Banded Oak Brewing—Scotch Ale
This is a full bodied wee heavy style with bold suggestions of molasses and toffee that meld with toasted and biscuity malt that lend a flavor of raisin and fire-roasted almonds. Expect a sweet finish with a moderate burn of alcohol.
Available at Banded Oak’s Tasting Room.
ABV: 7.8%


Call to Arms Brewing—Dust in the Wind Irish Dry Stout
This seriously drinkable stout offers roasty notes with a hint of mole on the nose and a light smoke aroma. It has this really fun chocolate, cinnamon thing on the nose. Dry and drinkable, like Guinness but better.  
Available at Call to Arms’ Tasting Room.
ABV: 5.2%


Great Divide Brewing—Claymore Scotch Ale
Named for a medieval Scottish sword, CLAYMORE SCOTCH ALE is Great Divide’s tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. This malty, deep-ruby beauty features lots of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile, and a subtle warming character. Unlike its namesake, this beer only requires one hand, but it’ll still make you feel like nobility.
Available at both Great Divide Tap Rooms
ABV: 7.7%


Maxline Brewing—Irish Red
This easy-drinking brew boasts notes of caramel, bread crust, and bing cherries. Aromas of sweet caramel and toffee greet the nose as this medium-bodied brew is enjoyed. Pair Irish Red with lamb, tiramisu, barbecue, and roast beef.
Available at Maxline’s Tasting Room.
ABV: 6.0%
