Our Irish Red recipe is a very drinkable beer that derives it's flavor primarily from the malts used, with notes of caramel and toasted grains, and a deep red color. A smooth beer with a clean, crisp finish. It's not just great for St. Patrick's Day, it's a great beer for any occasion, and any season all year round.

    Irish Red

    Posted by Bruce Cain on Aug 3rd 2020

    This is by far both mine and my wife's favorite. I make this numerous times a year. Excellent flavor with a bit of creaminess (is that a word?). Great mix and outcome!!

    Irish Red - first time brew

    Posted by Bruce C. on Dec 4th 2018

    I'm probably a bit early on this review since I just started this brew last night, but so far everything looks great. I will try and update when the final product is ready! So far though I can't say enough good about the product and the company. 5 stars all across the board on everything!

    Good starter

    This was the first homebrew recipe I made. It is very simple and straight forward to introduce you to the process. There's not too much that needs to be done and smells amazing. I can't wait to crack one open in a few weeks.
