All of our staff are unpaid volunteers who have given up their time and effort to ensure you enjoy the vast range of beers, ciders, perries and wines, including several new and unknown brews. Some of the beers have been specially brewed for the festival, including a ‘we done it’ brewed by our own cellar team at local brewery Hopshackle in Market Deeping. Look for the ‘Lone Star’ with its Texas connections. Due to last years festival being somewhat of a washout we have retained the basic layout of the festival marquees, as we would like to get a better opinion if we are blessed with some decent weather (surely we’re due one good year). We have though listened to some of the comments made by visitors last year. The internal features have been moved around in some areas. The Cider Bar has been moved to the marquee nearer to the music tent. The Wine Bar, Shop and Soft Drinks have all been moved to the first marquee. The Information and Membership are in a new position as you enter the festival. Games and Tombola have been nudged along a wee bit. Finally to save your weary legs we have introduced a smaller bar (Bar Five) at the gable end of the music tent. This will stock a limited range of beers, ciders and wines for the music aficionados to save them hiking back to the main bars. This bar will only be open during the live bands performances in the evening. Within this programme is a full list of the live bands performing at this year’s festival. Although we have reached our 34th year of holding the festival, CAMRA as one of the most successful consumers’ organisations ever, is this year celebrating their 40th year of conception. Earlier this

year I was asked during a live radio broadcast “well you seem to have done it” by the presenter. He was of course referring to the successful revival and actual increase of real ale throughout the land. The old adage we may have won a battle but we’ve not won the war sprang to mind. Real ale can still survive as a major quality drink for the discerning drinker. The one dark cloud is we are losing the very places where we like to drink it – our pubs. I won’t go into the various factors that are why so many pubs are disappearing; most of you already know the main reasons. In looking forward to the next ten, twenty or even forty years how much of this great British Institution will still be around. So whilst you’re enjoying the range of drinks at the festival remember that during the other eleven months and three weeks of the year, there are a great many pubs who are struggling to survive against unfair competition, increased taxes and restrictive practices. Without your support it’s a case of ‘use it or lose it’. Do enjoy your visit to this year’s Beer Festival and show your appreciation to our band of volunteers who do their best to make your visit a pleasant one. One last note, please remember that the admission price to the festival includes the cost of hiring a glass whether you need one or not! If you don’t require a glass the token (value £3) can be exchanged as part payment for any of the drinks available. You can still get a full refund of the £3 by returning your glass when you leave.

t’s here again and as usual it’s come around faster than expected. Anyway, welcome to the Bands Listing for the 34th Peterborough CAMRA Beer Festival. Thanks to everyone who has contacted me requesting a gig and sorry that we can’t fit you all in but please do keep trying. Next year is completely blank as yet. On the Saturday afternoon this year we are having a selection of local bands playing. We wish we could have more but there are only so many hours available. Please take time to listen to them – they may well be the stars of the future.

i

in Peterborough, they are singer/songwriter John Quinn (vocals and guitar), Paul Blant (drums and backing vocals), John Dalton (guitar) and Lou Speed (Bass). The band's biggest influences include the likes of the Beatles, the Who, Paul Weller, Oasis and Proud Mary, amongst others. Signed to IAMJ Records, they have just finished putting the final touches to their forthcoming album, Never Mind Tomorrow, which is due for release at the end of the year and produced by Matt Lawrence (Mumford and Sons, Keane, Ellie Goulding). The band’s first single, She's my Rock 'N' Roll, will be available at the end of August.  A recent review described the band as being “Visually as stylish as they are sonically”  www.myspace.com/thefleetingminds

Touchstone Expected on stage 9:15 – 10:45 Rob Cottingham and Adam J Hodgson formed this five-piece prog/rock/alternative influenced band in 2003. Paul Moorghen joined on bass in 2006, Kim Seviour joined on vocals in April 2007 and Henry Rogers joined on drums in June 2010 to complete the line-up. With two successful albums already behind them, their latest album, Wintercoast, was recorded and mixed at Outhouse during February-March 2009. Oscar-winning actor, Jeremy Irons, also features as a very special guest performing the prelude narration. The album was launched at the Rights of Spring festival in Philadelphia in May 2009 and was featured in Classic Rock magazine June 2009. A new album is planned for Oct 2011 with a UK, European and USA tours being planned for 2011. A major signing is in the planning stage. www.touchstonemusic.co.uk

THURSDAY 25TH TUESDAY 23RD

WEDNESDAY 24TH

The Malingerers

Lime Shark

Expected on stage 8:50 – 9:35 and 9:55 – 10:45 The Malingerers are a five piece old time band playing original songs clearly influenced from a melting pot of traditional country, blues and rock’n’roll (Hank Williams, Merle Travis, Leadbelly, Woodie Guthrie etc.) but as you’d expect, combined with a warped sense of humour and history!

