Beer Description

Inspired by the classic cocktail, Blood & Sand, this lightly peat-smoked wheat ale is redolent of blood orange and cherry flavors. Complex, delicious!

This lightly smoked wheat beer was inspired by the Blood and Sand, one of the few classic mixed drinks that includes Scotch. The cocktail was named for Rudolph Valentino’s 1922 bullfighter movie (and why we call this beer Last Matador). The red juice of the blood orange in the drink helped link it with the film. We used peat-smoked malt to replicate the flavors of the Scotch. But it’s the blood orange that dominates the flavor profile. A hint of cherry makes this a complex, yet easy drinker.
