We receive more requests to make Great Scot! a full time beer
than anything else we've brewed. Although it's not a full
time beer just yet, we've brewed it again and look forward to some
pairings with kegs left over from 2012 and 2013.
It's possible we'll sprinkle in another limited release from
the past, but we're absolutely releasing a new beer in June.
We're especially excited about it and you'll know why when we
release those details. Stay tuned.
Just in time for St. Patrick's Day. We're delivering it
all over Dallas right now.
Irish Red Ale 6.5% ABV / 27 IBU
Ever been out to the bar and
your friend disappears without nary a word? That move is
called the “Irish Goodbye” and is the name we’ve bestowed upon our
Irish Red Ale. It is a beautiful copper red color
with low fruity-ester aroma accompanied by a rocky dense off white
head. Candy like malt sweetness is enhanced by a subtle
degree of roasted malt that brings a level of complexity to nice
even keeled hop flavor and bitterness.
Our 2 year anniversary was a
complete ball! We truly want to thank you guys, the
consumers, for providing us with such a great start to our
business. Upon opening, we made a short term goal of simply
being in business for 3 years (as many start ups never make it that
long), and we are 2/3 of the way there thanks to you.
As many of you know, we do
not market our beer. We have not walked into a bar or
restaurant to sell our beer in a year and a half. Instead, we
have relied on you all to hound bartenders, managers, and anyone
else who would listen about Peticolas beer . Our
marketing superstars are you, our consumers. We could not
have made it the past two year without you. Y'all are
the engine that drives our business and for this we thank
It was great to visit with so
many of you yesterday and get to know you all throughout the
past two years. So many of you have simply been critical to
our success. The Dallas Brew Scene boys, the festival
throwing Montgomery's and Corey Pond, other local brewers, the
folks who pour our beer at local restaurants and bars, but most of
all, the great people who continue to support us by buying our beer
and coming to our events. There are simply too many of you to
individually name, but you know who you are. We've become
friends with many of you and only wish we had more time to sit
and visit with you at every event.
Finally, and most importantly,
thanks are in order for our volunteers, who have shown us
massive/tremendous/unrelenting support since we opened.
Hopefully feelings aren't hurt if we inadvertently left someone
out, but thank you Poindexter, Rollans, Our gal Val, Adrian (one)
