Mill Street Tartan Ale To Debut at Robbie Burns Dinners


TORONTO, ONMill Street Brewery has announced that the Robbie Burns dinners taking place at their two brewpubs later this month will feature the debut of a new beer created especially for the occasion.

Mill Street Tartan Ale is an 8% abv Strong Scotch Ale that was brewed at the Mill Street Brewpub in Ottawa. It is described as follows:

Tartan Ale is brewed with five different malts including British pale ale malt, roasted barley and caramel, biscuit and Munich malts to give it a rich maltiness and deep amber colour. We use an English ale strain from Burton that gives the beer a light “apple” fruitiness to lighten up the malt to some degree. The malt is also balanced with a small amount of British hops used without donating much flavor – hops are classically not a big part of Strong Scotch Ales which are famed for their massive caramel malt tones and warming character.

In addition to the Tartan Ale, the Burns dinners – taking place at the Toronto brewpub on January 24th, and Ottawa brewpub on the 25th – will feature four other Mill Street beers including IPA, Father John’s Ale, Black Watch Scotch Ale and Vanilla Porter, each paired with a different food course. Reservations can be made by contacting the Toronto and Ottawa brewpubs.

Availability details for the Tartan Ale after the dinners has yet to be confirmed.
