BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Atlantic Brewing Company / Mainely Meat BBQ
Maine, United States | website

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Scotland’s rugged soils are not conducive to the cultivation of hops that grow readily in England, so during times of political strife Scotland’s southern neighbor would deprive Scottish brewers of their hops. The resourceful Scot turned to his native heather as a flavoring for his ales. Heather grows wild in the rockbound highlands and when added to the beer yields a silky aromatic result. Our Scottish Ale is brewed with a large amount of both malted barley and heather producing a rich-bodied ale with a sweet finish true to the style.

Formerly known as MacFoochie's 7+.
