Wee Mighty

Malty Scotch Ale

caramel
roasty
dried fruit

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”.
Occasion
Evening or rainy day
Official Style
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.

Other Notes
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.
