STEVENSON, WA (December 14, 2016) – Walking Man Brewing is set to release the first in a series of seasonal offerings by bottling High Road Scotch Ale in 22 ounce bombers. This special release means fans will be able to have yet another Walking Man Brewing seasonal available at specialty craft retailers along the I-5 corridor north of Seattle through Portland and throughout the Columbia River Gorge.
High Road Scotch Ale was the third brew ever produced by Walking Man Brewing in 2001 by owner and brewmaster, Bob Craig. Inspired by the legendary Traquair House Ale, the big, malt flavor of this brew was originally intended to balance out Walking Man’s hop forward lineup. Brewed in the traditional style of Scotch Ales the deep copper High Road puts forth a rich mouthfeel with deep malt flavor reminiscent of the beers you would find in the northern U.K. In 2008 High Road Scotch Ale won one of most prestigious awards in the beer industry: a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival.
“I’m really excited to bottle the first of our seasonal beers and style wise get more of what we love to do into our fan’s hands”, said James Landers, Head Brewer.
