The Ale of Doctor Moreau
Brewed on a small volcanic islet, the Ale of Doctor Moreau is a testament to the single-minded fervour of its creator.
There is a strange, beastly quality to this blood-red brew, with an aftertaste that many find hard to pin down.
“His is the Beer of Pain.
His is the Beer that Makes.
His is the Beer that Wounds.
His is the Beer that Heals.”
Last term I took a course called Lost Worlds, all about Victorian and Edwardian Science Fiction and Fantasy literature (yep, it was as good as it sounds). Just before Christmas, another classmate and I made twelve beers as a present for the lecturer; one for each book on the course. Here’s the first, based - obviously - on H. G. Wells’s The Island of Dr Moreau.
