Renaissance Enlightenment WIREcutter (500ml Bottle)
To celebrate our years together we have done one final collaboration which is a meld of our two famous flagship beers, Stonecutter and Hopwired.
Wirecutter is therefore a Scotch Ale with big malt, huge amounts of New Zealand hops and a nice hint of smokiness.
A fitting way to cut the cord!
Scotch Ale was the name given to a strong pale ale from Edinburgh in the 19th century. This was typical of the strong pale ales brewed in Britain at that time - mainly pale barley malt and moderate hopping, and were not that stylistically different to English Strong Ales or Barley Wines. The name however became regionalised so that a strong pale ale from Scotland became known as a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Beers using the designation Scotch Ale are popular in the USA where most examples are brewed locally. Examples of beers brewed in the USA under the name Wee Heavy tend to be 7% abv and higher, while Scottish brewed examples, such as Belhavens Wee Heavy, are typically between 5.5% and 6.5% abv.
