Blasta an Oatmeal Stout
Brewing, Naming, Packaging, Illustration
About the project
A new (and fierce) Oatmeal Stout inspired a search into the history of oats: a national dish of Scotland honoured by the World Porridge Championship in the highland village of Carrbridge (where excellence can earn you a coveted Golden Spurtle).
The product narrative is authentic and rich in potential. “Blasta!” in Scottish Gaelic, is not an onomatopoeia, but a compliment meaning tasty, delicious, or eloquent (as in,“Tha oatmeal blasta.”) Even the Gaelic word for beer, lionn, relates to traditional Scottish heraldry and the Lion Rampant (illustrated here in stout format, turned around a spurtle)
