Union Series #7

120 Shilling Export Scotch Ale

Brewed with Scottish base malt, roasted malts from England, and the pure Irish passion of Summit’s Head Brewer Damian McConn, our seventh Union Series brew is a 120 Shilling Export Scotch Ale — an homage to the malty, complex beers Damo enjoyed as a brewing student in Edinburgh, Scotland. Inspired by a 19th-century recipe and brewed with modern, experimental hop varieties, this powerful ale is deep ruby in color with aromas of toffee, Scotch whisky and baking spice, while rich flavors of dark fruit and caramel lead to a long, warming finish.

Available for a limited time in 4-packs of 12-oz. bottles. Find it here, beginning November 2018.

19th-Century Scotland Must’ve Been Delicious
Established in 2013, the small-batch Summit Union Series allows Head Brewer Damian McConn to scour the globe for obscure hops and malts as he looks to marry new and modern ingredients with time-honored brewing traditions. Following a huge Imperial Russian Stout in 2017, McConn is eager to continue the series in 2018 with a rare and unique 120 Shilling Export Scotch Ale.
