Bit strange but I found this in:

Brewing and Distilling International Magazine April Edition

Brit Actor's New Dream

Simon MacCorkindale Discuss' his Newest Venture

Simon MacCorkindale, better know for his acting skills in BBC One's Casualty is branching out to brew his own brand of Ale.

MacCorkindale, 55, who owns a Stud farm in Exmoor with actress wife Susan George has been using their land to grow the crops he needs to make his own very special brew. 'We've have the stud farm, but that tends to be Susie's baby,' discusses Simon 'It's got to the point where it's self sustainable, running on it's own steam. So I felt it was time for me to explore other avenues on my own. This project, although it's very demanding, allows me to concentrate on acting, directing and producing which is my first passion, but now I also have this as, a very ambitious, hobby.'

MacCorkindale's Casualty character, Harry Harper, is tee-total, so this revelation might come as a surprise to fans 'Well I've been brewing this ale for years for personal use and in recent years selling to local business, and now I feel I want to explore it from a more commercial perspective. I see it as a challenge. The horse breeding has taken off in a huge way and has become award wining and I'm so proud of Susie for achieving that. Now it's time to see what I can achieve that's separate from acting and the horses.'

Simon's ale should be hitting shops around the time we go to print so look out for MacCorkind brand ale in your local supermarket this spring. (Editor - MacCorkind hits shops 01/04/2007)

Fantastic I love a good ale, I look forward to trying it. :)

Hope it's not going to be like Shepherd & Neame's stuff though, a local brewery.....

The saying goes like this...
"I thought the bottom had fallen out of my world till I discovered Shepherd & Neame, then the world fell out my bottom!!"

I'd be a fool not to buy some, even though I don't like ale, just to have it for a sovenier? :wink:
