Oban Heather Returns!
Published by henry on Tue, 06/21/2016 - 14:39
This one-off brew was so good that it sold out in just a couple of weeks!
So we decided to brew it again.
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.
Originally made as an accompaniment to a Robbie Burns dinner, it is so totally sessionable you'll want to drink it any time of the year, and what better time than now?
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. And also for a limited time you can find it at Liquid Assets, that great Nova Scotia retailer on the air-side of the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
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.
