Dorset brewer launches virility-boosting beer

Cerne Abbas Brewery in Dorset has launched a limited edition virility-boosting beer called the Watercress Warrior inspired by an ancient symbol of fertility.

Cerne Abbas Brewery’s Watercress Warrior beer

As reported by the Bournemouth Daily Echo, Watercress Warrior is a collaboration between Cerne Abbas Brewery and The Watercress Company.

The 4.5% pilsner is made with hops, watercress seeds and 1,000 litres of spring water taken from the natural springs at The Watercress Company’s farm near Dorchester.

Dubbed a superfood for being rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, watercress is also said to increase the male sex drive.

According to its makers, Watercress Warrior is, “a delightfully hoppy brew with a refreshing citrus bite that contrasts deliciously with the peppery hit of the watercress.”

Thus far, 1,800 500ml bottles of Watercress Warrior have been brewed and are on sale in shops and pubs around Dorset.

Fittingly, the brewery’s logo is the Cerne Abbas Giant – a 180ft tall chalk figure of a naked man branded onto a hill in a field in the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset.

The ancient symbol of fertility is listed as a scheduled monument and the land where he lies is owned by the National Trust.

The Bournemouth Daily Echo reports that couples wanting to conceive have been known to get amorous on top of the giant’s giant manhood.

“Cerne Abbas is one of the first places watercress was grown. There is also of course the famous giant, who we thought was the perfect face of our brew,” James Harper of The Watercress Company told the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

“Watercress is a fabulous health food packed full of vitamins and nutrients that help boost virility. The ale itself is delicious, it’s very fruity with a peppery kick,” he added.

Vic Irvine, head brewer at Cerne Abbas Brewery, added: “We love a challenge and were fascinated by the prospect of a watercress beer.”