Expected on stage 8:15 – 9:15 Lime Shark are a four piece rock outfit with a progressive edge, based in South Lincolnshire and consist of ex Canis Major guitarist and founder member Tony Bodimead on vocals and guitar, Paul ‘Wizbat’ Watson on bass, Tim Myers on rhythm guitar and vocals and Matt Cope on drums.

After a year of touring and refining their songs the Malingerers have now committed their unique sound to tape culminating in an eclectic, strange yet familiar collection of new recordings ready to be unleashed. www.themalingerers.co.uk

The band has been in existence for seven years and has supported the likes of Wishbone Ash, Waysted (Pete Way ex-UFO) and Tokyo Dragons to name but a few. The band has performed at various open air festivals as well as theatre and club gigs all around the UK. Lime Shark is also establishing fans in Brazil, Germany, Italy and the USA, where their music and videos are creating a lot of interest. www.limeshark.com

The Fleeting Minds Expected on stage 9:45 – 10:45 The Fleeting Minds are an alternative/rock/postBritpop band formed in November 2009. Based 08 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

The Vow Expected on stage 7:30 – 9:00 The Vow are a three piece Alt-Rock/Powerpop band first formed in Peterborough, England in the late 90’s by vocalist and guitarist Paul Cummins and bassist Rich Mackman. The pair were introduced to Steve Farmer, who lived in the nearby town of Oundle, a phenomenal drummer whose rambunctious enthusiasm completed the line-up and cemented an astonishingly powerful union that continues to this day. The band have picked up hundreds of rave fanzine reviews and glowing local press on a regular basis, various support slots (with Midget, China Drum, My Vitriol, and bizarrely enough, ex Jimi Hendrix bassist Noel Redding). The decision in early 2007 to return to playing live and recording for the Vow has so far yielded a brand new Seven Track EP, “Cage Breaking”, released in January 2010 and a plethora of other new songs. www.myspace.com/thevowareback

FRIDAY 26TH

Filthy Lucre Expected on stage 7:30 – 9:00 Filthy Lucre is the most authentic sounding tribute to the music of the Sex Pistols you will ever hear. Formed in December 2008, the band features the talents of four experienced Peterborough musicians united in their love of seventies Punk and the Pistols, and well versed in the art of creating a blistering sounding and visually exciting live performance that has already garnered them a sizable following and mailing list. The Filthy Lucre guys have systematically and methodically learned 28 Sex Pistols songs. Every vocal inflection, drum fill and guitar dynamic is there, blending together the rawness of a Pistols live performance along with the sound of the original studio recordings, making Filthy Lucre a tight and ferocious live band. www.myspace.com/filthylucreband Continued overleaf > Peterborough Beer Festival 2011 09


Festival Live Entertainment - continued

Festival Live Entertainment - continued will perform an unplugged set. “The Beer Festival is such a great place to see the people you only ever see at the Beer Festival” says singer Richard Young. Expect to hear pared down versions from the latest album “inside colour”, currently doing the business for them here and in the US. www.shakehandseric.com

The Hamsters Expected on stage 9:15 – 10:45 From the hinterlands of the Thames River Delta come the Hamsters. Now in their twenty-fourth and final year, having performed 4,500 concerts and with a national mailing list exceeding 20,000, the Hamsters are established as the UK’s premier blues-rock attraction. The Hamsters have been voted one of the UK‘s best unsigned bands by Kerrang magazine. Even BBC’s Top Gear magazine recognises the band as the UK’s hardest working, and featured them in an article on in-car entertainment; the Hamsters being the ideal people to ask as they’re always traveling somewhere. All good things come to an end and this is the final tour from our friendly rodents who will disband in April 2012. Do not miss this last opportunity to see these guys perform their 100 mph show in your backyard. Hamster la vista. Baby!!! www.thehamsters.co.uk

SATURDAY 27TH

Retrolux Expected on stage 8:00 – 9:00 Retrolux are a classic rock trio based in Peterborough. Their material ranges from 70’s bands such as Cream, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Who, through to ZZ Top and the Foo Fighters, and is played with passion, keeping the band very busy at pubs and festivals over the last seven years. Ian Graham (guitar & vocals) and Dave Colton (bass & vocals), put Retrolux together to ‘have a little fun!” and along with drummer ‘Fozzy’ Dixon, they have never looked back!” Their sets are regularly enhanced by the addition on some songs of violin (Kat Moore) and harmonica (Chris Goodwin). www.retrolux.co.uk

Fallen Breaks Letz Zep Expected on stage 9:15 – 10:45 Letz Zep are rated as the most popular and top rated, Led Zeppelin tribute act in the UK today, by the authoritative Ticketmaster organisation and are critically acclaimed as the leading tribute to the music of Led Zeppelin and baby they ain’t foolin' . Even legendary Zep front man Robert Plant commented it was like watching himself onstage after he came to a Letz Zep concert. His comment in Q Magazine in an interview was, “I walked in, I saw me”. Letz Zep are the most successful and best known tribute act to Led Zeppelin, having been featured on BBC1, BBC2 and ITV1. The band had a full page feature in Classic Rock magazine. They also received a glowing full page review in Kerrang! mgazine. Letz Zep have also been reviewed in the Sunday Times by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson. He said of the band "If you closed your eyes you really could imagine that it was Plant and Page up there. And if you opened them again the illusion didn't really go away”. www.letzzep.com

