Damson and Chamomile Scottish Sour Ale
Scottish Sour Ale fermented with Damson and Chamomile, aged in barrels. Fruity sweetness gives way to delicate floral chamomile and funky brettanomcyes character. Sweet damson accentuates the acidity and tannic notes rom wine barrel ageing, while chamomile flowers provide a delicate counterpoint. The dry and tannic notes ebb to the lingering warmth of calming chamomile. And a finish as sharp as a sword-smith's master-class awaits.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Oats, Pilsner, Wheat
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hallertauer Blanc, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
