The new year has not started yet, and we already know what the first OneHitter Series release from Lagunitas Brewing Co. will be.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the Petaluma, Calif.-based brewery will be releasing Davey Murray’s Best Scotch Ale, an 8 percent ABV Scotch ale. The new beer part of Lagunitas’ OneHitter Series, which include “unique, strange, Lagunitas one-off” beers.
“O dude ale comes and rude ale goes…We owe deep graitiduebd to the Bard of Ayrshire for this ale’s epitaph: Whether thy soul soars fancy’s flight, or on this earthy whole in low pursuit, know water barley, hops and yeast is Davey Murray’s root,” reads the beer label. The name and description on the label refers to Robert Burns, a sixteenth century Scottish poet whose best known works include Auld Lang Syne, Scots Wha Hae and A Red, Red Rose, among others.
Davey Murray’s Best Scotch Ale will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery was not immediately returned.
