Williams Bros. Fraoch Ale

Williams Bros. Fraoch Ale

The original craft beer! Williams Bros. Fraoch Heather Ale is brewed according to a 4,000-year-old recipe. Made with heather and bogmyrtle, the taste is light with flavours of heather, herbs, spice, and perhaps peat coming through. Florals and berries come through on the nose. Finishing clean and smooth, this speciality ale is at once exotic and familiar. Give it a go!

William 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 William Bros beer was born!

  1. Oldie and goodie Review by Abdyman

    If this really is the beer they were brewing 4000 years ago I would be more than happy to jump back in time. The floral and herb notes make this a great drink which I think will be perfectly suited to sitting in the garden on a sunny summers day, just need a sunny summers day now! (Posted on 27/04/2015)

  2. Tour de Force Review by Ady Gray

    The oldest beer style still brewed today. This is quite simply magnificent. Floral, spicy, light. With its spice and herb style you could almost convince yourself you're drinking a medicinal herbal concoction. Then again, beer is medicinal. Isn't it...? (Posted on 27/02/2015)

  3. A floral delight Review by tehhaz

    Based on an ancient recipe, Williams Brothers have pulled off a delightful beer. The heather gives it a light, floral note which enhances the flavour without overpowering it in any way at all. (Posted on 22/02/2015)