SATURDAY 27TH - AFTERNOON

PBF Supporting Local Bands

Shake Hands Eric Expected on stage 14:00 – 14:45 Shake Hands Eric return to this year’s Festival with their deceptively simple acoustic pop and 10 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

Expected on stage 15:00 – 15:45 Having spent the whole of last winter buried in Revenant Studio with producer James Pepper recording their debut album, Fallen Breaks make a welcome return to this year’s line-up. Comprised of David Smith (lead vocals/guitar), Rob Bull (bass) and John Wright (drums) this three-piece has been compared to Biffy Clyro / Foo Fighters with ELO arrangements - powerful dynamic and accomplished. They are currently promoting their album, ‘Cause & Effect ‘, which is available from the band and on iTunes. http://fallenbreaks.com

Bodom. The band has a very professional live stage act with a huge wall of sound and energetic stage show. Awake recorded their third album this year. An album teaser ‘Bleed from you’ was released for radio play and magazine reviews where it was received with huge praise. This earned the band an hour long live session on BBC Cambridgeshire. Awake have now been put forward for air play on Radio One. Midlands Rocks said, “This is an impressive master class in all things ‘melodic’, ‘symphonic’ and hard rock. A song that soars to the skies and takes us all on the ride of our lives.” The album will be released by Lion Music later this year. As the Magnum bass player, Al Barrow states, “Awake. . . A force to be reckoned with when the stage lights go on and these guys do what they do best. Play it live, play it loud, the only way!” http://www.myspace.com/awakeuk Mike Lane

Smokescreen Expected on stage 16:05 – 16:50 Formed in the fall of 2001, Smokescreen have played more than 200 gigs all over the UK, alongside the likes of Prong, Raging Speedhorn, Stuck Mojo and Breed 77. With a full length live DVD, 3 EP's and a brand new full length album under their belt, the band are working on their 10th anniversary DVD and are set to launch a monster set at the beer festival this year as part of their summer 'Human Condition Tour' along with a whole new line of merchandise. Think Pantera mixed with Black Sabbath! www.smokescreenweb.co.uk

Awake Expected on stage 17:10 – 18:10 The band, then called Humanity, was formed in Cambridge in 2000. 11 years later Awake have played a series of very high profile gigs with the likes of Evergrey, Breed 77, DragonForce, Blaze Bayley, Magnum, Jeff Scott Sotto and Children of Peterborough Beer Festival 2011 11

Have Fun at the Festival

HAVE FUN AT THE FESTIVAL! e all hope that your visit to the Beer Festival this year will be a memorable one. Remember without your support the festival could not take place, and the chance to sample some of the excellent brews on offer would be lost.

W

Please try and imagine the festival marquees as one giant pub. Of course as with all pubs there are certain rules we have to comply with. The times of opening are published in the programme and the marquees are completely non-smoking. Accompanied children are allowed in the bar marquees but please keep them away from the bar serveries. And remember that it is against the law to drink alcohol on site if you are under 18. You will need to buy a glass before you start. If it gets too sticky or you want to change glass sizes just take it back to the glasses counter and exchange it. The Beer Festival serves all beer, cider and wine in oversized glasses with government stamped line measured markings to ensure that you, the customer, gets a full measure in your glass. Please be careful if you put your glass down on a table, on the grass or anywhere that it could be knocked over and broken. If such an event does occur please inform a member of staff or security that there is broken glass. On no account attempt to pick up the pieces yourself. We have staff with the proper equipment to retrieve it safely. Do not grind it into the grass! Other events take place on this site after we have finished.

Be careful not to leave your glass unattended. Remember – You paid for it! To ensure you enjoy the festival at all times we advise you to start off with some light beers, say a mild or low gravity ale, then on to something a bit stronger. Starting off with the strongest beers on the menu means your taste buds get no chance to enjoy the different flavours that the various brews offer. As with any other pub we do have the right to eject any person who we feel is a threat to other customers or our staff. Thankfully this is a very rare occurrence. Also remember that, just like other pubs, you are not allowed to drink your own alcohol on site and illegal drugs are totally banned and their use will result in a call to the police. Finally let me remind you of the dedicated staff who are serving you at the festival. Every one of them is an unpaid volunteer, so please be patient at busy times. The person serving you may well have been on duty for the best part of the day, or the whole week and are naturally starting to flag a bit! You can help these people by joining CAMRA and offering to help run the festival. Cheers! Enjoy the Festival Peterborough Beer Festival 2011 15


Texas Pale Ale

Texas Pale Ale

TEXAS PALE ALE….

