"Bere (or bigg) is a landrace 6 row barley variety that has a long history in Scotland. It’s “probably” the oldest cereal thay’s cultivated in the UK. Recently it’s almost all been grown up in Orkney and Shetland, but our malt comes from Paxton Home Farm in the Borders, and was malted by our pals at Simpsons Malt. This is our first Helles style beer, and brewed with 100% bere. We have a bit lower hopping rate to to squeeze as much bere character in there as possible."
