A Note on This Beer
The season for scary movies, haunted houses, and trick-or-treating is FINALLY here. Which means it’s the perfect time to unveil the latest creation from Long Island’s horror-mongers at Nightmare Brewing: today’s Glasgow Smile Gose!
These macabre masters are all about historical accuracy, so here’s a quick history lesson: a Glasgow Smile is a knife wound on the sides of the mouth that the Scottish Razor Gangs performed in the 1930s. And as you can see from the gruesomely-awesome can art, it’s pretty gnarly.
It’s a name that only the phantom brewers at Nightmare could pull off with style. Their earthshaking 4.18 Untappd brewery rating puts them in the league of craft legends like Holy Mountain, Toppling Goliath, and fellow metalheads Adroit Theory!
And while the can might raise some goosebumps, it’s the unusual and exotic ingredients INSIDE that make this 6.7% ABV mouth-puckering sipper deserving of its 4.28 rating on UT! Just check out these tongue-teasing additions:
- Wild Scottish Bilberries: foraged from the Caledonian Forest in Scotland, these European blueberries pack the brew with tart n’ jammy notes.
- Scottish Heather: this small flowering shrub has been used in Scottish beer for over 5,000 years to give herbaceous, earthy notes to every sip.
- Black Sea Salt: imparts a savory salinity that balances the pucker for a champagne-dry finish.
These devilishly delicious flavors are sure to put a smile on your face…a real smile, that is. Especially since Nightmare’s small-batch sippers rarely cross New York state lines for anyone other than our members.
Bring this monster of a Gose to your Halloween party or scary movie marathon, and see which of your friends are brave enough to give it a taste!