FROM BOOTLEGGING TO MARKET DEEPING n a pleasant July morning some weeks back the cellar team embarked upon their annual outing to brew the festival special. This year it was thought that we might create something a little different. As a Texan living amongst you, I was persuaded to throw a few transatlantic ideas into the brew; after all, I’ve worked at the festival for a few years now and I do know a thing or two about beer (despite comments to the contrary)!

O

The idea of a Texas Pale Ale may seem a foreign concept to many of you over here in England but there is a history behind this interesting beer. The beer style originates in Texas as the name implies, but the question is, how did the style come about? After all, many will associate American beers with the ubiquitous Budweiser and Coors, so how did we Texans manage to come up with a cask conditioned beer of 5.8%! There are many stories and rumours appertaining to the creation of this popular beer but we can now reveal the true story. It all began during the 1920’s when prohibition had subdued the brewers of the United States and drinking anything supplied by the underworld may have resulted in your premature death. It was a young visionary named Stevie Chavez, who spent his time as a cow puncher, rodeo star, entrepreneur, and part-time brewer, who came up with this new style of beer. When he wasn’t busy running cows from north to south, he was happiest with a cold beer in his hand, if such a thing was possible in 1920’s Texas. Prohibition had hit Stevie hard as it had taken away one of his favourite pastimes. He found 16 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

himself to be more stressed and less sociable than before. He also noticed that there were more single ladies about due to the inability of the young suitors to gather enough courage to court the young lasses. It was time to remedy this situation and provide beer for the poor anxious men of the area, however illegal it may have been. It was on a routine trip to town to pick up supplies that our Mr Chavez happened upon an ex pat Englishmen called Michael Cravemore. It turns out that he, too, had been noticing the effects of the prohibition on the locals and thus had set up a ‘Tea Shop’ in order to alleviate some of the problems using his boiled malt “tea” as a remedy. The trouble with illicit supplies is that it’s a seller’s market and the quality wasn’t quite up to the mark. He did however know of a good supplier up north but had no way to transport it down to his shop, nor did he feel the product would make the journey in good nick. After some discussion our two cohorts came upon a cunning plan. Firstly, the brew had to be made a little different to survive the trip over many hundreds of miles of rough terrain. It also required a suitable disguise to prevent the beer falling into the hands of the ‘law men’. Chavez had long heard of a system used back in England of heavily hopping beer in order for it to make a long journey to India. It was also typically stronger that the usual stuff as well. Could the same ideas be used here? If so, what would be the best system to disguise the beer from prying official eyes? Well, if you have a herd of cows and you need to hide something within, there is only one option, false udders!

And so the ale was herded south on a long and arduous journey to San Antonio and to the tea shop of Mr Cravemore. Was the enterprise successful? Yes, very much so. In fact the locals took to it with great enthusiasm and the local ladies soon had emboldened suitors by the number (the baby boom seemed to hit Texas a few generations earlier than the rest of the States for some reason). Unfortunately, with great success sometimes comes even greater trouble. On the final day of prohibition, the authorities decided to make an example out of them. Stevie and Michael were forced to flee from the law with little notice, leaving behind everything…everything except their precious recipe. They holed up in a cave trying to decide what their next move would be, but unfortunately for them, this was the same day as the fateful earthquake of 1933 that rocked all of Texas. Michael and Stevie were lost in the cave never to be heard from again. Until, that is, an excavation carried out by the city of San Antonio dug up two skeletons, one clutching a piece of paper. The recipe was rediscovered and now thanks to our cellar team and Hopshackle Brewery the beer lives again!!!

We would like to encourage you to try the first public serving of a true Texas Pale Ale in over 77 years. It has been brewed to the exact specification dictated by the original recipe and should be as close to the original as possible. We have even arranged for it to be herded in false udders from Market Deeping. So, if you find yourself enjoying one (or two or three), we would encourage you to raise your glass and give three cheers to Stevie and Michael for giving us such a great treat. Steve Saldana

WHAT IS CAMRA LocAle? he CAMRA LocAle scheme was started in 2007 by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA which wanted to help support the tradition of brewing within Nottinghamshire. Peterborough Branch started the scheme in 2009 and currently has 115 Pubs and Clubs who have joined.

T

The idea is to promote local pubs who sell local beers which have been brewed within 30 miles of the pub, thereby reducing the mileage the beer travels and also helping the local economy and the environment.

The huge and growing demand for local real ales is demonstrated by the 11% growth in beer volumes being enjoyed by local brewers, while overall beer sales are in decline. Here in Peterborough we have many local breweries producing good local beers so have a look around today and enjoy. John Rice LocAle Officer

CHUCK IT

IN THE BUCKET

ell here we are again, the beer and bucket rattling season has arrived! Yes, once again the cries of “ANY LOOSE CHANGE!” will be echoing again across the embankment and most of Peterborough as well. As I sat down to write this, an email press release from our local Lifeboat at Skeggy popped up. “How fortuitous”, I mused, “this will save me some thinking”, an activity some of those who know me may believe I am not equipped for anyway. So without further ado, this is it.

