No-one looks forward to their Haggis, neeps & tatties as much as our very own piece of Scotland - Senior Brewer, Stewart Main. And he knows exactly how to celebrate Burns Night!

"A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and works of Scotland’s national Bard. An Evening of song, poetry, music and of course great food and drink.

"Guests are piped in and the Chairman says The Selkirk Grace, then festivities commence! Great traditional Scottish fare is enjoyed, none more than the Haggis which is ceremoniously delivered to the top table on a silver platter, accompanied by a Scottish piper. Then my highlight of the evening - Burns’s famous poem, To a Haggis, is recited.

"Traditionally, Scottish malt Whisky and Ale is drunk with the meal, and there is no finer ale to be drunk in and around Kent on the 25th Jan than Burns Extra Special!"

Tasting Notes

A full bodied, Scottish style, malty ale brewed from a traditional recipe that combines the delights of the finest pale ale malt with delicious biscuity crystal and brown malts, topped off with generous quantities of the choicest Scottish oats. Brewed in the old style, this truly classic ale is delicately hopped, leading to a well balanced, mature, rounded palate. Savour a taste for auld lang syne with a beer brewed in Kent by a Scotsman!
