Packing a punch at 5.5% ABV, the beer will be available across the city from tomorrow, January 25 just in time for Burns Night celebrations.

Vault City co-founder Steven Smith-Hay said: “We’ve created our Iron Brew sour to pay homage to a drink that we truly love, and the demand is huge. 

"There’s nothing better than a can of the good stuff! 

“People love it and ask us to make this a permanent fixture, but dropping it once a year keeps it special.

“If we made it a year-round beer Barr might be a bit peeved, and I don’t want that because Irn Bru’s my favourite non-alcoholic drink, that’s why we made it! But then again, you never know what will happen in the future.”
