I love Haggis!

Conveniently, Arcadia Brewing hosts their annual anniversary party (13 this year),on the day after Eccentric Day. Another fine evening of celebration, including bagpipes, kilts, tatties and neeps, feats of manly strength (such as downing a yard of beer), and Tim Suprise's "address to the haggis". We dined on (house-smoked) salmon and braised lamb shanks, with the aformentioned neeps. And drank the 13th anniversary beer, "Cereal City", a delicious bitter of 1.044 gravity, hopped with Styrian Goldings. Plus, ESB, Big Dick's Olde Ale, and the award-winning bourbon-aged Cereal Killer Barley Wine which was eminently drinkable despite its bourbon notes and strength. Mmmmm. Plenty of foot-stomping music was provided by Fonn Mawr, and the cast of characters we found there enjoying the evening just added to our overall enjoyment. Oh, did I mention the haggis?
