Ah, my favourite tree, the Sorbus torminalis.

I had one at my old house, but it was too big to bring with me!

Yes, the berries are used to flavour beer, the Chequers pubs are named after the tree/berries.
Sorry, not sure how they are used though, sorry.

There was a thread about this tree some months ago so there may have been mention of a recipe.
