A COUPLE who celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary with a 50-year-old bottle of Worthington’s Ale have said it was worth the wait.

Trevor and Glenys Scott-Worthington were presented with a bottle of Worthington’s India Pale Ale when they tied the knot in 1963, because they shared the same name as the brand.

After keeping it safe for five decades, the Balsall Common couple finally cracked open the bottle last Sunday, September 22, as part of their anniversary celebrations at Nailcote Hall Hotel, near Berkswell.

And they weren’t disappointed.

“We drank it and honest to God it was perfect. Trevor and I, plus our guests, thought it was wonderful,” said Glenys, aged 71.

“It caused quite a stir opening it,” added Trevor, 72.

“We had a problem opening the bottle and bent one bottle opener in half before we could get it open.

“Several people had a drink of it and they couldn’t believe it was 50-years-old.”
