Max St. Mungo 90 Shilling Scotch Ale


Brewed by Max Lagers
Atlanta, Georgia USA
Style: Scotch Ale | Ratings: 13 | Alcohol: 9%
St. Mungo has a sweet malt character achieved by boiling the “heavy” first runnings of the mash along with dark brown sugar to caramelize the sugars. This complex caramel character is accented by a faint smokiness in the finish. English East Kent Golding hops round out this extremely drinkable, full-bodied ale. Served unfiltered.
IBU 18 ABV 9% O.G. 22.5º Plato
Our "wee heavy" scotch ale recipe name in honor of Glasgow’s Patron Saint - St. Mungo. Saint Mungo established a religious brotherhood in Glasgow in 540 AD. One of the brothers started brewing to supply his fellow monks, establishing brewing as one of the oldest industries in Glasgow. Since Max’s St. Mungo has come in at approximately 9% ABV, we have declared it a "90 Shilling" Scotch Ale. And in keeping with our Drink Beer Do Good campaign, Fifty Cents of every St. Mungo sold will be contributed to the Gateway Center for the Homeless and the Atlanta Union Mission.
