Details

Famed for the great but more common Bitter and Twisted and Schiehallion, we believe Harviestoun's best beers are their darker Porters and Stouts. It's either in the pure Scottish water of the Ochi hills or something in the Scottish Malts, either way we love 'em. Their icon and mascot is a "fractious mouse" which appears on each of the labels and was apparently the inspiration for the first brew.

Bitter and Twisted is a classic English golden ale--and a former Champion Beer of Britain--with a superb hop profile of Hersbrucker, Challenger, and Styrian Goldings. Spicy, zesty, bitter and with a twist of lemon, this delicately carbonated ale finishes clean and dry. It's quite refreshing!

Founded in 1984 by Ken Brooker, Harviestoun Brewery eventually became a reality in 1986 when it received planning permission to convert a 200-year-old farm in Scotland into a brewery. Harviestoun Brewery focusses on brewing accessible beers with a high level of drinkability and have won multiple awards in the process!

Brewery Info

Harviestoun are about as Scottish as you can get - based in Clackmannanshire, they’ve been brewing small batch craft beer for over 30 years. They’re extremely innovative, and successful - rather impressively for a UK brewer, they’ve been a well-respected player on the US craft scene since 1999.

One of their most famous brews - Old Engine Oil Ola Dubh - is aged in whisky barrels and they’ve also created a special edition beer - Bitter & Twisted Zymatore - aged in gin and Pinot Noir barrels. For delicious session ales and lovely Scottish heritage, you can’t go wrong with Harviestoun.

This beer is all about the hops and carbonation mingling to provide a truly refreshing beer.

The pour releases a grapefruit nose with just a hint of something herbal and spicy, then on the tongue it’s tingly and thirst quenching and ends with a pleasant spike of citrus twist.
Very nice

Aroma is a nice balance of malt and citrus like character. Refreshing. Malt fronted flavor. Light beer, but plenty of flavor. Love the citrus going on.
