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. Toffee sweetness and roasted coffee notes are balanced by fruity hops in Broken Dial, Harviestoun's zingy amber ale. Oats and wheat give a smooth, creamy body, while Celeia, Simcoe, Liberty and Citra hops burst with pithy orange, cut grass and peach before giving way to a lingering, mouth coating bitterness. Harviestoun Broken Dial won a bronze medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup in the category Ordinary or Special Bitter, and a Bronze Medal at the World Beer Awards 2015 in the category United Kingdom - Amber Pale Ale.

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.
