Around the World in 80 Beers: Part 3 - Ireland

(Also read an interview with Donal McLynn fropm Ireland Craft Beers here)

 

The White Hag / Bran & Sceolan / 7.2%

This is an IPA like no other. White Hag have produced a beer that seems rooted in the Irish wilderness – is that a peatiness we sense? The bitterness is balanced brilliantly from the piny and citrusy US hops. Would take a really spicy curry. Wow.  

Individual beers from The White Hag available here

Brehon Brewhouse / Shanco Dubh / 7.7%

Brehon Brewhouse  is based in Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, Ireland, and they are making some amazing beers right now. This Porter is Brehon’s take on the Irish stout with subtle dark chocolate and coffee undertones and a smooth but satisfying finish.

Because you supply amazing beers from around the world:)
Great range and quality of beers and speedy delivery. However, the delivery instructions were not carried out properly. We were out and the pre-arranged place was ignored. The driver left the box outside the front door on full display for 48 hours until we got home. Not ideal.
We are working our way through the box. The selection was excellent as we were looking for a big variety and that's what we got!
