The East Anglican Daily Times of England reports that Bartrams Brewery, near Bury St. Edmunds, has come up with a brew with the longest known name in the world:
The stout is called “Comrade Bill Bartrams Egalitarian Anti-Imperialist Soviet Stout.”
Bartrams began business in 1999. The Comrade Bill won a silver medal in the regional finals of England's Society of Independent Brewers (S.I.B.A.) competition for its cask version and its bottled version won a gold medal. In the National S.I.B.A. finals, Comrade Bill won a gold and was declared "Best Bottled Beer in the Country."
Despite the honors, one suspects it might be difficult to order it if you've had a few too many.
