The village of Loose is noted for its stream and numerous fresh-water springs, but on Sunday it was beer that was flowing, not water.
The American Flying Dog Brewery took over The Chequers pub for the afternoon to host a birthday party for celebrity artist Ralph Steadman, who lives in Old Drive, Loose.
Mr Steadman, who was 80, was joined by Maidstone’s other renowned artist Graham Clark and by the novelist and political columnist Will Self, the singer/songwriter Ed Harcourt, the Radio 4 broadcaster Laurie Taylor, the Canadian artist Anita Kunz and the film director Charlie Paul, who directed No Good Reason, the 2012 movie about Mr Steadman’s life that was narrated by Johnny Depp.
The chief executive of Flying Dog, Jim Caruso, was at the event: He said: “In the States, Ralph is a huge name.”
