Description: Enter the secret world of the brewer with a cocktail whose origins remain shrouded in mystery. The Hot Scotchy is among the rarest of drinks--sold for the first time in Arizona last year during Arizona Beer Week. Fans packed The Hungry Monk and Moto to get a sip of the Hot Scotchy. This year, the Arizona Society of Homebrewers (ASH) is bringing it back bigger and better.
The Scotchy is made (perhaps clandestinely in professional circles) by collecting a pint of the hot unfermented concentrated malt sugar of a beer mash (wort) and topping it off with a few ounces of Scotch. This may seem like a simple arrangement until you recall the many varieties of Scotch. Multiply that number by the thousands of grain combinations that comprise the 90 beer styles recognized by the Brewers Association and you begin to see the Scotchy’s unique potential.
This is a perfect opportunity to learn about homebrewing from the largest (and best) homebrewing clubs in the country. ASH members will be on hand to educate about brewing, beer styles and of course the Hot Scotchy!
