The week in pictures

A craft brewery in York was delighted to receive a picture of Dame Judi Dench sampling one of its beers – the Dame Judi Quench.

The beer was made by Brew York in collaboration with local beer bar and shop The House of Trembling Madness.

Managing director of Brew York, Wayne Smith, told db: “We were chatting to the bar manager Geo at a beer festival earlier in the year and decided to brew a beer together,” he said.

“Being two York based businesses, we wanted the name of the beer to reflect something famous form York, so one of the Trembling Madness team came up with the idea of Dame Judi Quench, which we loved.

Smith explained that his business partner, Lee Grabham, who is also the head brewer, once worked with Dench’s nephew, who is a regular at Brew York. He offered to take the cans to Dench, who now lives in Outwood, Surrey, for her to sample.

Her positive reaction has now prompted calls for the beer, which sold out in August, to be rebrewed.
