Strong PatrickIrish-style Red Ale • 6.7% • Wild Oats No. 18
Strong Patrick is a bold rendition of an Irish-style red ale. Brewed stronger than most, it is luscious and malty, with toasty caramel and coffee. A portion of the ale has been aged in Jameson® Irish Whiskey casks, then reintroduced to add a rich accent of wood and warmth to this year’s blend.
History and Style
Strong Patrick is our version of the classic style from the Emerald Isle. It was first brewed in 2012 for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at Beau’s Brewery, and has been a returning seasonal favourite ever since. Its red hue is the result of the addition of organic roasted barley to recipe, which also includes organic Pilgrim hops and Irish ale yeast.
Strong Patrick pours a brilliant red with a creamy head. Its aroma conjures notes of caramel, whiskey, oak and malts. It has a malty backbone, with a touch of toasty caramel and vanilla, and a mild bitterness to round and balance. It finishes rich and warm.
