UK sees launch of Homer's favourite tipple

A beer drank by 'The Simpsons' character Homer has gone on sale in Britain.

The fictional star has been swigging Duff beer during episodes of the US animated sitcom for more than 23 years, and it has now been shipped to Britain for the first time to coincide with the programme's 500th episode.

The brewers stated: "The Legendary Duff Beer is a premium German pilsner that poses a crisp, light refreshing taste along with iconic packaging.

"The product has certainly fulfilled its namesake in becoming a modern day legend, developing a cult following across the world."

The 4.7 per cent lager can be bought online in either bottles or cans.