W

Skegness inshore lifeboat Peterborough Beer Festival IV called out at 5am The lifeboat was tasked to a position off North Shore Road where the 26-year-old man was found near a groyne, approximately 30 yards from the shoreline, barely knee-deep in water. Having decided to go for a walk along the beach after a night out in the town, he found himself cut off by an incoming tide.  Inshore lifeboat helmsman Dean Sumner approached the man and was able to assist him back to the beach and into the safe hands of waiting Coastguards and paramedics.  Bear in mind, this lifeboat was paid for by YOU, the patrons of the Peterborough Beer Festival, chucking your loose change in the buckets proffered. The generosity of the people attending the Beer Fest is almost unbelievable, particularly when you consider that not only Peterborough, but the whole of Cambridgeshire is land-locked! And just to prove that where lifeboats are concerned anything can happen, during the official naming ceremony, Peterborough

Beer Festival IV was called out to a jet skier in difficulties. I believe the chairman’s comment was, “Was it something I said”? Fortunately the shout was a quick one and the ceremony was held up only briefly. Fact and figures In 1989, we collected the grand total of £373. 10 years later, in 1999 we collected 30 times that amount, some £11173! This adds up to a grand total of £156,568, a fantastic tribute to you, the festival devotees. It is being discussed between the local branches of CAMRA and the RNLI, that with the next lot of dosh, instead of another ‘D’ class lifeboat, we use the money to equip a Lifeguard station. This shore based equipment includes such things as Quad bikes, Jet Skis, uniforms, shelter etc. Remember, it may only be a few coppers to you, but to someone it could be a lifesaver. So, CHUCK IT IN THE BUCKET! Have a great Festival! Martyn Edgar. RNLI

World Bottled Beers

World Bottled Beers

BOTTLE BAR his is my first year of running the so called Bottle Bar a better description might be European and Global Beer Bar. We have on offer this year a total of 160 beers from 28 countries. As is usual the majority of the beers are from Belgium, but we have tried to expand the selection of beers from other parts and hope to continue to do so in the future. The mix of the beers vary from the sour tasting Gauzes made from a mix of Lambic beers unique to the Brussels area to the Rauchbier (smoked beer) from Bamberg in Germany, the later being compared to a liquefied hank of smoked ham in a bottle.

T

We have 6 of the 7 Trappist beers from Belgium and the Nederland’s as well as a wide range of Lagers and Pils, which bear no resemblance to the commercial chemically balanced ones normally found. We even have an Abbey Beer from France. Not to be forgotten there is the Fruit beers for those with a sweet tooth. For those who are designated drivers, we have two alcohol free beers so you can enjoy a drink and still drive. So come and tickle your taste buds, we look forward to seeing and serving you. Cheers! Na zdravi! Proost! Santé! Zum wohl! Salute! Salud! and Skål! Peter Josling

The beers marked V are those that we have been able to find on the Internet verifying that they do not use isinglass or any other animal product. Those marked O claim also to be organic. Note that many bottles will not fit into a half pint glass and we are unable to let bottles go over the bar. If you have a half pint glass you may want to exchange it for a pint glass or a festival bottle glass.

Cider and Perry List

Cider and Perry List Brook Farm Wigmore, Herefordshire

CIDER & PERRY BAR W elcome to the cider and perry bar. Responding to feedback from last year’s festival the cider bar has moved to the middle tent so you will not have to walk so far to get your cider; in addition there will be a small supplementary cider bar in the music tent. All the ciders and perries sold here are ‘real’ in the sense that they consist of nothing but fermented apple and fermented pear juice respectively. Furthermore they are not served chilled, nor are they artificially carbonated or served under gas pressure, all of which practices are commonplace in the dispense of some commercial brands. You will find that the majority of ciders and perries come from the traditional cider making areas in the West Country where apple and pear varieties are grown specifically for cider / perry making. Where cider is made elsewhere in the country it is usually, but not exclusively made from a mixture of cookers and eaters producing what is known as “Eastern Counties” style cider. We have a few examples of these ciders at the festival. The range of styles and flavours is huge, and the bar staff will be happy to give small tastes and discuss the drinks with you provided the bar is not too busy. You will find that most real ciders and perries lie in the range 5.5% to 8% A.B.V. simply because that is what a natural fermentation of 100% fruit juice produces; this is a lot stronger than many commercial ciders, so beware! We are also selling a range of non-alcoholic apple juices on the bar. Again, these are all 100% juice and are usually produced from a single apple variety; we expect to have Cox, Greensleeves, Discovery and Bramley. The tub labels should tell most of what you need to know when ordering. Green labels are cider and yellow labels are perry. Most ciders / perries are made from a blend of apple / pear va58 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

rieties; where a single variety has been used this is on the tub label. All the ciders and perries have been tasted prior to the festival and they have been categorized as Very Dry, Dry, Medium Dry, Medium, Medium Sweet, Sweet or Very Sweet, again this is on the label. You may disagree with us, but at least it gives you a starting point. Some ciders are naturally hazy or even cloudy; they will be labelled as such. Fortunately really thick ciders, complete with floating bits, the so called “dead rat scrumpy” is a thing of the past. Any special flavours, e.g. use of spirit casks will be noted on the labels. That enough introduction; you could easily have drunk half a pint of cider in the time it takes to read this! Cheers.

WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE here are many people out there who think mild is a drink for flat cap wearing, whippet owning Yorkshiremen and that all stouts are thick sweet sludge that taste like medicine, and the only porter they have ever had is Guinness, and, as Guinness is cold and gassy, not to mention ridiculously overpriced, it is probably the only dark beer they have ever tried.

T

There is still a stigma over dark beers. A lot of people won’t even try one because they “just know they will not like it” and I have to admit I used to be one of those people. But I saw the light, or should I say the dark, and I now prefer dark beers to light ones. Not so long ago most milds tasted roughly the same, as did most porters and most stouts, though there were obviously a few exceptions such as Sarah Hughes ruby mild and Theakstons Old Peculiar. But with the arrival of countless new hop varieties and innovative ways to flavour beers, the dark beers now have very different tastes. Instead of getting only sweet porters and bitter stouts we now have many dark hoppy beers, some so hoppy that if you were to drink them with your eyes shut you would not know what colour it was. Some of the new American and New Zealand hops make a dark beer taste fantastic and the addition of a bit of vanilla to stout makes for a wonderful drink. Milton’s Nero is a stout with a touch of vanilla that just takes away the slight bitterness that would otherwise be present. Mrs Simpsons Thriller in Manilla from Brown Cow has slightly more vanilla which, combined with the higher alcohol content of this beer, makes it very easy to drink. Another one to try at the festival is

Boggart Hole Rum Porter. Its exactly what it says on the cask, a rich smooth porter with just a hint of rum, not enough to spoil it, just enough to make it taste great. So why not try some dark ones this year. We will be having a few more darker beers this year , but some of them will be one firkin only and when its gone its gone, so if you fancy trying a few it might be worth going a bit earlier in the week. Some interesting dark beers to look out for at the festival are:-

Brown Cow – Mrs Simpsons Thriller in Vanilla Batemans – Salem Porter Boggart Hole – Rum Porter 8 Sail – Victorian Porter Arbor – Oyster Stout Black Sheep – Riggwelter Elgoods – Black Eagle Imperial Stout Fullers – Past Masters Double Stout Hopback – Entire Stout Le Brewery Normandy – Odo Apart from the above, there are dozens more, so why not be a bit adventurous and step over to the dark side.

Quality Through Skill And Passion

Fine English Ales Brewed In Rutland

Brewing in Market Deeping

THE ANATOMY OF A BEER n the 8 of July, 2011, a group of nine cellarmen joined together on a journey of discovery. This journey was in search of a beer that would redefine what is thought of as a “festival special”. A journey that would take them not too far from home, but would change them forever. A journey......to Market Deeping!!!

O

For many people, not a lot of thought is put into the process of making a beer. As long as it comes out clear and it tastes nice, the process itself does not matter. For the nine of us, understanding this process is of the utmost importance...after-all, we are charged with keeping the beer in good condition for all to consume, and you must know the start to know the finish. We made the trip to Market Deeping with recipe in hand to be guided through the brewing process with the highly skilled and well respected brewer (and proprietor) Nigel from Hopshackle. The idea of this particular brew was to bring something a little different to the table. It was to create a beer that neither the cellar team nor the brewery had ever brewed before. This beer would not be a standard bitter or porter or mild, but instead this would be an “in your face” Texas styled India Pale Ale (everything is bigger in Texas, right?). The first course of action was to get the sugars out of the malt. This was done by cooking three varieties of malt in hot water for 90 minutes. Timing and the temperature are extremely important here, because if one of those is wrong, the right sugars will not be released and the profile of the beer would change. Once the mash was complete, the malt was sparged (continuously sprinkled with hot water) in order

to rinse off every last bit of useable sugar. After the sparge, the boil took place. For this particular ale, we used a 90 minute boil with three different types of hops being used in six different additions! After the boil, the wort (what the liquid is called before it becomes a beer) was run off and cooled. For us, the final stage was when the yeast was pitched, and the vessel was sealed up to let nature take its course. For Nigel, and our beer, there was still some work to be done. Over the course of the next week, measurements were taken to ensure the yeast had done its job and the target strength was going to be accomplished. Finally, the beer was racked and stored allowing for the secondary fermentation to take place in the cask. This experience at Hopshackle was an amazing one. Every ‘i’ was dotted and every ‘t’ was crossed. No detail was left unchecked. We were shown the fun side of brewing, but also the work that is involved. The fact that every single drop of this beer has been purchased for the festival ensures a special beer, and we wanted to make sure that it tasted special as well. The final outcome? Well, as stated by Nigel, this 5.8% ale has, “a very long hop flavour profile of citrus fruits (including gooseberry?)” with background malt and a bitter finish”... sounds to me exactly what we were going for. So enjoy a pint or two of this year's beer fest special beer, “Lonestar TPA” and remember, this is a one off beer, so when it is gone, IT IS REALLY GONE!

