Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which beer from Adnams shares its name with an SUV from Ford?

Answer: Explorer

Explorer is a blonde ale which has a pungent apricot scent, which then gives way to pine and yeast flavours. It is a dry hopped ale, using Chinook and Columbus varieties which give it a dry, citrus finish. As with the majority of UK ales, it should be served at room temperature in order to allow all of the flavours to fully present.
2. Scottish brewery Belhaven brew a very nice IPA, which is named for a "twisted" example of which symbol of Scotland?

Answer: Thistle

Twisted Thistle uses Challenger, Cascade and Hersbrucker hops to offer bitterness with a floral hint. Belhaven Brewery was established in 1719, 20 miles east of Edinburgh and has brewed many award winning ales in its time. The company uses only local Scottish barley to make its ales and has a sister ale to Twisted Thistle, the Twisted Grapefruit IPA, which in 2018 was named beer of the year at the Scottish Beer Awards.
3. Badger Brewery make many good beers, one of which is named after the ferret. How is the ferret described in the beer's name?

Answer: Fursty

Not only do Badger make a range of good beers, they like alliterative names as well. In addition to Fursty Ferret blonde ale, they also produce Hopping Hare pale ale, Wicked Wyvern IPA, while previous brews included Firkin Fox, Wild Wader and Pickled Partridge.
4. Blue Monkey Brewery from Nottinghamshire produce a ruby ale, the name of which is a play on the title of a popular song. Name it.

Answer: 99 Red Baboons

99 Red Baboons is a fruity ruby ale with a satisfying malty taste. It is sold as a ruby ale, but beer fans have long argued over whether it is a porter or a mild, so unique is the taste.
Blue Monkey also manufacture a Russian Imperial Stout named Baboonska and a pale ale called Marmoset.
5. Although this beer from Daleside Brewery is named for Jane Ingilby, it could easily apply to Annie Oakley as well. What is this amber ale called?

Answer: Crackshot

Daleside Brewery, based in North Yorkshire, brew several special ales. Their award winning Morocco ale is a spiced beer brewed to a secret 17th century recipe, while Ripon Jewel is a strong pale ale which was commissioned by Ripon cathedral.
Crackshot is named in honour of Jane Ingilby, who, legend has it, dressed as a man and rode into battle alongside her brother Sir William, at the Battle of Marston Moor, the largest battle that has ever been fought on English soil.
6. Using a fruit which is a cross between the European raspberry, European blackberry, American dewberry and loganberry, Fat Cat Brewing make which milkshake stout?

Answer: Boysen the Hood

This is a creamy, sweet milkshake stout from these boys in Norwich. Heavy on boysenberry flavour with a delightful chocolate finish, it is a smooth drinking ale.
Fat Cat Brewing was formed in 2005 and also brew such delights as Tom Cat IPA, Wild Cat Extra Pale Ale and Marmalade Cat strong bitter.
7. Robinson's Brewery in Stockport produce a range of ales in partnership with rock band Iron Maiden. Which was the first ale produced in this range?

Answer: Trooper

The recipe for Trooper was conceived by Bruce Dickinson, lead singer with Iron Maiden. Since the beer's launch in 2013, there have been several variations and other Iron Maiden inspired beers, including 666, a stronger version of Trooper, and Red 'n' Black, a liquorice and honey flavoured version.
The beer takes its name from the Iron Maiden song, "The Trooper" (1983) which was inspired by the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaclava in 1854.
8. Moorhouse's Brewery in Lancashire brew several beers which tie in with a famous historical event in the area. One of these ales is named after Demdike, Device and Chattox. Which beer would this be?

Answer: 3 Wise Witches

Demdike, Device and Chattox were the most well known of the Pendle witches who went on trial in 1612. 3 Wise Witches is an amber ale, only available at Christmas time, but certainly worth the wait with its soft malt taste and bittersweet finish.
Other ales brewed by Moorhouse's to celebrate the Pendle witch trials include Blonde Witch, White Witch, Witches Cauldron and Witchfinder General.
9. Black Sheep Brewery from Masham name one of their brews after a term meaning a sheep which has fallen onto its back and is unable to get up. What is this ale called?

Answer: Riggwelter

A riggwelter is usually unable to get off its back due to the weight of the fleece and the name comes from the Nordic "rygg" meaning "back", and "velte" meaning "to overturn".
Riggwelter beer has won many awards and is a strong dark ruby ale.
A wether is a castrated male sheep, a chilver is a female lamb, while a daft owd beggar could probably apply to any sheep, and many a shepherd no doubt.
10. Bishops Finger from Shepherd Neame Brewery takes its name from the signposts that showed pilgrims the way to tomb of which former Archbishop of Canterbury?

Answer: Thomas Becket

Bishops Finger has been brewed by Shepherd Neame since 1958, making it one of UK's oldest and best loved bottled beers. It is unique in that it is brewed to a charter which only permits the head brewer to brew it, and only on a Friday. The charter also states that the beer must be brewed using 100% natural ingredients, Kentish hops and barley, and the brewery's own artesian mineral water. The Bishop's Finger was a Kentish nickname for the ancient signposts on the Pilgrims Way pointing to Canterbury and the shrine of Thomas A Becket, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 to his assassination in 1170.
