City Beverage, the Official Beer Sponsor of The Less Desirables, presents White Street Brewing Company’s “Scottish” Scottish-Style Ale, The Less Desirables Beer of the Week. White Street is from Wake Forest, NC and take pride in their crafted brews. We have had the Kolsch-style ale from White Street on The Beer Dads Podcast, but nothing by them on The Less Desirables. Well that will change tonight.
The beer, as described by a rep for the distributor, is a lighter version of Scottish-styled ale than what you’re probably used to finding. Well, I looked on BeerAdvocate.com and I think it’s pretty much down the middle of what it would be at 5.5% ABV. That’s pretty average for what is listed. Belhaven, probably one of the best-known in the states, is only 5.2% ABV. Now, if you get into some of the Wee Heavies and such, that’ a different story, but for regular Scottish-style ales, this is average in the ABV department.
Being as I’ve not had this before I can’t “pontificate” on anything about it other than I like Scottish Ales and I liked what I had from White Street in the past. So, I look forward to trying this brew! Have you had it before? What do you think? If you’ve not, then you should tune in tonight and hear what Caitlin, Eugene, Jim Moody, Jordan Googe and I think about this. Better yet, just go on down to City Beverage, located at 915 Burke Street in Winston-Salem and get your own sixer of White Street’s Scottish. That way you can listen to the show knowing we’re having the same beer as you. Plus, if you tell Spencer that you heard this was The Less Desirables Beer of the Week, you’ll get 5% off. Write us and give us your review; how many pints you’d rate it, and all.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Take a moment to imagine a small town. The post office buzzes, the local hardware store owner waters his plants and neighbors sit on their front porches waving at the folks they know – and the folks they don’t. What you feel right now, that’s the soul of White Street Brewing Company.” – From carton of White Street Scottish
