Do you fancy a hug in a can? Well you had better be quick because 71 Brewing’s limited edition offering won’t hang around for long.
The brewery, based in the city’s Bellfield Street, teamed up with Beers Without Beards (BWOB) to come up with Hug in a Can that is described as being true to its name.
“A boozy caramel shortcake imperial stout. Expect velvety smooth cacao complimented with rich caramel notes, a hug in a can!,” 71 Brewing promises.
However, the release is strictly limited so if you want to try it out you will need to be quick.
Caramel shortcake stout
Victoria Scott-Lewis, sales and marketing manager at 71 Brewing, explained: “International Women’s Craft Brew Day is an annual event which takes place on International Women’s Day, March 8.
“This year we collaborated with Beers Without Beards and brewed a caramel shortcake imperial stout.
“It was brewed by the women of 71 Brewing, led by one of the brewers, Taryn Bilsborough, and Amélie Tassin from BWOB joined us.
“This year all the proceeds from the beer will be going to Scottish Women’s Aid who we are delighted to support.”
Hug in a Can is now on sale and can be purchased through 71 Brewing’s website, their app and can also be found in few Scottish and English bottle shops.
Victoria added: “It is a super limited run so we don’t expect it to hang around for long.”
