We’ve named our porter after a poem by the great Edinburgh poet, Robert Fergusson (1750-74) who deeply influenced Robert Burns and who was born a short walk from Bellfield Brewery, in Cap and Feather Close off the High Street. His headstone in Canongate Kirkyard was designed and paid for by Robert Burns.
The poem celebrates that period from Christmas to New Year, known in Scots as the ‘daft days’ because it is given over to high spirits, celebration and indulgence.
In The Daft Days, Fergusson describes the chill, pallid sunshine and hush that falls over the natural world in winter.
But the poem celebrates the cheer and the shelter that Edinburgh (Auld Reekie) offers, where people can take their fill of food and drink and enjoy good conversation, dancing and music.
Auld Reikie! thou’rt the canty hole,
A bield for many caldrife soul,
Wha snugly at thine ingle loll,
Baith warm and couth,
While round they gar the bicker roll
To weet their mouth.
