Lord of The Rings fan makes miniature Frodo Baggins' home

It's a fairly twee article of the sort you would expect to see in a local paper rather than the Telegraph but there's one thing in this article about a Lord of The Rings fan who has made a miniature hobbit hole that shows it's wasn't written by a fan:

The kitchen is stocked with miniaturised food and utensils and a barrel bearing a longbottom leaf label the ale drunk by the hobbits in the record-breaking films.

Surely even the untrained eye can spot Longbottom Leaf is not a name for ale (how much ale is made from leaves?) but is actually the brand of tobacco they smoke in their pipes. Talk about an elementary mistake! What do you mean I'm sad?
