Aye, cheers to all the Scots…it is you who inspire us to make this beer. St. Andrews Day, November 30th, is the national day of Scotland. St. Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland, and Scots celebrate this day around the world. The flag of Scotland is the Cross of St. Andrew, and this is widely displayed as a symbol of national identity, thus the crest accompanying the story behind this beer.
This caramelized, malt forward Scotch Ale is brewed in honor of St. Andrew and is a brave, collaborative effort of two brewers, Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing Company & Curt Plants of GoodLife Brewing Company. This beer is fantastic – Slainte Mhath! (Cheers or Good Health in Scottish Gaelic, pronounced “Slanchay Va”!)
Your passion, honor of tradition and heart is amazing! We thank you for inviting us to be a part of your celebration.
