Tater Ridge, a Scotch Ale (Asheville Brewers Alliance)

Sierra's new brewery is just outside of Asheville, North Carolina so it should come as no surprise that their beer brewed in conjuction with the Asheville Brewers Alliance would capitalize on a local ingredient. Tater Ridge utilizes  local sweet potatoes in a Scotch Ale. We weren't able to detect any flavors that the sweet potatoes contributed, but the base beer was everything we'd expect in a Scotch Ale - big malt flavors and aromas with some caramelized and burnt sugar character and a hint of plum.
