Yeastie Boys Hud-a-wa' Strong (330ml Bottle)
From a lineage of cryptic beer names. . . Hud-a-wa? is Scots for "hold the wall" and was the nickname of one of our great-great-grandfathers. He was a strong fella who once held up a wall while his workmates escaped from a collapsing mine. He?d have approved of this strong amber ale: rich and restorative, yet with enough hop to keep you coming back for more. As Hud-a-wa? would have said: "Here's tae us, wha's like us, damn few, and they?re a? deid. . . mairs the pity!
