Description

71 Brewing has revived the art of brewing in Dundee after an absence of 50 years. We make beers we love to drink. Always creating, always innovating.

Brewed to showcase Crafty Maltsters ‘Laureate’ barley, home grown and malted in Auchtermuchty, Fife.

This 80/- is cool fermented with a historic yeast strain that gives a crisp clean flavour, with additions of Jester and Pioneer hops for a fruity, citrus edge.

Suitable for Vegans.

History Lesson

The shilling categories were based on the invoice price per hogshead (54 imperial gallons (250 L)) during the late 19th century.

Typically –

Light(60/-) was under 3.5% abv

Heavy(70/-) was between 3.5% and 4.0% abv

Export(80/-) was between 4.0% and 5.5% abv

Wee Heavy(90/-) was over 6.0% abv

The abv of this beer is 4.8% (i’ve checked) so it’s in the correct category !
