keg & bottled, special
In order to get the right balance of smokiness with a hint of chilli heat, quite a few experiments were conducted with chillies jammed in bottles of dark beer, and brews of chilli tea. Some of the early experiments were a bit on the spicy side; just ask our drayman Archie who got tricked into trying a bottle of Vital Spark that had been infused with a Habanero for over a week!
Vic, Andy and Marissa from Brewdog Glasgow came up to the brewery to brew their beer on what turned out to be a monster 11 hour brew day. The guys from Brewdog Glasgow quickly learned the basics of brewing; donít get stuck in the Mash Tun, and point the ends of hoses away from your face before turning on. They were put to work cleaning out the copper, loading the grist and digging out the mash tun, and of course a few beers were enjoyed throughout the day.
The beer was named 48 Miles Later, relating to the distance between the bar and the brewery, and will be launched, alongside the 11 other beers in the festival, in all Brewdog bars on Saturday the 19th with the Fyne Ales team doing a meet the brewer at Brewdog Glasgow from 5pm.
