Scottish craft brewer releases new fruit beer and IPA

Harviestoun IPA

Scotland’s Harviestoun Brewery has launched two new bottled beers: Raspy Engine, a raspberry-infused black ale, and Harviestoun IPA, made using American citrus hops.

Raspy Engine, created by head brewer Amy Cockburn, was inspired by a trip to a nearby fruit farm. Using the brewery’s popular Old Engine Oil black ale as a base, Amy added whole, fresh Scottish raspberries.

Rich and velvety in taste, it has a sharp and fruity finish. Likened to a grown-up dark chocolate and raspberry pudding with elegant red fruit notes, it is being launched under Harviestoun Brewery’s Wee Beastie experimental collection. Its ABV is 5.3% ABV.

Harviestoun IPA, at 5.8% ABV, is made using American citrus hops Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Apollo. It is an authentic American-style IPA with plenty of long-lasting flavour. It has been given a superior body, allowing the hops to sing, and is made using high-quality malted barley.

Both beers are available now in 330ml bottles.

Based in Alva, Harviestoun Brewery produces a range of lagers and ales including the bestselling Schiehallion craft lager, Bitter & Twisted golden ale, and its unique collaboration with Highland Park distillery, Ola Dubh ale, matured in whisky casks.
