Kilty Pleasure & Burns Night

Robbie BurnsKilty Pleasure

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.

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