‘Cecil’s Revenge’: Norwich pub commemorates famous lion by naming a new beer after him

A pub in Norwich has come up with a novel way to commemorate the life of Cecil, the lion killed by a trophy hunter in Zimbabwe… by naming their new beer after the animal.

When The Fat Cat pub in Norwich asked its customers on Facebook to come up with a name for their new 5.6% hoppy beer, the name ‘Cecil’s Revenge’ was suggested in reference to the popular and now deceased lion.

The pub loved the name, and is now running a competition, also via its Facebook page, to design the pump clip for the beer, which is due to be released this week.
