Everyone's favourite priests have had a beer named after them

Seven priests thrown out of a pub after being mistaken for a fancy dress stag party have had a beer named after them.

Red-faced brewery chiefs have renamed their popular 'Rev James' ale the 'Thirsty Priests' as an apology to the men of cloth.

It also has a slogan, which reads: 'Saving souls and satisfying thirsts'.

The Roman Catholic priests, wearing long black robes and dog collars, walked into the pub to celebrate Father Peter McClaren being ordained.

The puzzled priests were told it was the Cardiff pub's policy not to grant entry to fancy dress parties or stag dos in case they caused trouble.

The priests had popped into the The City Arms next to the Principality Stadium to toast Father Peter being ordained at the Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral of St Davids.

They were later invited back in after bar managers realised their blunder.