PBF NEEDS YOU! W hen you come along to this years Peterborough Beer Festival just pause a little on your way round, have a look at the number of staff that you see, doing their best to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. From the moment you enter the main gate to ‘hiring’ a glass, and choosing one of our vast range of beers, ciders and wines in one of the bars everyone of those people are all unpaid volunteers who give up their time and often holidays to serve you. Why do they do it?

So would you be prepared to give us a little (or a lot) of your time to assist in running the second largest Beer Festival in the land. We can fit you in to whatever you prefer to do- you don’t have to serve behind a bar. We give our thanks to you in allowing you to drink some free beer, giving you a meal at lunchtime and the evening and, running you home within a limited distance of the city and surrounding villages.

Simple, they all believe in continuing the fight to preserve the style of beers unique to this country and, keep the best outlets for these beers – our pubs. The fight against unfair tax rises, unscrupulous pubco companies implementing high rents coupled with unfair loading of beers available to the licensee. These are just a few of the battles CAMRA has highlighted in recent years.

Oh and we also have our own staff bar stocked with many beers not on sale in the main bars. If that still does not entice you to help then please respect our staff that are under a lot of pressure during busy times and, be patient when waiting to get served. Ask at the glasses bar or the information stand to direct you to the staff desk. Beers on us! The Staffing Team


Welcome

Peterborough Pub Guide

THE OFFICIAL PETERBOROUGH PUB GUIDE or those of you new to the city and the festival, Peterborough provides a variety of venues in which to drink real ale. From a quiet village pub just 25 minutes walk from the festival to Europe's largest brew pub, from a pub specialising in Afro-Caribbean cuisine to a 1930’s back street boozer known for the quality and variety of its ale. Peterborough has it all!

F

Below is a rundown of some of our favourites We shall divide the pubs into north and south of the river to make direction finding easier. To start with the festival is on the north bank of the Nene.

SOUTH OF THE RIVER The Woolpack, North St, Stanground This is the closest you can get to a village pub in the city. Situated in the ancient village of Stanground just south of the Nene, the Woolpack provides a bit of peace and tranquillity in a mad, mad world. The pub will provide up to five beers during the festival and will be open all day every day. Food is served but times vary so call the pub to find out details. We wouldn't want you to trek a whole mile in search of food and only find pork scratchings, although it's worth the walk for the nice beer anyway. The beer garden at the rear of the pub backs onto the old course of the river Nene and if you just happen to own a boat and you've brought it along, you can park it at the bottom of the garden. Phone 01733 753544. Charters, River Nene Just south of the river (on the river really) you will find Charters. This large converted grain barge will provide the easiest and most conven80 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

ient point to try more ales. Although, as it's the closest to the fest it might get a bit busy during 'festival down times'. Usually about a dozen ales on offer including a wide range of Oakham Ales. There's also a beer garden and a marquee to relax under, although not quite as extensive as the one at the festival it is quite pleasant! The restaurant on the top deck is called East and will cater for those in need of the exotic. Phone 01733 315700 The Cherry Tree, Oundle Rd The Cherry Tree is known as one of Peterborough's live music venues and has seen a wealth of talent play there. You will find at least four ales on offer, one or two will probably be local ones. Food is served 12-2 and 6-9 but please note there is no food on Thursday evening. Contact the Cherry Tree on 01733 703495 Swiss Cottage, Grove St The ‘Swiss’ is a pub with an Irish flavour but with a difference, in as much as not all the sales are Guinness related. The standard offering is Rooster’s Yankee which is unusual for this area. There are usually at least a couple of handpumps in use and the

choice tends towards local ales. Tydd Steam, Digfield and Oakham have been regulars in the past. No food but they’re open all day and they have a pool table. The Palmerston Arms, Oundle Rd At the time of writing the pub is in the process of changing hands so we're not quite sure what beers will be available. Mick and Karen have run the pub for a number of years and specialised in ales straight from the cask. It's fair to assume that our new incumbents will be carrying on the tradition. Check it out anyway. Phone number is 01733 565865. Coalheavers Arms, Park St The Coalheavers Arms is one of the city's success stories. During the festival the pub will probably have 8 or so beers on, some of which will be by Milton of Cambridge. A super pub, with a pleasant beer garden, known everywhere for their superb beer festivals. Tom, the landlord, has been busy creating home-made scotch eggs of varying types, colours and ingredients. Try one if you're lucky enough to get one before they run out. Other food is restricted to sandwiches. One of local CAMRA's favourite pubs which will be used, no doubt, as the 'Festival Tap' during the building of the festival! Open Tuesday onwards at midday during the festival. Phone 01733 565664,

