Dry stouts are a Saint Patrick’s Day tradition and we couldn’t miss out on brewing one for our first Saint Patty’s. This low alcohol stout isn’t low on flavor- with lots of rich coffee and chocolate notes and a bone-dry finish, you could drink it all day long. Cheers and the luck of the Irish to ya!

This was one of the beers on their chalkboard I was least interested in, but it surprised me. I guess I’m so used to Irish stouts being all nitro’ed up or overcarbonated otherwise, it was nice to see this dark brown pour with a modest head. Nose and taste showed lots of coffee and moderate chocolate. Not as much lactic or chalky notes as expected from the style, and not quite as dry as expected, either. Especially with the low ABV, this was a surprise winner.
