Image(s) of the Day: Black Isle, Scotland, U.K.
Scotland, like many other parts of the world, is in the midst of a craft brewing revolution. In the north, just outside of Inverness, lies Black Isle and the all-organic brewery of the same name. The operation is fairly isolated on a farm in an area where there are far more sheep—black sheep, at that—than people. In winter, driving there can be a treacherous journey, but ultimately a rewarding one. Among Black Isle’s brews are Red Kite Ale, Blonde, Smoked Porter, Hibernator Oatmeal Stout, Goldeneye Pale Ale and Big Butt Oak-Aged Barleywine.
