Commercial descriptionThe brewer markets this same or near-same product by more than one names. This can be the result of a brewer distributing this beer under different names in different countries, or the brewer simply changing the name, but not the recipe at different points in time.
Terrapin Brewing returns for a second year as a production partner for Reunion ’10. We brew Reunion each year in memory of our dear friend and partner in this venture - Virginia MacLean. Virginia lost her battle with Multiple Myeloma in 2007. It was her wish that we continue to raise funds and awareness on behalf of The Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research (www.imbcr.org).
This year’s beer is a Belgian-style Scotch Ale - a nod to Virginia’s Scotch heritage. The beer boasts a deep amber color with a rich malt palate and subdued hop notes in the finish. We used an authentic Trappist Belgian yeast strain for complexity and it is brewed to an original gravity of 1078 and has 30 units of bitterness.
Many thanks to all who have supported this project and helped us honor Virginia’s memory.
Cheers - Pete & Alan
