Here is your Equity Punk exclusive opportunity to purchase Bitch Please Islay. In 2010 we brewed a beer with the scamps from the legendary Three Floyds craft brewery. We brewed a idiosyncratic Scottish Barley Wine with South Pacific Hops. Most of it was aged for 8 months in Jura cask. However, for the Islay edition we had only 3 ex Laphroig casks tucked away in our warehouse for over 18 months. The result is a tiny amount of bottles of one of the most extreme beers we have ever produced. Intensely peaty and smoky from the Islay cask ageing and with epic depth given the amount of time it spent in the oak. I am a collaborative brew. I am a messed up, idiosyncratic, schizophrenic son of a bitch. I would blame my parents. With the wolves of Three Floyds and pirates from BrewDog involved, the writing really was on the wall for me. Right from the start. Nick, Barnaby and Chris from the legendry Three Floyds visited BrewDog in August 2010 to brew this crazy beer. An inherently Scottish spin on a barley wine brewed with peated malts from Islay, shortbread, toffee and eclectic hops. After fermentation the beer was aged in Laphroaig casks for 18 months. All because of the Scamp Wolf of Badenoch. Bitch it up baby!
