Swedish brewery dedicates beer to man who fought London Bridge terrorists


Swedish brewery Frequency Beer Works has launched a new ale as a tribute to Millwall supporter Roy Larner, who single-handedly fought three knife-wielding London Bridge terrorists with his bare hands. 

Earlier this month, 47-year-old Larner was at the Black & Blue restaurant and bar in London when three terrorists began attacking people after mounting the pavement outside in a van.  

Larner told The Sun: "They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, ‘Islam, Islam, Islam’.

"Like an idiot, I shouted back at them. I thought: ‘I need to take the p*** out of these b*******’." 

"I took a few steps towards them and said: ‘F*** you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me."

"Roy Larner single-handedly stepped in against the terrorists, saving countless lives by drawing the attention of the attackers, giving others the chance to run to safety."

Larner was stabbed eight times and rushed to St Thomas’s Hospital, where he had to undergo a surgery as he suffered severe wounds to his head, chest, and fingers.

Frequency Beer Works stated on its website: "We were humbled and impressed to read about Millwall supporter Roy Larner, who single-handedly stepped in against the terrorists in London, shouting 'F*** you, I’m Millwall', saving countless lives by drawing the attention of the attackers, giving others the possibility to run to safety.

"We salute him and have made a special edition of our bitter available in his honour. A portion of the proceedings will be donated to the fund started in his name."

The brewery has created a 5% English bitter in tribute to his bravery.

Frequency expects to distribute the beer in the UK soon.
