This ale along with Lest... has been brewed by George's Brewery to commemorate the start of the great war, World War 1, August 4th 1914.
A war like no other, lessons were scarred on to the memories of those that witnessed it, very few remain of the soldiers that fought in it, no one could have predicted the sheer horror of that most regretable time with over 15 million dead as a direct result of the conflict making this war the deadliest in the history of our planet.
The pump clip features a passage from the poem The Fallen by Robert Laurence Binyon written in September 1914 and used always at Armistice day services across the globe.

George's Brewery is donating £5 from each and every cask we sell of "Lest..." & "The Fallen" to The Royal British Legion for there continued support of servicemen and women that have fought for our country. We have around 34 casks of each beer so it should be a tidy sum. More on that nearer the event.
I will leave you with the poem DULCE ET DECORUM EST written by Wilfred Owen 1893-1918, quite possibly the greatest ever war poet. It describes most graphically a man dying from gas poisening. For me it gives all the reasons I will ever need to understand why we should never ever forget.
