The summer is a great time to try a little variety in your beer selection for family BBQs. Four Peaks Brewing Co. is looking to help you satisfy your tastes and deliver some great food with a brand new smoker in their contest. More on the contest below. As for the beer, Four Peaks is offering up Kilt Lifter, which is their Scottish-style ale. Kilt Lifter is crafted in the tradition and honor of the great strong ales of Scotland.
As Four Peaks notes, you will take one sip of this ale and you will swear it had been brewed by men in kilts. It is a full-bodied ale with pronounced flavors of caramel and roasted barley. You will notice its amber color, malty sweetness and a hint of smokiness with a clean dry finish. That is a true Scottish-style ale.
As you enjoy Kilt Lifter at your next BBQ or maybe at the camping grounds, you will notice the sweet biscuit aroma that follows the overall flavor. It is a clean and balanced ale. This is serious malt bomb that packs tons of toasted malt up front which is then followed by lots of caramel and brown sugar.
Four Peaks recommends pairing this ale with BBQ, smoked meats, wild game, duck, Jarlsberg, edam, gruyere and manchego cheese at your next BBQ gathering. Be sure to try a variety of combination with Kilt Lifter as you share with friends over some laughs on a hot summer night.
The folks you invite to your backyard barbecue deserve better than meat cooked on an old, busted-up grill or smoker. So, if interested try your luck at winning a grill from Four Peaks. This summer, they are giving a few lucky Four Peaks fans a serious upgrade to their grill-out game with shiny new smokers from Green Mountain Grills. We’re calling it the Grills On, Kilts Up Contest.
If you want to win, you just need to post a picture of your dirty old grill or smoker on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, then tag Four Peaks. You then have to use the hashtags #upgrademybbq and #contestAZ, #contestCA, #contestCO, #contestHI, #contestNM, #contestNV, or #contestTX (depending on the state you live in). You could win a smoker guaranteed to make you the envy of all the other grillmeisters on the block.
