Asheville, NC — Hooligan Scotch Ale returns a wee bit early this holiday season – just in time to leave its indelible mark on 2016. This robust, mahogany hued ale is brewed in the classic Scottish Wee Heavy style, featuring a profound maltiness with layers of rich caramel and toffee, and a restrained hop bitterness. To commemorate five years of Hooliganism, this limited release will graduate to 22oz bottles – Catawba’s first ever bottle release from its rotating series of seasonal beers. Look for Hooligan Scotch Ale in Catawba’s three tasting rooms, and in distribution in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee (beginning January 2017), and in select areas of Alabama.

For their special Hooligan beer release party at Catawba’s Asheville South Slope brewery (32 Banks Ave) on Thursday, December 15, wear your ugly holiday sweater to compete for prizes. Meanwhile, Catawba staff members will serve up chili to hungry hooligans, who will vote to crown the best chili chef. And while you’re there, pick up your special collector’s edition Hooligan 22oz bottles dipped in red wax and date stamped 2016. At 8% ABV, Hooligan will age well for vertical tastings in years to come.
