A wee heavy is a classic Scottish strong beer but this collaboration between Tempest Brewing Co and Beer Hawk takes on a completely different dimension. The brewers have cleverly blended a classic beer style with a classic dessert. Cranachan is that delectable affair with raspberry, toasted oats, honey and a bit of whisky. The resulting beer blends these sumptuous flavours with a hit of alcohol. It celebrates raspberries but never overwhelms.
The Tempest Brew Co. dream started when husband and wife team Annika (of New Zealand) and Gavin (of bonny Scotland) met while working at a brewpub in Canada. They moved to New Zealand and Gavin started brewing with whatever kit he could get his hands on. Inspired by the fresh NZ hops, he created what was their first beer, <a href="https://www.beerhawk.co.uk/tempest-brew-co-long-white-cloud">Long White Cloud</a> which is still being made to this day!
A move back to bonny Scotland and a stint as restaurateurs was the final stage before opening the doors at Tempest Brew Co. And my, did they come out a-swinging! Winning multiple awards across Europe, they’ve become a force to be reckoned with and, with beer this good, we’re not at all surprised! Brewing up a storm to rival The Tempest itself, a Tempest beer is always a good choice!
