Given the way brewers at home and, even more so, overseas are pushing the bounds of how high alcohol content can be taken in a beer, the Moonshine's 8.5% might not turn too many heads today. When it was first made by Grand Ridge more than two decades it stood out from the crowd and still stands the test of time as a massively malty Strong Scotch Ale to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace late in the day. It also warrants the best line in any of Grand Ridge's tasting notes: "Enjoy with a lover and chocolates of the highest calibre." Ooh, matron!
