Scotch Style Ale from Boundary Bay Brewing, Bellingham, WA. 6.4% ABV. This hearty red ale is brewed in a Scotch and Wee Heavy style. It has a rich, robust malty body that is smoothed out with just the right amount of hops. The result is a slightly smoky and bittersweet classy ale.
Don’t just reserve this for cool months; this Scotch-Style Ale is a year-round favorite. Pair it with snacks and chips, including sharp cheddar cheese, Co-oEp Deli-made Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and crispy vegetables; or try its earthy, malty goodness alongside your favorite BBQ and black bean burgers. This Scotch Ale is incredibly food friendly, and also goes well with elegant desserts, such as creme caramel or chocolate truffles!
