Oakham Ales Welcomes the Royal Anglian Regiment (The Vikings) Home With ‘Return of the Vikings’ Brew

Innovative East Midlands brewey, Oakham Ales, has brewed a special beer – ‘Return of the Vikings’ – to mark the home coming of the Royal Anglian Regiment, who are also known as the Vikings.   The returning soldiers handed in their weapons at Peterborough Town Hall on the 9th November and the entire regiment was invited for a free pint of ‘Return of the Vikings’ beer at Charters, the popular riverside bar based in Peterborough.  

‘Return of the Vikings’ has a 4.8% A.B.V. is dark in colour with a substantial hop aroma and taste.  Its sweetness leads to a long, hoppy, bittersweet finish.  Returning soldiers relaxed with a pint and chatted with locals.  The limited edition ale is on sale at Charters and The Brewery Tap, Westgate as well as selected pubs in Peterborough during the month of November.
