A FORMER England and British Lions rugby union player was the guest of honour at the opening of a brewery in a village near Rugby.

Double grand slam-winner Dean Richards attended the official opening of Wood Farm Brewery in Monks Kirby on Friday.

Wood Farm Brewing Company Ltd was formed in 2010.

The founders’ idea was to create a micro brewery that provides ales with names related to the game of rugby.

The buildings at Wood Farm in Coal Pit Lane have been partly converted to produce the ales and there is a visitors centre as well as a brewery tap.
