Burns Night — Scotland’s national holiday — has become one of the Linkery traditions I most enjoy. Frankly, we just did it on a lark because we were into making haggis and drinking AleSmith Wee Heavy, but once the local Scottish, Scottish-American, really-far-north-of-Englandish, and Scottish-loving people in general got hold of it, it instantly became an all-around joy.
As we do every year, we’ll be featuring our house made haggsis, which is very well received by the haggis experts among us. And, even though it’s totally not a Scottish dish, we’ll probably whip up some Scotch eggs, too, because they go so well with this beer.
Speaking of beer! For beer this year we’ve got
* a cask of AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale
* a cask of AleSmith Wee Heavy aged with toasted oak chips soaked with Bulleit Bourbon
* Moylan’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale
* Various assorted AleSmith beers (because they are awesome).
We’ll have haggis and some of these beers available all day (we open at 11:30 on Fridays), with everything being available by dinner time.
Oh, and we’ll definitely have books available for those who are ready to read out some poetry — that’s the best part!
