Best Beer - 2006
Schlafly Scotch Ale
Astrological. Mayan. Chinese. Jewish. Roman. Whatever calendar you follow, tear it up and embrace Schlafly's calendar of seasonal beers. The highest of this calendar's High Holy Days falls in late January, when we devotees shake off our wind-chilled stupor and, as greedy as kids beneath the Christmas tree, rush to purchase the year's first Scotch Alethen, quickly, the year's second and third. Schlafly Scotch Ale has the body to stand up to hearty cold-weather fare, and its malty sweetness makes a perfect pairing with a toasty evening by the fire. Keep a bottle in the fridge till summer, and you'll get an icy, invigorating reminder that it's never too early to start planning for the holidays.
