A collaboration between Dubbo’s Old Bank Bar and Restaurant and a brew house in the Hunter Valley has lead to the perfect marriage of a new beer that pays homage to Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s upcoming visit to the city.
The beer was brewed in collaboration with the the Dubbo bar and Hope Estate.
There are only 100 cases available and they can only be brought in Dubbo, with a very limited supply of cans available at the Westside Hotel.
Old Bank Restaurant and Bar licensee Ryan Mackintosh said Royalists have been ringing him up looking for cases.
“It’s in high demand. It’s the only beer brewed in Australia for their visit to Australia,” he said.

The beer, which is called Dubbo Royale, is a mix of lager which honours Harry’s English heritage and three hops - Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe - from the USA West Coast where Meagan is from.
“It’s like a marriage in a beer can,” Mr Mackintosh said.
“It’s our tribute to their upcoming visit to Dubbo.”
Mr Mackintosh said they were very proud that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were coming to the city.
“Dubbo has got big heritage of (Royal) visits, so we’re proud they’re dropping in,” he said.
As well as showing their excitement to the upcoming Royal visit, Mr Mackintosh and Hope Estate also wanted to throw their support behind the local drought stricken community.
For every Dubbo Royal beer sold, $1 will be go to farmers aid, Mr Mackintosh said, with Hope Estate matching that $1.
