Pine Needles. Yeah, pine needles. That is what went into brewing this Scotish ale. The Williams Brothers Brewing company. I admire the Williams brothers for their craft brews. They take old style ales that have not been popular in centuries, and recreate them using authentic techniques and in doing so bring back from hiatus some excellent recipes. This one is no exception. This beer had a strong pine flavor, but was rather enjoyable. They say to enjoy it at room temperature, in doing so it ensures that you get the full pine flavor, as well as the wamrth of the alcohol (it weighs in at a slightly higher than average 7.5% ABV). If you can get your hands on some of their brews whislt traveling around Europe, please do. Also, don’t forget your favorite Blake, ensure you bring him some bottles back stateside!
Three hundred and forty nine to go. Please don’t forget to send me your recommendations of beers that you feel I should include in this year of beer! Blake@Beerwithblake.com!
