XJS – a car and bar star
Article date: 11 Apr 2011

A special beer was on sale at two Coventry pubs, to mark the special anniversary of an iconic car made in the city.

The real ale, named XJS Jag, was produced to mark 50 years since the production of the Jaguar XJS car in Coventry.

The beer, brewed by West Midlands-based Sadler’s was available at The Flying Standard and The Earl of Mercia.

Pub shift managers Shaun Banks (The Flying Standard) and Nick Ferrar (The Earl of Mercia) visited Sadler’s Brewery to help with the beer-brewing process.

The Flying Standard, located just 300 yards from Coventry Transport Museum, marked the occasion by having Jaguar XJS cars parked outside of the pub for customers to see.
