Beer Description:
The Auld Allance was an alliance forged between Scotland and France, lasting from 1295 until 1560 when the Treaty of Edinburgh was enacted. And it’s also the namesake of an ale that was collaborated on by two of Tampa Bay’s elite breweries.

Cigar City Auld Alliance (Cigar City Brewing; Tampa, FL; Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy; ABV: 8.5) is a limited edition collaboration between the Tampa brewery and Dunedin Brewery. Described as a Biere de Scotch Ale, it has the characteristics of a wee heavy and biere de garde. Auld Alliance pours a deep chestnut brown color, with notes of sweet caramel and roasted malt typical of a Scotch Ale complimented by notes of sour fruit and grassy hops characteristic of a farmhouse ale. Very smooth and well balanced from start to finish, Auld Alliance also has a hint of nuttiness and spices in the backbone, making this ale as intriguing as it is enjoyable.
