Beer Tasting Details:

Strange Land Atholl BroseAtholl Rose- Scotch Ale / Honey, Oats, Whisky & Oak – Firken – In 1475, the 1st Earl of Atholl vanquished his enemies after filling their well with an intoxicating mixture of Scotch whisky, oats and honey. This legend has been kept alive by the equally legendary whisky concoction known as Atholl Brose. Drawing inspiration from this tradition, we’ve crafted our Scotch ale with Central Texas Wildflower honey, flaked oats, and oak infused with a blend of single malt Scotch whiskies.


Strange Land EntireEntire – Porter – Draft – Step into 18th century London with an Entire, the original Porter. Unlike weaker table beers, the Entire was historically brewed with the full runnings of the mash, providing a deep, rich flavor. Our re-creation honors this tradition by combining dark malts with British hops and yeast. Delicate chocolate notes accent its full body and spicy hop character.
Strange Land PloighsharePloughshare – Saison- Draft – Refreshing and invigorating, Saisons were originally brewed for seasonal workers on Belgian farms in Wallonia. Ploughshare is light and dry, with a subtle sweetness from malted wheat–perfect to slake your thirst as you come in off the field.
