Monty Python's Ale

Most of the crew of Monty Python's Flying Circus will reunite this fall in London to mark the 40th anniversary of the group.

The Independent reported last week that  "four of the main six stars - including Michael Palin and Eric Idle - will be taking part in the musical adaptation of Life Of Brian, called Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)."
The newspaper said that  John Cleese will be  unable to attend the European premiere of the show at the Royal Albert Hall on October 23. The sixth member of the team, Graham Chapman, died in 1989.

There was also a mention in Paste Magazine of  a possible tour by the group in the USA.

England's Black Sheep Brewery put out a beer, Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale, in 1999 to mark the 30th anniversary of the group.

Apparently it is still around.

Readers of the The Beer Advocate did not warm to it, most giving it  C-plus and B- minus grades.

I love comedy of the Python's but have not tasted the beer.

Anybody familiar with it?

Does drinking it  make you say things like " not dead yet?"

Do you start uttering phrases like " Bring me a shubbery!"

Do you automatically know the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
