    Sheep Shagger Scotch Ale is a seasonal beer, usually appearing in mid to late winter. The 2009 rendition of this brew was temporarily dubbed InaugurAle for the Inauguration Day release in the United States.

    This ale is a tribute to a Scottish immigrant in the Lake Mills region known as Colonel Carmichael, who settled near the head of Rock Lake in 1844 with his sheep farm. This was not a very successful business venture by most accounts, but just historically memorable enough to inspire the name of this beer, and goes with Tyranena Brewing companies practice of using local historical figures for the names of their beers.
