Beer: Gilt Lifter now Out!

Fans of Kilt Lifter, say hello to Gilt Lifter. Four Peaks Brewing Co., Arizona’s largest brewery, announced today the launch of 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.”

Four Peaks’ 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 be available in 6-packs, in 15-packs, and on draft throughout Four Peaks’ distribution footprint. It will also be included inside special variety packs the brewery plans to launch later this year.
