Completing the Wolf Pack is Tundra, a wheat beer dry-hopped with elderflowers to give a fresh, citrus and floral flavour with a light dry palate provided by Bavarian yeast.

Packaged in a an attractive gift pack , the 500ml bottles and glass make a great gift for any drinker, and can be ordered online direct from the brewery website priced at £14.99 including delivery for one pack,  or three gift packs can be purchased for £34.99 including delivery.

Another festive offering to raise a glass to this Christmas is the 1488 Gift Pack. This pack contains three 500ml bottles of the award winning 1488 whisky beer which is specially made in collaboration with Tullibardine Distillery.

Florida Black

ABV: 4.5% Colour: Black

As smooth and silken as our American cousin the Florida Black Wolf, this stout is packed with flavours of sweet, treacley chocolate and complemented by smokey, toasted wild oats.

Gold Digger

ABV: 4.2% Colour: Blonde

As bright and golden as a shiny nugget, this citra hopped blonde beer is bursting with grapefruit and peach flavours. Savour it, don’t wolf it!


ABV 4.8%

No mucking about – this is a wild animal of a wheat beer. Dry-hopped with elderflowers to give a fresh, citrus and floral flavour with a light dry palate provided by Bavarian yeast. Gold Medal Winner at the prestigious World Beer Awards 2014


ABV 7%

This strong Scotch Ale style beer is the product of a partnership between the Black Wolf Brewery and Tullibardine distillery. The name 1488 was chosen in remembrance of the year King James IV celebrated his coronation and purchased beer from the brewery which was situated where the Tullibardine Distillery is today.
