Beer notes: NYBP goes Scottish, Pearl Street to host patio party

NYBP prepares you for the Scottish Festival

New York Beer Project (6933 S. Transit Road, Lockport) will tap its Stone’s Throw Scottish Export ale on Aug. 17. The 4.7 percent ABV malty beer yields a light biscuit and moderately sweet caramel aroma, with flavors of toast, rich toffee, and an off-dry finish, which means there's a touch of sweetness to the otherwise dry close.

The tapping will coincide with the brewery’s Scottish Festival pregame party, beginning at 7 p.m. Aug. 17.

Drinking songs from Tom Keefer and Celtic Cross, bagpipe performance from Buffalo Niagara Scotia Society Pipes & Drums, and kilts will accompany the ceremonial tapping of the beer. Call 743-6927.
