Perry Mason, the founder of Scotch-Irish Brewing, has left Heritage Brewing, the brewery that purchased the Scotch-Irish name and brands in 2006.
In a post to the Bar Towel Forum announcing his departure, Mason says that he is ‘now free to persue “other projects”‘, and that he is ‘not done in this business yet’.
At the time of his departure, Mason was not involved in the day to day brewing of the Scotch Irish beers, which were being overseen by Heritage brewmaster Ancil Hartman. Presumably, Heritage and Hartman will be continuing to brew the core Scotch-Irish brands and seasonals, including Sgt. Major IPA, Black Irish Plain Porter, Stuart’s Organic Session Ale, Corporal Punishment Brown Ale and John By Imperial Stout.
