Three Floyds Brian Boru Irish Red Ale

Three Floyds Brian Boru Irish Red Ale

User Rating:

Noel: Three Floyds Seasonal Bombers Part Deux is a bit tamer than January’s massive Behemoth Barleywine. But for all you Killian’s Irish Red fans out there…prepare for humiliation. Brian Boru is the real deal. One taste of this hop-hearty, roasty, beautiful copper colored ale and you’ll see why even Arthur Guinness has to give some […] ... [Read more]

Samuel Adams Irish Red

User Rating:

I would have never bought this beer on my own but I couldn’t pass up the gift. A wine drinking friend of mine won a variety 12 pack and wanted to get rid of a bunch so I accommodated his wishes gracefully. I wouldn’t buy this because I lean toward craft beers not the big […] ... [Read more]

Boulevard Irish Ale

User Rating:

Taylor:  In the humble state of Missouri there lies a brewery called Boulevard that makes a really good Irish Ale. Boulevard Brewing Company’s Irish Red Ale found my glass on a hot summer evening after waiting patiently in my refrigerator. It comes in a short and unassuming brown bottle … a seasonal brew from Boulevard […] ... [Read more]

Trinity Red Ale

User Rating:

Pours a copper, slightly cloudy red color, 1 finger head; beer eventually clears quite well. Aroma is quite surprising, pleasant, and pleasing. Chocolate, caramel, coffee candy- really quite impressive. Like the inside of a coffee or candy shop. Taste: I definitely get a roasted note, with a light coffee aftertaste which is really good. The […] ... [Read more]

Finnegan’s Irish Amber

User Rating:

There is a quaint little restaurant in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis called Duplex. It’s called Duplex because it’s an actual duplex that’s been retrofitted to a fantastic gem of a restaurant. It’s one of those “beer and wine only” restaurants. While some people despise a restaurant where they can’t get a stiff Tom Collins, […] ... [Read more]

Cottonwood Irish Style Red Ale

User Rating:

Will I have a Guinness this week? Of course. But there are (shockingly) other Irish brews worth a sip or two as well. One, brewed this side of the pond, is the Cottonwood Irish Style Red Ale. Talk about an identity crisis, this one was brewed by Carolina Beer Company in Pennsylvania and likens itself […] ... [Read more]

Ram Nutcracker Irish Red Ale

User Rating:

My personal history with this Chicago brewpub chain started probably a decade ago when I was working for the same company I am now, but had a very different job. Back then I was driving around a white cargo van with an oversized company logo on the side, listening to the radio, shirt off (no […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Conway’s Irish Ale

User Rating:

I have less than 20 minutes to write this review and get back to work (no pressure). One of best craft breweries that I stumbled upon two years ago was Great Lakes Brewing Co. Based out of Cleveland Ohio, they make an assortment of distributed beers which are, in my opinion, high caliber. Last Spring […] ... [Read more]

Moylan’s Irish Red Ale

User Rating:

After church, I decided to head home and fix myself a turkey sandwich and relax. While that was an easy decision to make, my choice of beer was quite the opposite. After stocking up on some fine brews last night I had a fridge full to select from (more reviews to come). I finally made […] ... [Read more]
