Sawney Bean (Sour Scottish Ale)
ABV: 5% IBU: 20 SRM: 16
According to legend, Sawney Bean (pronounced SHAW-NEE BEEN) lived in a cave on the coast of Scotland with his wife and children during the 16th century. They weren’t your average Scottish family. Disappearances in the region numbered in the hundreds. When authorities finally discovered the cave, evidence of grisly and horrifying acts were everywhere. Just like its namesake spent years souring in a cave, our Sawney Bean brew spent days souring in the depths of our boil kettle with Lactobacillus. The sour tartness is only matched by the malty backbone and slight sweetness. We’re tapping this spooky beer to kick off our Halloween Bash at noon on October 31st!
