This style has its roots in early 1700s Ireland. It came to America and was popularized in the 1990s as 'Irish Red Ale'. It has since become a mainstay in bars, brewpubs, and basements everywhere, and continues to be one of the most popular go-to beers.
Deep copper-red in color, this Irish Ale is smooth, rich and malty - as proper Irish Reds should be. Just a kiss of hops let the malt shine through in this medium-bodied beer. Oh, Danny Boy! This beer, this beer is calling. Sláinte!
