Who are Liverpool's Magnificent Seven?

Tell us your choice and you could see them all honoured – as Liverpool Organic beers – and the best list will be rewarded handsomely in ale

Published on May 20th 2010.


Who are Liverpool's Magnificent Seven?

CONFIDENTIAL found itself in Bootle, surrounded by bottles, this week, at the HQ of the Liverpool Organic Brewery.

We were pleased to hear that business is flowing in a steady stream for the LC favourite who won the Best Thing in A Glass category in our 2009 Food and Drink Awards, (click here).

with more and more pubs across the city and beyond are clamouring to take casks and bottles of the brew that is true.

The Liverpool Organic Brewery has a range of ales, 24-Carat, Founders Ale, King John's Ale, Porter Liverpool, Liverpool Pale Ale and when its in season, Iron Men. Look out for them.

Now they are launching a range of special brews to celebrate Liverpool heroes of days gone by..

There will be eight in all, the first honour has already gone to William Roscoe, a hero indeed for being instrumental in ending the slave trade. Aptly enough, Roscoe - reformer, poet, historian, lawyer, banker, MP, Unitarian and ‘a true son of Liverpool’ - was born in a pub in Mount Pleasant and right now, just around the corner in the Roscoe Head pub, you can sample this eponymous, lip smacking beer.

That leaves seven heroes to go. Who to pick? Who, from Liverpool's past, is worthy enough to have a beer named after them?

Not quite sure on the final list yet, we were told. Really?

After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, we thought we'd ask the best people qualified to come up with a definitive list: you.

Yes. The Liverpool Organic Brewery is looking for your suggestions on who to honour in hops.

We are asking you to come up with a list of the seven most heroic people from the city's illustrious history to immortalise in beer. Not only that, but the reader who comes up with the definitive winning list will be presented with Liverpool Heroes beer in respectable quantities as a reward.

One thing: The Beatles, any of them, will not form part of the winning list, ditto footballers. Only because it's too obvious. But nor do they have to be stuffy old Victorians.

“We are after bringing back to life the true heroes who have made the city great,” they told us.
