Peterhead Prison warders remembered with new Jail Ale
Beer launched in a collaboration between prison museum and local brewery.
A collaboration between a museum and a brewery has led to the creation of a new beer.
Jail Ale came about after the manager of craft brewery Brew Toon visited the Peterhead Prison Museum.
The beer, which goes on sale later this month, is said to be a tribute to the staff who worked at the prison from 1888 until it was closed in 2013.
Brew Toon manager Cameron Bowden said: "HM Convict Prison Peterhead was Scotland's toughest jail, home to the most notorious inmates, watched over daily by warders of strong character.
"Like them, this beer is a no-nonsense, heart on its sleeve kind of red ale, unashamedly packed full of character; a strong, caramel and biscuit nose with a hoppy full strength punch."
Alex Geddes, manager at the museum, added: "We are delighted to work with Cameron on this innovative concept and wish him and Brew Toon every success with its development.
"As a fellow visitor attraction we realise the importance of our collaboration to benefit the wider town regeneration and look forward to seeing how the ale evolves in time."
