Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions 1

In what way are Muckle beers artisan?

All Muckle beers are brewed in very small batches (approx. 220 litres). These beers do not leave the brewery for any off-site post processing. Brewing, bottling, bottle conditioning, labelling and packaging all take place in the Brewery. The beers are un-filtered, therefore retain all the delicious notes and aromas from the grain and hops. They are naturally carbonated, without the need for additional CO2

Frequently Asked Questions 2

How should I store and pour my beer?

Muckle beer is best stored at 11-13 degrees: so perhaps store in your garage or the coldest room in the house. If refrigerated, you may wish to delay pouring the beer for half an hour. At fridge temperature you can notice a chill haze and find the beer appears less lively when poured. Unfiltered beer retains a small amount of natural sediment in the bottle. Pour as one from a height, retaining the sediment in the neck of the bottle
