The Hillsborough Hotel will be holding an alternative Burns Society Scottish beer festival from 4th to 7th February, featuring up to 18 beers from a range of Scottish breweries. Alternative Burns grew out of a group of ex-pat scots who wanted to celebrate the great poet in a slightly alternative way, and have used the occasion to raise money for local charities over the years. At the festival 20 pence from each pint sold will be going our nominated charity, which will be advertised during the weekend. A festival menu will be available, showcasing some of Scotland’s finest produce and including, of course, Haggis, Neeps & Tatties.
We will also be showcasing a range of Scottish Gins, Vodkas and Malt Whiskies which will be available over the weekend. Live music will be provided on Saturday night by some of the members of Hekety.
The Hillsborough Hotel is on the Blue & Yellow tram route, right next to the Langsett Road/Primrose View tramstop.
