Williams Brothers Kelpie

Historically Scottish coastal alehouses brewed with malted barley that was grown in beds of seaweed. This environment gave the barley a very specific flavour. The brewers at Williams Bros. reproduced this by adding fresh seaweed to the mash tun! There is an evident briny seaweed characteristic alongside rich roasted malt and chocolate notes in this smooth dark ale.

Williams Brothers started off as a homebrew shop in Glasgow until a day in 1988 when a lady wandered in with a recipe for an ancient Scottish heather ale. After several trials the famous "Fraoch," and thus Williams Brothers--the brewery--was born. Initially focussing on historic Scottish ales, Alloa-based Williams Bros. has grown to 25 recipes including some fantastic limited editions and collaborations.

Williams Bros started off as a home brew shop in Glasgow and were ticking along quite happily until 1988 when one day a lady wandered in with a recipe. The recipe was in Gaelic for leann fraoch (heather ale) and had been handed down through the generations, but she didn't know how to brew it.  The two got together and after a period of experimentation the first Williams Bros beer was born!

    Surprisingly refreshing for such a "black" beer. (Posted on 16/11/2012)
