Beauís Strong Patrick Irish Red Ale

Brewed by Beauís Brewing Co.
Vankleek Hill, Canada
6.7% Irish Ale | 102 Ratings | 24 IBU |
A strong (6.5% abv) interpretation of an Irish Red Ale. Part of the batch has been aged in wheat whiskey barrels, and then reintroduced adding subtle wood and vanilla nuances.
History & Style
Strong Patrick is based on an Irish Red, an ale style that is lightly hopped, well rounded and balanced, with a pleasant toasted malt character. A celebration of the traditional style just in time for St. Patrickís Day!
Tasting Notes
This is a luscious, red-hued ale with a malty backbone, showcasing toasty and toffee notes complemented by some warming alcohol & whiskey flavours. These combine with underlying wood & vanilla nuances added through contact with oak.
Food Pairings
Brewmaster Matthew OíHara suggests pairing with creme brulee, and of course some traditional soda bread and Irish stew.
