>monastic tradition by producing its own beer and has found modern
>visitors as enthusiastic as their medieval counterparts. The
>monks of Chester, in northern England, used to produce beer for
>themselves and for pilgrims to the shrine of St Werburg, a
>7th-century abbess to whom were ascribed many miracles. Now
>Chester Cathedral has launched Chester Pilgrim Ale, a strong (5
>per cent alcohol by volume, or ABV) bottled beer. Revenue from
>the venture will help the authorities to keep admission to the
>cathedral free to visitors.
