The clocks have gone forward, daffodils are sprouting and there's even a wee bit of sunshine, it must be the changing of the seasons.
Jehad Hatu runs the Grunting Growler, one of Glasgow's best take home craft beer shop, which offers samples, tasting events, a dazzling array of bottled beers and the eponymous growlers (refillable glass jugs) for which the shop is named.
To toast the end of a long, dark winter, we asked Jehad to pick us five of the best Scottish craft beers to enjoy this spring.
(Tempest Brewing, Tweedbank, Galashiels)
Jehad says: "It's not possible to have a spring beer list without a Saison. The beer is light and sessionable, and yet still very complex.
"Easy going bread malts on the palate, with a refreshing dry and peppery finish."
(Fyne Ales, Cairndow)
Jehad says: "Sours are an absolute must once the weather starts to get warm. The beer is brewed with a natural bacteria called lactobacillus which makes it refreshingly tart and acidic.
"The beer is then fermented on berries in order to counterbalance some acidity, and add a bit of depth to the beer."
Style: Raspberry Berliner Weisse
(Pilot Beer, Edinburgh)
Jehad says: "It goes without saying that sunny weather is made for wheat beers, and Pilot have made an absolute banging one that has been brewed with Parma Violets.
"Yeah, it totally sounds weird, but it's damn great!"
Style: Hefeweizen infused with Parma Violets
(Cromarty Brewing Company, Davidston, Cromarty)
Jehad says: "This is one for the folks that don't want to give up the dark beers just yet. A black IPA is a beer that has been brewed with a de-husked dark malt, so it gives the appearance of a dark beer, but not necessarily all of the huge roasted flavours of one.
"And then it's been heavily hopped to give it the flavours we all love when it comes to India Pale Ales."
Style: black IPA
(Out of Town Brewing/Grunting Growler collab.)
Jehad says: "A collaboration to celebrate our shop's 1st birthday. This beer is a big juicy IPA coming in at 6.3% abv, that has been brewed with the juice and zest of a whole lotta blood oranges, and then we added some lactose to give it a sweet, and silkie mouth feel.
"A limited release that is getting launched on 1 April - it's definitely not to be missed!"
Style: Blood Orange IPA
