Scottish Ale

A Malty Nod to Alexandria’s History

ABV: 5.0%

Alexandria’s two Scottish founders, Captains Philip and John Alexander, inspired Port City’s Tartan Ale.  Produced in the Scottish 80-shilling style, Tartan favors complex malt character over hops, which don’t grow well in Scotland. It pours a dark copper to chestnut and serves as a showcase for British malt character, including a subtle fruitiness and notes of brown bread and toffee. The limited production Tartan Ale is our spring seasonal.
