The weekend cometh, and the Rogue Speakeasy leads you into it. This week, in honor of the release of Michael Hogan‘s Burial of the Dead, we’re drinking a brew from the land of Hartford, Connecticut, where his grand mystery is set.
Like your beer with a unique Scottish twist? Honestly, that’s a question you’ve probably never thought about, but once you’ve had an ale from Olde Burnside Brewing Company, you might feel like donning a kilt the next time you go drinking. The Scots are known for being a rough-and-tumble crowd, and Olde Burnside would make even the meanest, toughest Scot proud. This East Hartford, Connecticut microbrewery proudly claims that it uses only the highest quality hops and ingredients during the brewing process and does not use filter, pasteurize, or include any additives, stabilizers, or preservatives in its beers. They’re all about providing the freshest and most full-flavored beers around, and they have become a local favorite since they opened in 2000.Olde Burnside beers can be found in 7 states across the Northeast, so next time you’re feeling a wee bit Scottish, pick up their flagship Ten Penny Ale or their Penny Weiz Ale and enjoy a rich taste of Scotland. Leave the bagpipes at home, though. Or hell. Bring them with you and make some noise.
