About the beer:
Wickliffe Peat Ale
To celebrate St Andrew’s Day Emerson’s have brewed a smoked amber ale.
With a low bitterness, the peat smoke at the forefront gives way to a malty caramel-like sweetness, giving a delicate yet complex flavour.
Emerson’s is based at Wickliffe Street in the harbourside area and The John Wickliffe was the vessel that brought the first Scottish settlers to Dunedin, arriving at Port Chalmers on 23 March 1848.
Served on Handpump – exclusively at Albar, Dunedin
