Hidden away from the flocks of tourists armed with selfie-sticks who traipse around the Tower of London every day, the Beefeaters' private pub is a place where the famous scarlet-clad guards can relax and enjoy a pint of Beefeaters' Bitter, an ale made especially for them by a London brewery. Officially called Yeoman Warders, the 37 Beefeaters live with their families inside the fortified complex which houses the Crown Jewels, glittering symbol of the British monarchy. Beefeaters share their home with close to 3 million visitors a year and spend much of their days conducting tours, answering questions and posing for photographs. But after the daily hubbub fades, they can shed their uniforms and head for a quiet drink at the Yeoman Warders' Club, their own private bar in a discreet corner of the sprawling fortress.
