Not in my house as I’m out of stock, alas. I’ll be sipping an Islay single malt late at night, but if you’re after some beer recommendations then here are a few Great Scots you should sample. Slàinte mhath!
Ola Dubh: A seriously rich imperial porter fermented in Highland Park whisky barrels, the “Black Oil” really is a unique treat.
Red Kite: A wonderfully sweet session ale from the wild north. The Black Isle Brewery really hit the mark with this one.
Innes & Gunn Oak Aged Original: Another one from the barrel, this time Bourbon. This is an acquired taste as it’s very, very rich.
Flying Dutchman: A Scottish white beer invented by a Dutchman. No really. Honey, caramel, hops. Delicious!
Brewdog Punk IPA: One of the most famous beers to come out of Scotland in recent years, the Punk IPA is a masterclass in hopsmanship.
Yellowhammer: A golden, straw-coloured pale ale which goes down a treat during the summer months.
Caledonian 80 Shilling: Not one of the most tasty, perhaps, but definitely a favourite, multi-malted Scottish session ale.
Brewdog 5am Saint: Another red ale with an enticing floralness to it. “An all-out riot of citrus, orange and lychee”.
Profanity Stout: It’s a stout, but it tastes like a black IPA. One of my favourite stouts.
Deuchars IPA: Supreme Beer Champion of Britain in 2002. Highly quaffable and delightfully balanced.Tweet
