Mi­cro­brewer’s spe­cial mon­ster ale for Green Fes­ti­val

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Business Telegraph -

Cas­tor’s Ales’ Dun­can Vessey gave his back­ing to Peter­bor­ough’s Green Fes­ti­val last week with a spe­cial brew for the oc­ca­sion - Flood Mon­ster. Cur­rently avail­able at the Peter­bor­ough Beer Fes­ti­val which be­gan on Tues­day, Dun­can launched Flood Mon­ster in the Cathe­dral grounds as part of the ‘Fu­ture Flood­lands’ in­stal­la­tion of live the­atre and poetry, light pro­jec­tions, art­work and sculp­ture. Dun­can ex­plained: “The artist James Tovey, who worked on Fu­ture Flood­lands, usu­ally dis­plays his work in our beer tent and any sculp­tures he has avail­able out­side the tent, thus pro­mot­ing the ‘real art, real ale’ theme.” The new ale ‘Flood Mon­ster’ was named af­ter James’ in­stal­la­tion of the Midgard Ser­pent (Jor­mungand or world ser­pent). The beer is an unusual cre­ation in that it is malty and cop­per coloured and con­tained fresh lemons in abun­dance, and was then lat­terly in­fused with bog myr­tle as a one-off spe­cial for the event.
