Gilt Lifter has arrived
Fans of Kilt Lifter, say hello to Gilt Lifter. Today we launch Gilt Lifter Scottish Light Ale, a beer featuring all the bold, malty flavor of Kilt Lifter in a 99-calorie package.
“There are dozens of beers out there that claim to be “light” or low in calories, but they’re basically all versions of the same low-flavor beer,” says Andy Ingram, Four Peaks’ co-founder and head brewer. “Gilt Lifter is different. This isn’t just a watered-down version of Kilt Lifter; this is an entirely new recipe.”
Our brewers designed Gilt Lifter to fit within a beer style called ‘Scottish Light Ale,’ which is traditionally low in alcohol but high in malt character. The beer boasts smooth, toasty flavors but contains just 99 calories per 12-ounce serving.
“You don’t find many beers this drinkable with this much flavor,” Ingram says. “There’s a Scottish phrase I like: ‘Guid gear comes in sma’ bulk.’ It means ‘good things come in small packages,’ and it couldn’t be more appropriate for describing a beer like Gilt Lifter.”
Gilt Lifter will begin shipping in 6-packs, in 15-packs, and on draft throughout our distribution footprint this week. It will also be included inside special variety packs we’ll be rolling out later this year. Lift them wherever you see them.
