We’ve been working on how to get that Gaelic feeling for St Patrick’s Day.
Previously we have done really good, simple stouts. But this year we thought we should mix it up a bit.
So we’re brewing that other great beer from the Emerald Isle – an Irish Red (well, sort of). We have blurred the lines on the style guides and made something a little bit original.
Irish Red ale is red in colour from the small amount of roast barley in the ingredients (we have been true to that).Tick.
However they traditionally should have little to no hope aroma and no esters and use English hops. This we have changed!
We’ve used English malts topped off with American hops, with a loverly note of ethers on top.
To be enjoyed on St. Patrick's Day. Top of the day to you!
