Inspired by Up Helly Aa, the pagan fire festival that symbolizes the rebirth of the sun, we'll send wishes for the New Year on the smoke of our flaming longship. Oh yes!

Join us on January 20th for some flaming fun and a toast to our fellows. «Drink hail! I drink and good luck be to you!» Expect some fiery surprises as well as «Black Moon Boilermakers” (featuring a shot of White Rye from Resurrection Spirits with a glass of Blackmail Stout), and Scottish Hand Pies from the Pie Shoppe.

Up Helly Aa is the Shetland Island’s annual fire festival that celebrates, in proud Viking style, the end of Yuletide feasting and symbolizes the rebirth of the sun. A replica of a Viking Longship is dragged through the streets of the darkened village, to a hilltop where it is ceremoniously torched, then followed by uproarious celebration until the wee hours. What else is one to do in the bleak of winter on a tiny Northern island?

January 20th 7-9pm
Oh, and a beer on the house will be given to those in kilts!
