Beer of Death IIPA

By far, the Beer of Death is the largest, heaviest, hoppiest beer we’ve ever tried to brew. We would be lying to say it turned out exactly as planned, but if the name itself does not make you want to have a taste, the alcohol content and IBUs might.

The label was inspired by a tombstone in a graveyard at the foot of Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.
