Philadelphia Brewing Co. unveils their mid-January favorite "Kilty Pleasure" just in time for Burns Night, which is celebrated on January 25th every year since 1801. As you may know, Robert Burns was a poet, lyricist and much more to many Scottish folk and other, you know, regular folk ;). 10engines wrote a nice piece on the typical supper fare for the occasion.

I haven't had this beer, yet(!), but I love a good scotch ale. The reviews seem fair and interesting. I love a nice, thick , Belgium-style beer with heavy notes of scotch in the background. Check out this post I wrote a few weeks ago about a delightful scotch ale.

Nae cotillon, brent new frae France,
But hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys, and reels,
Put life and mettle in their heels.
