The Broombridge Wee Heavy
A return to Broom Bridge. Nestled in the western part of Cabra, a suburb of Dublin and where our brewery began. The Broom Bridge was built to cross the Royal Canal, eventually it was expanded to include the railway line. Not only is it famous for being the location where we started Post Card Brewing company, but it is also famous for being the location where Sir William Rowan Hamilton first wrote down the fundamental formula for quaternions. Probably not as complex as our Wee Heavy recipe, but an important contribution to Maths just the same.
The style Wee Heavy comes from Scotland and is named after the strength of the beer. Our Wee Heavy comes in at 7.5% and has a strong, dark, and malty taste with little hop character and moderate carbonation. The malty aroma meets with a toffee and caramel flavour, but as the beer warms more complex flavours and aromas can be noticed.
