Budgie Smuggler

Budgie SmugglerThat mischievous lot over at Alechemy Brewing have brought out a super hoppy summer beer – just in time for the heatwave! How clever is that? “Budgie Smuggler” is one of their “Freestyle Friday” inventions and is rammed full of Australian hops and then dry-hopped with even more Australian hops, just in case there weren’t enough Australian hops in there. 8.3% abv and in 330ml bottles, it’ll ruffle yer feathers for you. Limited supply of this so get in quick!

Bring Out The Imp

Bring Out The Imp“BRING OUT THE IMP!” is the entertaining name for the newest bottled beer from the wunnerful Alechemy Brewing. This wee dark beastie is a 10.5% Imperial stout, brewed with molasses, liquorice and oatmeal. It’s fermented with a Belgian yeast and, if that’s not enough to scare you, it’s then aged for three months in 55 year old whisky casks! We like to think the wee imps on the label are perhaps distantly related to oor Keith.

Go on….get yourself a bottle or two….we double dares ya!

Pilot Beer – UltraVilot

UltraVilotThis is a bit different. Pilot brewery in Leith, Edinburgh have now bottled their (in)famous “UltraVilot” in 660ml bottles. UltraVilot began life as a one-off beer for a local bar’s beer festival. It’s a hefeweizen and each batch is infused with over 12kg of “hand unwrapped” Parma Violet sweets. (How “craft” is that, eh?) It seems to be a sort of Marmite, love it or hate it kind of beer but it should definitely be tried at least once.

Cromarty Brewing – Burgundy Union

Burgundy UnionThis one is so ‘fresh out the wrapper’ new that we have no tasting notes for it! It’s from Cromarty Brewing Co though so we can safely say it’ll be good. “Burgundy Union” is a part oak barrel fermented brown ale – 5%abv. Our one is resting in the fridge just now so we’ll let you know later what we think of it.
