Wee Peat Scottish Ale
Scottish Ales traditionally go through a long boil in the kettle. This produces a deep copper to brown in colored brew and a higher level of unfermentable sugars which creates a rich mouthfeel and malty flavors and aromas. Peat malt often provides rich, smokey character.
Overall hop character is low, light floral or herbal, allowing its signature malt profile to be the highlight. Available now at Squatters locations.
Round one continues today In the Utah Beer Challenge. We're increasing the number of beers for the next 48 hours to help speed things along.
No green beer tomorrow, damn it! Only drink craft brands and local if at all possible. And please be safe.
