A man named Roy Larner became an unlikely hero of the recent London Bridge attack when he took on terrorists while shouting, “Fuck you I’m Millwall”. Ridiculous.

In honour of this British hero, a Swedish brewery has decided to pay tribute by naming a 5% English bitter after his brave act. It’s called, ‘Fuck you I’m Millwall’. Seems apt.
Here’s what Larner said about the attack:
Like an idiot. I shouted back at them. I thought, ‘I need to take the piss out of these bastards’.
I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘Fuck you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me.
I stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back.
I was on my own against all three of them, that’s why I got hurt so much.
It was just me, trying to grab them with my bare hands and hold on. I was swinging.
I got stabbed and sliced eight times. They got me in my head, chest and both hands. There was blood everywhere.
They were saying, ‘Islam, Islam!’. I said again, ‘Fuck you, I’m Millwall!’ It was the worst thing I could have done as they carried on attacking me.
Luckily, none of the blows were straight at me or I’d be dead.
That really is a true act of bravery and clearly the brewery, Frequency Beer Works near Stockholm, agrees. Co-owner David Mortimer said:
A friend of mine who is a Millwall fan in London sent me a link to an article about Roy and I thought it was an amazing story of his bravery.
When I read it I thought ‘that’s amazing, that really is something special’ so I spoke to the other guys at the brewery and we thought we could stick some money into the Just Giving campaign but that it would be more fun to tell the world about it.
It just feels like it’s one of those stories you want to tell people about because it’s amazing – and it’s also a great name for a beer.
The reaction and feedback we’ve had has been so overwhelming so we are looking at getting the beer over to the UK as soon as possible.
Legends. I have no doubt that when they release a beer called ‘Fuck you I’m Millwall’ in the UK, it will fly off the shelves. Meanwhile, why not contribute to Larner’s Just Giving page? Every little helps.
