Sheep Eater Scotch Ale Released From Grand Teton
Grand Teton Brewing Company will be releasing the Sheep Eater Scotch Ale on January 9th, the final release in their 2009 “Cellar Reserve” series of specialty beers. The 2009 Cellar Reserve beers were dedicated to, and brewed in strict adherence with, the Reinheitsgebot, the 1516 Bavarian beer purity law. Each beer is brewed to highlight one of the four true beer ingredients: malt, hops, yeast and water.
Sheep Eater Scotch Ale was brewed to showcase the role of malt in the flavor of beer.
The Scotch Ale was brewed with black roasted barley and peat-smoked malt. It was gently hopped, fermented cool and aged cold for weeks, and is copper-brown in color with some sweet maltiness.
The Sheep Eater Scotch Ale will be available at select locations in Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Oregon, Montana, Washington, New York, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas and Missouri.