NORTH OF THE RIVER The Beehive, Albert Place The pub has been open for about a year now and has gained a reputation for the excellent food on offer. Food is served 12-2.30 and 6pm until about 9.30pm during the week and 12-5pm on

Sundays. The 'House' ales here are made by local brewery, Castor Ales. Contact the Beehive on 01733 310600 The Draper's Arms, Cowgate This is what is termed a better quality Wetherspoon's. Lots of beers and award winning toilets! Good value food and a wide selection of ales. Open at 7am for coffee and breakfast. 01733 566966 Ostrich, North St Superbly refurbished, the Ostrich offers a selection of about five ales, at least one of which will be local. A real cider is also available. Live music is usually on at the weekends and there is a pleasant courtyard in which to enjoy your beer. No food available but worth finding anyway. 01733 746370 for details. Wortley Almshouses, Westgate At the top of Westgate you will come to the Wortley Almshouses. Converted into a pub in the early 1980's by Sam Smiths from an old and derelict almshouse. Several years ago it was refurbished and divided into many small and intimate rooms which won it an award. Sam Smiths OBB available with the usual competitive price. Brewery Tap This is the largest brew pub in Europe and is the home of Oakham Ales. Expect Oakham Ales on the bar and many, many others. The pub is famous for its Thai cuisine which is served lunchtime and dinner Monday to Thursday and all day Friday and Saturday. Probably the closest pub to the railway station although the Draper’s is probably equally distant. For more information call 01733 358500 The Rose, Burghley Rd This rather unique pub specialises in AfroCaribbean cuisine and is run by chef and owner Nick Rutta. Nick is a firm believer in real ales and his choices are firmly local, with Digfield and

Tydd Steam appearing fairly regularly. The pub's beer garden is now open. During the festival the Rose will be open from midday and there will be a 'Beer Festival' menu available. Quite what this entails is anyone's guess but knowing the reputation of the food, it should be interesting! Call Nick for more details or to book a table, although they can usually squeeze you in. 01733 873003 or see www.emberestaurant.com The Hand & Heart Rebuilt in the 1930's the 'Hand' is a pub which has remained at the forefront of real ale excellence for the last several years. Our landlord Bram and his good lady Sue have ensured that all of the beers served over the bar are in perfect condition. The range is ever changing and the pub now sports regular beer festivals with ales to keep any selfrespecting beer spotter occupied for some considerable time. The pub was awarded a Gold Award from Peterborough CAMRA and it was Cambridgeshire Pub of the Year for 2010. Put simply, if you're in Peterborough you need to visit the pub. To get to the pub you can use the local bus service (Citi 1 - every 10 minutes until 7 and then hourly) which will drop you off within a hundred yards of the pub (look for the motor bike shop on your left just after the traffic lights - Highbury St is opposite). A couple of suggestions..... Alright, I may be biased but for those unfamiliar with the city it might be easier for me to make a couple of suggestions. This way you won't have to sit twiddling your thumbs reading this wondering where to go before you visit the festival.

SUGGESTION ONE From Broadway near the city centre or from Queensgate. Catch the Citi 1 (going north) to the Hand & Heart in Millfield for opening time (midday). Spend a quiet hour or so contemplating the many ales on offer. Retrace your steps to Lincoln Rd and catch the Citi 1 back towards town. The second pub, the Rose will be found at the bottom of the slope on the left hand side of 82 Peterborough Beer Festival 2011

Burghley Rd. Take advantage of the lunchtime or special Beer Festival Menu. Sample a local beer. Head to the festival. You can catch the Citi 1 again and get off at Broadway and walk to the festival site from there. Alternatively walk from the Rose. Another idea would have been to stay on the Citi 1 out of town past the Hand & Heart and remain on the bus until you arrive at Werrington Centre which will be another 20 minutes or so. The Ploughman is Peterborough's Pub of the Year 2011 and will have half a dozen beers on. A bit of a trek but we like it.

SUGGESTION TWO Catch the Citi 1 (going south) which will take you south of the river. You are heading for the Cherry Tree for lunch. Food is served 12-2pm and the emphasis is on traditional British fare. Following your meal, head diagonally across the park opposite. In the corner there is a small alleyway which will take you through to London Rd (nearly). 100 yards further out of town you will find an off licence. Turning here into Park Street you will find the Coalheavers Arms with eight or so beers. A bus stop near to the off licence will get you back into town (Citi 7). An alternative would be to nip into the Swiss Cottage just around the corner from the Cherry Tree. There is a daily ticket available for local (Stagecoach) buses called a 'Day Rider' and will cost you £3.50 for unlimited travel. Timetables and maps are available from Queensgate Bus Station information kiosk. We hope you will find time to visit a few of the above pubs but don’t forget to return to the Festival. There's a lot of beer, cider and wine to be drunk! If you’re not sure how to find some of these pubs, pick up a map from the Membership stand.
