Towering over Loch Ness and the Great Glen, the stones of Urquhart Castle played silent witness to 800 years of Scottish history. As the walls began to crumble in the 1700s, a new beer style was on the rise in the surrounding countryside: Wee Heavy or Strong Scotch Ale. Malty and slightly roasty with a deep amber color, this winter brew will warm you like a roaring fire in the great hall. At 9% ABV, Urquhart Wee Heavy is as strong as the great keep of its namesake castle. Lay siege to a pint today! Winter Release.
