Beatles star brews beers on his East Sussex estate using hops from the land
SIR Paul McCartney is brewing his own beer using hops from his estate.
The Beatles legend, 73, named the ale Old Stinkhorn after a phallic-shaped mushroom which also grows on his farm.
The concoction is bottled on his land in East Sussex and given as gifts to colleagues and friends.
Fran Healy, 42, of the band Travis has received regular crates since the pair worked together on his solo album in 2010.
He said: “A box turns up every year. It’s really nice.”
Macca took up his secret home-brewing hobby several years ago.
A source close to the star said: “Paul has been making the beer for a while now. It’s delicious.”
