A Winning Idea

Dorset, the county of my birth, has an amusingly-named river, the Piddle. (A couple of villages take their names from the river; Piddletrenthide has been immortalised in The Meaning of Liff.)

Cashing in on the joke, the Piddle Brewery produces a range of Piddle Beers made using water from the river: Jimmy Riddle, Leg Warmer, and a special edition for the Tank Museum, Little Willie.

Passing another Dorset river, the Win near Winfrith Newburgh, on Saturday, I was struck by an idea: why not use this water for brewing, too, and market the resulting beer as 'Made of Win'?
