It’s Time to Drink Irish!

irish red and stoutOnce again, we find ourselves in the season of luck and rainbows… St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and there’s no doubt many of us will be celebrating! Not only is the day itself one of fun and merriment, but in the weeks leading up to it as well. As a brewery named after a town in Ireland, we always want to make sure there are plenty of options for your pint glass.

irish redIrish Red Ale – Our brewery’s best seller and flagship recipe, our Irish Red Ale with Honey is as delicious of a crowd-pleaser as you will find! This warm and robust beer has cheerful ruby and amber hues, and a finish devoid of bitterness often found in red ale styles. The reason ours is so balanced, is because we smoothed it out by adding wildflower honey. While clover honey is popular, we did a lot of side-by-side taste tests and felt the wildflower variety was a better match for our Irish Red’s flavor profile. Widely available on draft and in cans, this beer isn’t just a great one to pair with fried fish, it’s a great one for making a perfect beer-batter for fish or chicken! If you’re looking for a festive snack or grazing board, we also think this ale makes an ideal partner for a sharp Irish Cheddar. 5.55% ABV and 20 IBUs.

Nitro Irish Stout – You might have thought the parade was for St. Patrick, but we happen to know it’s really because we will have our brewery’s very first Nitro beer available! You’ve been begging us to make a Nitro version of our award-winning Irish Stout, and this year we are ready to deliver. This 6% Irish Export Stout is currently being developed by head brewer, Ronnie, but the entire brewery family is excited for this beer. As you probably know, Nitro beers utilize Nitrogen rather than CO2. This creates a richer, creamier mouthfeel that goes perfectly with a luscious stout. Available at our Taproom only, you’ll want to come see us and grab a glass before it’s gone. Additional release details will be available via our social media channels in the coming days.tullamore dew irish stout

Barrel-Aged Imperial Irish Stout – Say WHAT?! Hot off two barrel-aged releases in December, we are back with a fresh one! This one is a true Irish Stout with a lighter 10% ABV body (all the better for drinking two, amiright?) aged in Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey barrels for a dynamite combination of rich chocolate, roasty character, and pronounced barrel character with a slightly warm alcohol and vanilla finish. We can’t think of a better beer to toast St. Patrick! While supply is limited, it will be available at a number of locations throughout the area in addition to our Taproom. Stay tuned to our social media accounts for release details soon.
