A batch over two years in the making, 2015 Le Fat was a scotch ale, but is a scotch ale no more. Belgian influences from a host of micro-organisms sour the once-sweet Fat Scotch Ale. Hints of fig, plum, and cherries occur naturally as a result. Over time the ale softens and mellows while gaining refinement and character through extended aging in oak barrels once used for winemaking.

Le Fat will be the first-ever Silver City Brewery beer to be released in 500ml packaging, a new standard for the barrel-aged series. Finished with a foil seal and a pearlescent label, the understated elegance is matched to the delicate nature of the flavors contained within.

A passion project for Silver City Brewery, brewmaster Don Spencer had this to say about Le Fat, "Each release of Le Fat is a true labor of love for the brew team and myself. There are so many man hours, components, and steps that go into the process of creating this sour ale." He added, "To see Le Fat in its beautiful bottle, prepared for presentation after the long development process is personally very exciting. We've anxiously waited months, even years, and and are pleased to finally share this unique creation with our fans!"
