A limited edition Greene Queen IPA pump clip will appear on the bars of selected pubs around East Anglia from Friday, June 10 to Sunday, June 12, to mark the official royal birthday.

And Bury St Edmunds-based Greene King will also be giving away 90 limited edition bottles of Greene Queen-branded IPA via its Facebook page as part of the commemorative makeover.

Chris Houlton, managing director of Greene King brewing brands, said: “Our limited edition Greene Queen IPA brings together and celebrates three national institutions – quality cask ale, the great British pub and the royal family.

“Greene Queen IPA is our same easy-drinking flagship beer and, with its fitting name, will be a great pint to accompany the celebrations this weekend.”

Among the pubs and bars that will be serving Greene Queen IPA are the Dog and Partridge, the Fox and the Rushbrooke Arms in Bury, the Green Man in Newmarket, the White Hart in Tuddenham St Mary, the Fox & Hounds in Thurston, the Marquis of Cornwallis in Chedburgh, the White Swan in Exning and the Cambridge United Supporters Club in Cambridge.
