Roger Daltrey celebrates his 80th birthday!

Who’d have thought that this little fellow, seen here with his mum Irene, would today be celebrating his 80th birthday?

Seems hard to believe, doesn’t it?

So what better way to mark your 80th birthday than having your own beer made for you by your family brewery!

Jamie, Des, Chris and all the crew at Lakedown Brewery, the company run on the Daltrey family farm and fishing lakes, got together and created a special beer exclusively for Roger to celebrate in style. This Lakedown 3.8% RPA is Roger’s favourite American Pale Ale loaded with Mosaic and Idaho 7 hops for a punchy and aromatic finish. But don’t expect to get your hands on a can of this exclusive beer. It was brewed especially for the guv’nor’ for his birthday.

Cheers, Roger! Wishing you all the best for a very happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday Roger. Spent the morning listening to the Shea Stadium show for 1982 released today. What a blast. Why oh why did The Who only perform ‘It’s Hard’ on this tour. Anyway have a great day and see you on 20th March at Royal Albert Hall which also happens to be our 25th Wedding Anniversary. 8th row from front. What a way to celebrate.
