St Patty's - Scottish Style with Dirty Penny Ale

Over the weekend, I hit my local Irish pub and did a quick comparison to the big three in Irish Stouts, but ended up finish the night with a couple tasty 10 Penny Ales... In case you don't know 10 Penny is a local CT micro that was awarded “Hartford’s Best Microbrew” for 2005, 2006 and 2007. I gotta tell you, it's a damn fine beer! And it's brewed in the "Scottish tradition", a plus for guy like me with Scottish ancestry.

Since tonight is actually St Patrick's Day, the wife and I are boiling up some corn beef (New England Boiled Diner) and I figured I'd hit the package store and grab an American Stout to compare with the "Big Three" from the other night. I didn't find anything that tickled my fancy at the store, so I decided to go a different route and picked up a growler of Olde Burnside Dirty Penny Ale instead.

Olde Burnside Dirty Penny Ale is Old Burnside's pre-made Black & Tan beer, made from a mixture of 60% Ten Penny/40% their "signature stout", which apparently you can not get on it's own... (Or can you?)

I figured this might be a cool thing to enjoy and review tonight with my "Boiled Dinner", so I'll sample it and post a review later tonight or tomorrow...

We need a cool Scottish holiday!
