Our friend Matt at Northside Lounge sent over the following
We have partnered with Cavalry Brewing and Olde Burnside Brewing to have a UKONN Brew Night on May 22nd. Being that both breweries are from Connecticut and they each brew from an English (Cavalry) and Scottish (Olde Burnside) tradition, we thought we would have a play on words/letters with this one. To introduce people to Connecticut breweries and, obviously, the traditions these breweries are steeped in I am confident you can figure out the acronym. Mike McCreary (owner/brewer) from Cavalry and Case McClellan (owner) from Olde Burnside will be on hand at 6pm to discuss their beers.
Ten Penny Ale
Traditional English and Scottish Foods to pair with the respective brews.
As usual I don’t like to do anything ordinarywhen it comes to beer events. I was able to pick up Green Jack Brewery from Lowestoft, England for our UKONN Brewing Night. I decided it would be fun to get some actual English brews to bas as a comparison to what Olde Burnside and Cavalry are doing. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get any rare Scottish brews. When I walk on water I will. So, we are adding the following to our UKONN Brewing Night:
Green Jack: Trawler Boys Best Bitter
Green Jack: Red Herring
Check this brewery out. Pretty cool history. It is located in a small fishing village on the lower east coast of England.
