Stroud for his One Parish Mass, and it proved a huge success," said Oisin Hawes, landlord of The Village Inn.
"As the Pope is coming this year he said he'd like to call it Benedict's Brew in honour of the visit, so that's how it came about."
It's a light and fruity ale which brewer Chris Hemming described as "something easy going, nothing too heavy".
The brew takes two weeks to produce before being bottled at Hetty Pegler's Brewery.
It is then left to sit for two weeks before being sold in the pub where Oisin, originally from Dublin, has been landlord for four years.
But it's not just the Stroud Valleys where the ale is being praised, word has reached a global audience.
"Some Texans phoned up because they saw it on the Bishop's [Clifton Diocese] website," added Oisin.
"They're actually coming over for the Papal visit and so they've said they're going to buy some souvenir bottles to take home."
