We seem to recall that, back in the depths of time when GABS was merely the Great Australian Beer Spectapular held at the Local Taphouses rather than the behemoth that now bestrides the Royal Exhibition Building, one of the highlights was a rich, multi-layered malty number from 4 Pines going by the name Wee Heavy. So this, we assume, can be taken as some sort of relation of said beer. Its big, musclebound older brother perhaps, as while we remember the previous one rocking in at around seven per cent (exits Rainman mode), this is a rather larger affair. It's a 9.5 per cent strong Scotch Ale brewed in honour of St Andrew's Day and if you head along on the night of the launch (November 30) there are prizes on offer. Namely, they're giving a free Wee Heavy to anyone who proves their Scottish heritage, wears a kilt or can hold a conversation in a Sean Connery like accent.
