Beers will mark the centenary of the start of the First World War.

Family firm Maldon Brewing Company is launching one ale a month, all connected to Stow Maries Aerodrome.

The airfield was originally home to the 37 (home defence) Squadron, Royal Flying Corps, which have inspired February's traditional dark brown malty ale.

Others coming up include Mascot, dedicated to the dogs who were popular mascots during the war and occasionally had their own jackets.

The commemorative beers will be brewed once a month in one-off batches and on sale from the brewery shop at Blue Boar Stable Yard in Silver Street, Maldon, and on draught from selected pubs.
