August Beer of the Month – Belhaven Scottish Ale

CPW’s Beer of the Month
Belhaven Scottish Ale

One of my personal favorite beers we carry here at the winery in the ever so smooth, Nitro-Can!
The CO2 canister at the bottom of the can helps to give this beer its incredibly smooth head straight from the can.  Be sure to watch the tiny bubbles come to life as you pour!

Commercial description:
Malty and hoppy, we at Belhaven love the classic Scottish Ale and we’ve been brewing it longer than any of the other beers we produce. Delivering a sweet, smooth and creamy finish, Scottish Ale has a stunning ruby colour in the glass. Magic.

July 2012 Beer of the Month – Westmalle Trappist Ale Dubbel

Image from redsalehouse.com

Brewed by: Brouwerji Westmalle
Country: Belgium
Style: Dubbel
Alcohol by volume: 7.0%
Sale Price: $5.62 + tax

Beer description from brewery:

Westmalle Dubbel is a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced quality beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste. The Dubbel contains 7% alcohol.

Since 1856 the monks have also been brewing a dark Trappist beer along with their table beer. Since the recipe was modified in 1926, they have been brewing slightly heavier beer. This is the foundation of today’s Dubbel.
