Desert Select Scotch Ale
Our Scotch ale or “Wee Heavy,” was included in this series to pay tribute to the hearty Scots who have enjoyed rich, full ales for centuries. This ale was traditionally made with malt dried in peat-fired ovens. This leaves a slightly smoky flavor adding to the malt character. “Wee Heavy” is made with fine Two Row barley and a portion of smoked malt, English hops, pure Moab water and Scottish yeast. It is aged in French oak and bottle conditioned. “Wee Heavy” is a brown-ruby rich color and has a sweet malt character.
The Scotch Ale pairs well with sharp cheddars and aged gruyère cheese, roasted beef, smoked salmon, grilled lamb, and large game dishes. Brilliant with sticky toffee pudding or chocolate chip shortbread.
