Icelandic Wee Heavy Scottish Ale
Surrender your taste buds to our Icelandic Wee Heavy. A Scottish Ale brewed with locally farmed and smoked barley and spiced with native Icelandic angelica. Over a thousand years ago the Vikings invaded Scotland, now with a creamy head and a sweet malt aroma they are returning to conquer your tongue with caramel notes and a savory smoke.
What is Angelica?
Angelica is considered a holy plant. It grows hearty, strong, and cold resistant in Iceland. Legend has it that a monk in England, during the 17th century when the country was riddled with plague, was visited by an angel who told him angelica would relieve the people’s suffering. When the Vikings began trade expeditions to Europe, they brought along dried angelica for currency.

This isn’t the only locally farmed ingredient you’ll find in this rich sweet drink. We use only the best locally farmed barley that is smoked to perfection.
