StillFire Kilt Chamberlain Scotch Ale

Available on draft and in 16-ounce cans

Profile

Kilt Chamberlain, a multi-award-winning Scotch Ale brewed by StillFire brewmaster Phil Farrell, most recently won a Bronze Medal at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival.

A traditional style from the Scottish Highlands, where malt was more readily available than hops, Farrell’s version features a grain bill with Golden Promise, caramel malt, and bit of peat malt, plus Golden hops, and a Scottish yeast strain.

The result is a complex blend of caramel, dark fruit, and chocolate aromas and flavors, with a hint of smoke. At 8.8% alcohol, Kilt Chamberlain is a strong beer that will warm you up during the cooler fall weather ahead.

Pair with

Try Kilt Chamberlain with hearty beef, venison, duck or pheasant dishes, or for dessert with flan or creme brûlée.
