Forget the events of the last two weeks, surely the news that she's to get her own beer is the most exciting thing to happen to Theresa May recently?

Ahead of her first Prime Ministers Questions today (20 July 2016) the new PM is being toasted with a new ale made in her honour at two of her local pubs.

The brew, Come What May, has been specially created for the occasion by Star Pubs and Bars, brewer Heineken's pub arm, and will be served in two of its pubs in the constituency where May is MP – The Crown Inn and the Old Swan Uppers in Cookham, Berkshire.

Katie Roberts-Smith, licensee of the latter said: "Our local MP is now the PM, so of course we'll be raising a pint. We hope she'll find time in her busy schedule to pop along and have a drink on the house...perhaps she could test her knowledge with the regulars at our monthly quiz night!"

Political beers have been in vogue recently, with several being made to predict the Brexit vote.
