Beer Spotlight – Innis and Gunn Whiskey Stout

We managed to get our hands on this tasty offering from Innis and Gunn, a Stout matured in Irish Whiskey cask wood. Seems like yesterday that we were selling Innis and Gunn as a revolutionary style with their maturing in oak casks (well sort of). But this one is worth checking out. A velvety mouth feel with lots of treacle and chocolate notes. Had nothing to do with the Jacob’s Chocolate Orange I’d just devoured! At a lovely 7.4% ABV it is a lovely beer to share with your better half.

Moms Love The Haven

Moms love The Haven
“A pub is no place for kids, right? But if it’s a truly European pub, it certainly is! And the Haven is truly Scottish to its core. Owner Jason Waddleton greets guests at the door donning a kilt every night, and as a proud father himself, he takes special care of his younger patrons,” says Alexandra Hall of Boston’s only Scottish restaurant, the Haven on Jamaica Plain. As you enter this authentic neighborhood pub, you feel as if you have just stepped into Scotland, with tartan-clad antlers and a menu as Scottish as they come. Alexandra continues, “Plus, it’s the only place where I can get my kids to actually order their veggies—they down the minted mushy peas like they’re a sundae!”

Best of Boston 2014

The Haven won Best Bar in Jamaica Plain in the 2014 Boston Magazine awards. What better way to start our FIFTH year! A big thank you to Boston magazine for recognizing us and to all of Jamaica Plain and the Scottish diaspora for supporting us!
