Happy Birthday Robbie Burns!


The Ploughman Poet's actual birthday is January 25th, but we'll be toasting, singing and cutting the haggis a bit early tonight at Sly FOX in Phoenixville.

We'll celebrate his 250th birthday today with the release of Sly Fox Gang Aft Agley Scotch Ale 2009.One of my favorite Sly beers.

Sly Fox will also be pouring a 2 year old Gang Aft Agley on tap as well as The 2009 Gang Aft and Burns ale by Cask.

The Scottish Soiree begins at 6.

From R. Burns

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, whereever I go.

Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North
The birth place of Valour, the country of Worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

Farewell to the mountains high cover'd with snow;
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;
Farewell to the forrests and wild-hanging woods;
Farwell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, whereever I go.
