NEW YORK, NY Sept. 26, 2016  Highland Park and Sixpoint Brewery have teamed up to create two limited-edition beers, each formulated to complement Highland Park whisky perfectly. The two new beers, RUNE and SKÖLL will be unveiled at the inaugural Scotchtoberfest event in New York on September 27. 

"Highland Park has been leading the charge in the whisky and beer pairing space for the last year with its Dram and Craft initiatives," said Gordon Motion, Highland Park Master Distiller. "Highland Park is proud to collaborate with Sixpoint to offer fans a chance to try two limited edition brews that perfectly pair with our single malt Scotch whiskies."

RUNE, which pairs with Highland Park 12 Year Old, is a golden oat ale with honey malts that provide a subtle sweetness to emphasize the honey and heather notes in the Scotch. Heather tips added near the end of the boil give the beer a hint of floral aroma.

SKÖLL is a dark and roasty ale with rich chocolate and coffee notes from chocolate and black malts, which complements the maraschino cherry and warm dark chocolate flavors of Highland Park Dark Origins. Sweet cherries are added to balance the dark roast and give a slightly fruity character to the finish.

"The Sixpoint formulation method starts with a clear concept of what a beer could be, then uses a knowledge of the craft to turn that into reality," said Keir Hamilton, Sixpoint Brewer. "Here our starting point was the complex flavors of Highland Park whisky and from there we used various ingredients and processes to make beers that emulate and also complement the whiskies."

RUNE and SKÖLL will be available at select bars in New York for a limited time beginning in October 2016.
