The Haven is delighted to have a new beer in the line up from a great Scottish Independent Brewer.

Broughton Ales is a brewery located in the Scottish borders and has a great line up of beers, we will be sampling some of            them over the upcoming months.

First up is the following. We thought we would lead off with their venerable Wee Heavy. A lovely beer for sure:

  Old Jock Ale abv 6.7%

A classic Scottish Strong Ale. Named after the soldiers of the Highland and Lowland Scottish regiments, this ale has a full-bodied flavour of malt on an excellent background of hop bitterness.

A drink to savour.

The soldiers of the Highland and Lowland regiments of Scotland are known as “The Jocks”.

This classic Scottish Strong Ale with its strong warming flavours of malt and hops, is a fitting tribute to these powerful fighting men.

A drink to be savoured at room temperature.

Silver medal winner in BBI competition 2004. 

Full-bodied and warming with the characteristic estery, fruity flavour associated with strong beers. The balance to the sweetness of the alcohol is created by the use of an excellent hop bitterness.

Old Jock is a classic Scottish Ale and like all strong ales is best enjoyed at room temperature 10-12°C.

Major ingredients are:-

Optic Pale Ale Malt, Roast Barley.Hops used are English grown Challenger, Fuggles and first Gold.
