Beer Description

We’re playing host to the Flag Day Burger & Beer Festival for the third year in a row. This event is one of our favorites, in that it benefits great causes in Pet Helpers and The Charleston Animal Society, and it brings two fun classes of folks together: local brewers, and local burger makers. While some folks could see us as competitors, we’re more like compatriots.
To celebrate the “Burger” part, we’ve brewed a low ABV, smoky Scotch Ale, chock full of body and with just enough smoky character to complement your grilled patty of choice. The original idea was to name this beer for the one the first cows in the Angus breed line, Old Granny. Fortunately, our trusty brewer Tim “Manuel Fantastico” Bettencourt did what he always does: he made things fantastic. He related the story perfectly, but changed the name from Old Granny to Old Lightning in his version. Makes sense.
