About Piper Down Scottish Ale

A Scottish ale with San Diego spirit.
Our Piper Down Scottish Ale hits all the right notes for the Ballast Point Bagpipe Corps that inspired it. We created this very low hopped, malty ale for the band to enjoy using UK Maris Otter malt, roasted barley, UK hops and low fermentation temperatures. Then we let the brew’s sweet complexity build over a three-hour boil. Full of roasted caramel flavor, it’s a pub classic with Ballast Point personality.

About Ballast Point

IT BEGINS WITH THE SEARCH FOR FLAVOR

The perfect balance of taste and aroma. An obsession with ingredients. An exploration of techniques. And while we savor the result, we’re just as fascinated by the process to get there. What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point.

WHERE SCIENCE MEETS ART

We live to add our own touch and ask if there’s a better way. As we tinkered, tested and tasted, we discovered that making beer was more art than science. And while we respect and honor tradition, we relish the opportunity to take it further. That freedom has allowed us to reinterpret brewing. And along the way help to reinvigorate the industry. From bringing a hoppy twist to a porter, or developing a proprietary yeast for our amber ale, to creating a breakthrough gold medal-winning IPA.

TO SHARE OUR JOURNEY

But all of this would be wasted if we couldn’t share it. Whether serving up new flavors, collaborating with seasoned brewmasters, or training the next generation at Home Brew Mart, we not only want to challenge our own tastes, but expand yours.

Ballast Point. Dedicated to the craft.
