English brewers have invented a shellfish flavoured beer. The tipple - called Scallop Stout - is set to be the main attraction at a local scallop festival in Kent.

Stewart Martin of brewer Shepherd Neame said: "There's a hint of smokiness and a slight taste of the sea but no fishiness."

The 3.7 per cent Guinness-like stout is made using traditional methods - but with a handful of scallops thrown in for an hour.

The beer is packed full of Omega 3 fatty acid - derived from fish - which is great for the heart.
