About this blog

I'll be posting news of the Brewery and giving you some advanced information about the beers I'll be brewing. And letting you know when (and where) they're being sold.

I'll also suggest what food these beers might accompany, just as we do for wines. Yes, beers can be matched to food, not just drunk to slake a thirst.

Auld Peat

On sale nowPosted by Richard Marshall 30 Jan, 2014 16:27:59
Just about to go on sale is the latest ale - Auld Peat. Those attending the Hermitage Burns Night on Saturday 1st will have first chance to try it. It's quite strong (ABV 5.2%) and dark with whiskey malt in addition to the regular pale and crystal malts. I've used three varieties of hops: Progress and Challenger, both of which give really nice, smooth bitterness, and Williamette added at the end of the boil to give aroma that is fruity, floral and a touch spicy. The whiskey malt gives a clue to the name - this is somewhat in the style of Scottish ales, partly in honour of Robert Burns, whose birthday is celebrated at the end of January. So 'SlĂ inte mhath!' (Slaanche vaa).
