Still Time To Reserve A Brew For Scottish Fest

We’ve still got a few seats open for this weekend’s Scottish Fest. I’ve updated my list of suggested brews if you are having a hard time finding the right one to enter. They all fit the style and should be available at most liquor stores:

Belhaven McCallum’s Stout Scottish Ale
Sam Adams Irish Red
Great Divide Claymore Scotch Ale
Smithwicks
Tyranena Sheep Shagger Scotch Ale
Harpoon Celtic Ale
Bluegrass Brewing Co. Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale
Murphy’s Irish Red Ale
Black Swan Scottish Ale
Saranac Irish Red Ale
Belhaven St. Andrew’s Ale

All entries must fit within BJCP guidelines for style. There are some great Scottish ales out there, but finding them may be tricky. Remember that Irish Red ales also fit the style. Here are links to Beer Advocate’s listing by subcategory: Scottish Ale (includes 60/-, 70/-, and 80/-), Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy, and Irish Red Ales.
