VICTOR, ID – Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for their exceptional craft brews, is proud to announce the release of Sheep Eater Scotch Ale, the third offering in their 2014 Cellar Reserve series.

Grand Teton Brewing Co.

Sheep Eater Scotch Ale was first brewed in 2009 and has become the Cellar Reserve most-requested for a comeback. Scotland's cold, blustery climate lends itself to the growing of barley and oats but not to the production of hops, which are almost always added sparingly. In order to create depth and diversity in the beers brewed in Scotland, malts were roasted and kilned to help bring out hidden flavors.

Scotch Ales are some of the world's most flavorful beers. The specially roasted and kilned malts used in the mash impart roasted, caramel, and raisin sweetness to the flavor profile. This ale is brewed with black roasted barley and peat-smoked malt, adding even more complexity to the palate. It is gently spiced with English hops, fermented cool and aged cold for exceptional smoothness.  The result is a copper-brown color and a pleasant mouthfeel and body.

Grand Teton Brewing ferments this beer colder than most ales so that they do not risk producing any flavors driven by yeast-produced esters. Instead, they want the malt to shine through and provide all the wonderful flavors Sheep Eater has to offer.

Drink this beer at cellar temperatures between 47-57 degrees Fahrenheit. The strong dark malts and high levels of alcohol will make this beer an ideal candidate for prolonged cellaring. Enjoy this beer with flavorful meats such as honey ham, well-marinated and grilled steaks, and roasted root vegetables lightly seasoned with salt. With dessert, try crème brûlée and a side of berries; the light and airy texture of the crème brûlée and tartness of the berries will balance nicely with the thick, sweet mouthfeel of Grand Teton Brewing’s Sheep Eater Scotch Ale.

Alcohol by Volume:  7.5% • Original Gravity (Plato): 22˚ P
