Malty Scotch Ale
This big ale is malty and rich, sweet yet strong...it makes it mighty easy to have another. 6.6%
Story Behind the Name
The style is Wee Heavy. The kind of “wee” in scottish that means “a little bit”, so a bit heavy. We also like that the Wee invokes power of teamwork of “we”.

Wee Heavy or Strong Scotch Ale
Why We Don't Call It That
For stylists, this is a Strong Scotch Ale, also known as a "Wee Heavy". By today's standards, a ~6% beer is not very strong, so we feel the old style name could be misleading. We don't call it "heavy" because it's not, but it is mighty.

A step up from Black but not as bold and …Before the Dawn
It looks a bit, some might say wee, heavy but this rich and malty ale has light body and finishes with a chocolatey dry roasty flavor.
