This delicious beer from the small independent Windswept Brewery in Lossiemouth, Moray, Scotland has started to win a number of deserved rewards for its fabulous beer. We (and many others) believe this Typhoon is their best to date. A Single Hop Amarrillo IPA with a zesty light and moreish taste. Great for celebrating with when Scotland win.

Harviestoun Schiehallion

For those of you who prefer lager to ale, then this might be more your thing. A truly classic lager from one of the best small breweries in Scotland. Taking it's name from a famous mountain in Scotland, Schiehallion (pronounced "She-hal-i-on") is a stunning lager with elegant head and luscious lacing. It has the aromas and flavours of fresh-cut grass and brown sugar, a crisp palate and a lingering, fresh, grapefruity finish.
