Our first course keeps it simple yet refined with the basic flavors of slow-simmered comfort with Hearty Beef and Barley Soup, or the classic creaminess of Scottish Tattie, rounded out with cheddar in a rich and velvety soup, paired with Great North Ale’s RVP (Robust Vanilla Porter) 7.5% special release, aged in Jamaican rum barrels for four months.
Second and Third Pour/Courses:
The main courses include the bold and hearty flavors of Roasted Lamb Leg or Corned Beef with tender carrots. The middle of the road courses include the cereal-and-grain flavors of Chicken with Oat Dumplings, or Bangers and Peas, paired with Innis and Gunn’s Rum-Aged Full-Bodied Scottish Beer, bursting with fruit and spicy flavors. The lighter end of this full spectrum of courses offers Fresh Baked Haddock in Herb Butter. Everyone can look forward to the slightly bitter foil of Clapshot or Braised Kale, paired with Innis and Gunn’s Original Scottish Beer, offering hints of toffee, vanilla and oak.
The finale comes with the moist, sweet depth of Bread Pudding, with delicious honey glaze; or the homey, sweet fruitiness of Apple Crumble, paired with Smuttynose Pumpkin, real pumpkin and a blend of classic pumpkin pie spices, in tribute to our Colonial Forbearers, 6.5%.
