Oban Heather

We've gone Scottish!

Something must have gotten over us, and we couldn't resist.
We invited our good friend Jason "Professor" McDougall to come and brew something special.

Made with loads of Golden Promise Malt, it has a perfect malty biscuity base to showcase the 35 kg of Scottish Heather flowers we put into the brew.
To balance all those heady floral notes of the Heather, we added lots and lots of wildflower honey from our producer up in the Annapolis Valley, and just a hint of peat smoked malt.

The we added just a touch of English Fuggles hops to balance the whole affair.

It's the perfect accompaniment to your Robbie Burns dinner. But it's so sessionable you'll want to drink it any time.
This beer is so unmistakably Scottish that you'll be donning your kilt before the end of your pint!

Available for a limited time only at select bars in Halifax and Antigonish, as well as in 650 ml bottles at Bishop's Cellar, Rockhead Wine & Beer Market, Harvest Wines, and Cristall Wine Merchants.
It will be available in 1L growlers at our stalls at the Halifax Seaport Market and the Alderney Farmers' Market on Saturdays from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm.
Of course you can also get it at the Brewery retail store in Shelburne.
