Bruce's 80 Scottish Ale

Donovan Steele, Secret Agent and Brewmaster at Hoppers in Midvale has a new seasonal ale available this Friday the 13th. Bruce's 80 is a Scottish ale that's been aging in the tank for several weeks.

Dono descibes this first time offering as an amber hued ale that's very rich, toasty, roasty, smoky and malty with hints of fig and Bourbon. East Kent hops were used and add a very slight, crisp 'n clean bitterness.


Dono says, he really likes working on the seasonals. "It gives me the time and freedom to do research and formulate a new batch...at the end of the day I feel a little better about my student loans".


Sounds like money well spent! Available only at Hoppers. Cheers!

I just bought a Acme Pale Ale from the State Wine Store on 3rd east. Andy, did they mention which ones were available at those stores?

Brilliant Andy! Guess I know what I'm going to be doing for the next couple of days...

No, I actually only asked about the Acme. They didn't have any at the wine store Saturday when I was there, and they didn't mention the 3rd east store on the phone either. Hmm. I'll have to go in again. Unfortunately, I spent all my money on beautiful Spanish wines during their wine sale (Oh if only they had beer sales the way they have wine sales...)
