Limited Dixon Beer Tapping Tonight!
The limited Dixon Beer will be tapped Friday, January 6, 2012.
A Wee Heavy Scottish Ale aged in Whiskey Barrels. These are not just any whiskey barrels, but the ever-so-hard-to-get Ranger Creek Whiskey Barrels. It only seemed right to use these barrels for this Wee Heavy so that we can give it the deep, complex flavor details that only a whiskey barrel can provide – much like the design work that comes from 50 Foot Marketing and Design.
This collaboration began with Ray and Martha discussing – over a Faust beer – what type of beer they wanted to make, and then identifying the kind of beer that would mesh the Faust's independent brand and Dixon's character. With a Scottish name like Dixon, and Martha's preference for stronger beers, the Wee Heavy was a perfect choice. Not just any Scottish ale, a Wee Heavy is sweeter and fuller-bodied, and of course higher in alcohol, with much more pronounced malty caramel and roasted malt flavors.
Specialty beers of this type normally sell out in 2 days (or less), so get it while it's on tap! Learn more about the Faust beers in the Brewers Blog.
