Portland Brewing’s Scottish Festival is back again to launch fall seasonal Noble Scot Ale. The family-friendly affair features traditional Scottish dance, bagpipe performances, highland games, face painting, a photo booth, live music from local Celtic fusion band, Beltaine, and of course, Portland Brewing’s Noble Scot Ale. The outdoor celebration is free to attend and all ages are welcome. This year, Celtic music media company, 67 music, will be emceeing the event.
The return of Noble Scot is a nod to Grant’s Scottish Ale, one of the first beers that Portland Brewing founders Fred Bowman and Art Larrance brewed together in 1986. Nobel Scot Ale is a combination of 2-Row Pale and Smoked Carapils malts that create notes of caramel and toast. The easy-to-drink ale is crafted using roasted barley and Melanoidin, Northern Brewer, East Kent Goldings, and Willamette hops. “Fall is some of the best weather in Oregon and we’re so excited to celebrate with this beer and our history,” said Head Brewer, Ryan Pappe. “The slightly higher ABV is a great way to enjoy the cooler months.” The beer comes in at ABV: 6.5% | IBU 25
To top off the Scottish celebration, Portland Brewing will encourage attendees to participate in Scottish traditions including trying their hand at old Scottish sports such as the caber toss.
