Shamrock season is upon us and with it, a variety of festive beer options. If the “dyed green” beer genre isn’t to your taste, we hope you’ll celebrate with one of our handcrafted Irish style beers. No matter your preferences or St. Paddy’s menu, we have a great option for your celebrations.
Our Irish Red Ale tastes as delicious as it looks, a warm and robust beer with ruby and amber hues. You may have caught an eyeful of our beautiful Irish Red Ale on the recent cover of Sauce Magazine or in a savvy Instagram post, as this beer was tailor-made for March festivities and beyond. So many Irish Reds have a bitter finish, not at all in keeping with the sweetness of friendly celebrations. We specifically chose to smooth out our Irish Red with Wildflower honey as opposed to Clover honey for the unique flavor profile it brought to our beer. While it doesn’t add a sugary sweetness, it helps round out the overall notes to create a more even and enjoyable experience. When we say “Made With Integrity” one of the things we take such pride in is the attention to detail, including every single ingredient that goes into our products. This beer goes great with so many foods such as battered fish, roasted veggies, or poached stone fruits, but the toffee and caramel tones really compliment a sharp Irish cheddar. A great starter course or snack if you’re having people over to your home or if you’re camped on a sidewalk to enjoy a parade.
You can also come by our tap room for a pint and a growler of our award-winning Irish Stout. Bold, malty, rich, and a little bit smoky, this beer won a gold medal in the 2016 US Beer Open and has been a customer favorite for years. The complex and roasty flavor of this beer goes great with oysters, sharp cheeses (another vote for Irish cheddar!) and rich desserts… especially chocolate. This tasty stout is actually one of our oldest and best recipes, going back to the early days of Ryan and Lindsay’s home brews and open houses. You might want to drink one just to toast the brewery as it may have single-handedly convinced Lindsay they could really do the whole professional beer thing!
A fun fact about our dry Irish Stout is that it was once called “Six Mile Bridge” after the small, friendly and beer-centric town in Ireland. From this beer in its inception to our entire brewery in 2019, we have wanted to embody what we feel that town embodies… Openness, authenticity, camaraderie, and great beer. It is in that same spirit that we hope you’ll Drink Irish with Six Mile Bridge and the people who bring you joy and friendship this March.
And if great beer isn’t incentive enough to celebrate with us, we have a sweet St. Paddy’s Drink Irish package up for grabs in our “Drink Irish” photo contest! Share a picture on Instagram of your Six Mile Bridge Irish Red Ale or Irish Stout using the hashtag #DrinkIrishWithSMB between now and March 14 and we will randomly select one participant to win a “Drink Irish” tee, two green logo pint glasses, and two “Drink Irish” koozies.
Our Irish Stout is available on draft in our Taproom and in bars and restaurants around Missouri. The Irish Red Ale is available on draft in our Taproom, in your favorite bar or restaurant, or in 16 ounce cans at a wide variety of retail locations with very good taste in beer.
