Left Hand Rye Bock

Left Hand Rye Bock

"Opens with an initial tangy, sweet, dried cherry nose alongside the spicy tingle of the malted rye, and finishes long and savorable. The sweetness of the malt is nicely balanced by the tanginess of the rye malt, causing one to perceive "a loaf of bread in every bottle". Pairs with turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberries and creme brulee." -- Left Hand

BrewDog has arrived!

BrewDog Punk IPA
Post Modern Classic Pale Ale

"A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast. An exciting beer that will captivate with a whole body drinking experience. " -- BrewDog

BrewDog The Physics

Laid Back Amber Ale

"A historically accurate beer based on the recipe devised on the 8th of February 2007. Recreated using the finest coloured malts which provide the complex sweet malt character which initially arouses the senses. Like a fine cheese cake the biscuit base has a smooth and creamy layer that both satisfies and entices. Culminating with a delicate fruit topping of blackcurrant and tinges of citrus to refresh the participant, complimented fully by the crisp dry bitter finish." -- BrewDog

Aged in scotch casks.

"We set about to unite two of Scotland proudest heritages and produce a product which combined all that was good about Scotland’s whisky producing history and our contemporary take on a traditional Scottish style of stout. The fact that we have developed this product in conjunction with Duncan Taylor Ltd of Huntly means we mature our beer in the casks that once housed some of the most prestigious whiskies available today. The distinct flavours of these whiskies is beautifully infused into the beer giving a unique and unrivalled experience for both beer and whisky lovers. Paradox is produced in very small batches and each batch is bottled in a unique numbered limited edition bottle." -- BrewDog

BrewDog Brewery

"We are not a faceless corporate monstrosity. We have no mind numbing automatic production line. We are just two guys trying to make the best beer we can, and trying to make other people as passionate about fresh, natural, full flavour beers as we are. We have no multi-million advertising campaign trying to fool you into thinking drinking cheaply made bland beer will change your life. Perhaps you think multi-million pound advertising campaigns make beer taste better. We don't. We do not merely aspire to the proclaimed heady heights of conformity through neutrality and blandness. Quality ingredients are expensive, time consuming hand brewing methods are expensive, all the extra care required because we use no additives or preservatives is expensive. We don't care! Our goal is not to keep costs down, cut corners and then fool consumers into thinking this bland nonsense is actually good beer through an advertisement onslaught. Our goal is to make truly amazing fresh, natural beers and not to compromise on any level. Come and join us on a journey..." -- Brewdog

"Our artisan brewery is commited to making the highest quality traditional hand crafted ales all with contemporary innovative twists. Our beers are all hand brewed in small batches with a variety of speciality Scottish malt and imported hops. We have a 10 Barrel or 1600L Brewhouse where half a ton of malt is used to make a 1600 litre batch. The malt is added to the hot water in the mash tun. The wort (unfermented beer) is then transferred to the kettle where is it boiled for 90 minutes. During the boil hops are added for bitterness and aroma. We have 8 Cylindro-Conical uni-tanks, imported from Italy. These tanks act as fermentation tanks where the yeast turns the sugars in the beer into alcohol. After the fermentation these tanks are also used to condition and mature the beer. All our beers then go through a two stage filtration process before arriving at our bottling machine. The beer is then lightly carbonated which allows the flavours to come through before being bottled, capped, labelled and packaged. We are sure you will have as much fun drinking them as we had making them for you!" -- BrewDog
