Wondering about Scottish ales? They are worth exploring! Scottish ales are generally heavier than IPAs and lighter than Guinness. They carry a higher ABV than session beers, generally having 8-10% ABV content. Critics report that they have a surprisingly light and clean taste due to the Scottish ale brewing process. A few recommended by the Wall Street Journal include 21st Amendment Brewery’s Kilt by Wildfire and Four Peaks Brewing Company’s Kilt Lifter. AleSmith names its Scottish ale after its Scottish nickname, Wee Heavy.
Here in the Roc, Knucklehead Brewery has Scottish ale and at least one day each week, the owners will serve you wearing a kilt.
