A Note on This Beer
Good evening, America. I’m Ron Beergundy, and you’re reading Tavour Network News.
This just in from the Pacific Northwest: craft fans are shivering with anticipation over the return of Big Magnificent Bastard from Washington’s Silver City Brewery.
PNW natives wait all year for the 12x GABF Award-winning crew at Silver City to bring this Scotch Whisky Barrel-Aged Scotch Ale back into their lives.
And by the beard of Zeus, so do I!
It’s the kind of distinguished drink you want to have in your hand at all times during those upcoming holiday parties. It’s the surest way to let all the Scotch Ale fans and Barrel fiends around you know that you’re kind of a big deal — people know you.
Because, according to eyewitness reports, the level of Scotch excellence in Big Magnificent Bastard really is a big deal!
And it’s all thanks to aging the Scotch Ale base in those Scotch Whisky Barrels. This results in the tantalizing, 9.9% ABV glass of straight-up single malt Scotch, full of sherry-like notes, caramelly smoothness, and earthy peat. And if that doesn’t sound smooth enough already, spending that precious time in Scotch Barrels renders the mouthfeel into pure silk.
Great Odin’s raven, America! I wouldn’t mind spending some time in a Scotch Barrel myself if it meant I would come out that delicious.
In all seriousness though, folks, Big Magnificent Bastard is one heckuva top-notch Scotch Ale. In fact, it’s one of the Scotchy, Scotch, Scotchiest Scotch Ales I have ever had!
And with a 4.12 Untappd rating, I know I’m not the only one who thinks so.
But this beautiful brew is only available once a year. So please, stop what you’re doing and listen to me: it’s time to ‘Get It’!
As always, I’m Ron Beergundy with Tavour Networks News — thank you for tuning in, America.
