    If this is the beer then then it certainly hasn't been the only thing he has ordered. The brewery has only existed since 1995. Unless they took the name of a beer from an earlier time.

    Website suggests it is limited to central England.

    Could it be a cynical advertising ploy? I bet the codger is only 92.

    Nah, he just looks 92. It's definitely the beer!

    The beer keeps him going and the women keep him young.
