Microbrewery clone of famous beer

When Scot­tish and New­cas­tle decid­ed to stop mak­ing McE­wan’s 80″ in casks at the end of 2006, the Ath­let­ic Arms in Edin­burgh came up with a nov­el solu­tion. They got a local micro­brew­ery to brew a clone, to a recipe devised in con­sul­ta­tion with reg­u­lar drinkers at the pub.

What a great idea.
