As you'd expect from our sister brewery, Lia Fail is a deliciously dark, robust and full bodied beer. Pale Ale malt, Dark Crystal malt and Chocolate malt are beautifully balanced by aromatic hops. The addition of Challenger, Cascade and Fuggles hops is a masterstroke. They add a sumptuous smoothness to this deliciously malty amber ale.
The Challenger hops bring fruity notes while the Cascade hops bring a classic bitterness. Meanwhile, the earthy and woody notes of Fuggles add to a rich and full-bodied experience. This flavoursome beer is well-balanced, offering satisfying sweetness and chocolate notes.
Lia Fail’s name itself is Gaelic for “Stone of Destiny”. It's named after the famous red sandstone block on which Scottish monarchs have been crowned for centuries. Another name for the stone is the ‘Stone of Scone’. This is a reference to its historic home of Scone Palace in Perthshire. The region has been the home of Inveralmond Brewery since it was founded, in 1997.
