The heart cheers at the appropriateness of this news:
The service, which begins at 7.30pm, will reflect on the church's past, celebrate its present role and look to the next 750 years. The church choir will be joined by choirs from other local churches at this communion service. After the service, there will be refreshments available including a beer, The Bronescombe Ale, brewed for the occasion by O'Hanlon's Brewery, Whimple. The beer has been named after Bishop Walter Bronescombe who, on the feast of St Andrew in 1259, arrived in Ottery St Mary and dedicated the Church of Sancte Marie de Otery.
There are so many words in the language that have faded from use which, like bridal, reflect a past connection between the Church and the cask. Church ales they were called. Bloggers who are much clever that I am have the details in these things. In this case, we can rely on this post by Martyn the Zythophile entitled "Ale, Churches and Brides"... but I am not sure even he knows the name for a church ale celebrating a 750th.
