Eight of the best drinks-related April Fools

Purity Brewing – barging into Birmingham

Midlands craft brewer, Purity Brewing Company, announced that it had purchased a canal boat in Birmingham which it said would help boost its city centre deliveries.

Turning back the clock to a time when the canals were relied upon to transport goods, the new boat is called UBU after one of Purity’s best-selling beers.

Managing director of Purity, Paul Halsey, said: “With more canals than Venice, Birmingham is the perfect city to start delivering to via boat, and we hope to extend this to our other key regions of Bristol and London soon via the Grand Union. If you spot the good ship UBU, post us a picture on social media to win a couple of brewery tour vouchers. Ahoy!”
