Biere Scotch Silly 33cl
At the time of World War 1, outside of the city of Silly, a regiment of Scottish soldiers were stationed and they naturally requested a Scotch Ale from the brewery. Unfortunately, the brewers couldn't come up with the beer, because they hadn't mastered that beer style – and neither could they access the sugars necessary to brew it. A Scottish soldier called Jack Peyne helped develop this beer and, when the hostilities ended, he remained in the village, teaching the Silly brewers how to make a genuine Scotch ale. He continued working at the brewery for many years. That recipe created at the end of the First World War still stands to this day, and Kent Golding hops are still used.
Scotch de Silly stands out with sweet aromas of toffee, brown sugar, caramel and maple syrup with hints of hazel nuts. The beer develops this very sweet taste thanks to the candy sugar it is brewed with. In the background, you get a hunch of nuttiness. A classic Scotch ale that goes well with soups and stews.

Brasserie de Silly
One of the benefits of being a farm worker in Belgium was that you could drink beer on the job, although this was mainly because there was no clean drinking water. Brasserie de Silly is the product of this and thus came about so the farm could brew seasonal beers for their field workers.
Now six generations later, and still family owned, Brasserie de Silly has expanded into all traditional Belgian beer styles with a few surprises thrown in. Look out for the grapefruit enhanced Pink Killer and Burgundy barrel-aged Scotch.
