Festival brew honours civil engineer

The official beer of the Frome Festival has been launched by the Milk Street Brewery.

This year’s festival theme is a celebration of the life and works of civil engineer Sir Benjamin Baker.

A Frome man born and bred, he became one of the greatest engineers of his age – the Forth Bridge being one of his many accomplishments.

The beer, named Iron Brew, is a new real ale and has an ABV of 4.1 per cent.

Charlie Thomas, manager of the Griffin pub, which is attached to the Milk Street Brewery, said: “The beer is a full-bodied amber ale with hops.

“It has been brewed to celebrate the visionary genius of the Frome engineer.”
