Textile Heritage - on a beer bottle

We shop late on Friday nights when the supermarket is quiet. Last night I found this bottle of beer amongst the packets and tins when I unpacked the bags. Ian had picked it up out of curiosity, opened it and pronounced it good then drew my attention to the label details.
The beer is called Flying Shuttle and the info in the back label states:
This premium ale was brewed as a tribute to the Lancashire Cotton industry. The invention of the" Flying Shuttle" enabled workers to weave faster and transformed textile making into an industry.

Ah, this would go down well with the Laundry King. He can endure many quilt shops or exhibitions if there is a boutique brewery or English pub waiting for him afterwards.

Just what I need, the summer heat is turning me into a useless lump of humanity who drinks lime juice and takes long siestas - flying shuttle will do the trick.
