Beer of the Week: Claymore Scotch Ale

In case you're not up on your Scottish vernacular, a claymore is a medieval two-handed longsword.

While it didn't take two hands to hoist this 7.7% ABV brew, the Great Divide Brewing Co. beer does have heft. It's said to be a tribute to the "Wee Heavy," a charming term that refers to Scotch strong ales. Malty and sweet—a nice winter choice.
