Strong PatrickIrish-style Red Ale • 6.1% • Seasonal
Strong Patrick is the classic style from the Emerald Isle. It is luscious and malty, with toasty caramel and coffee. A portion of the ale has been fermented and aged on French oak staves, then reintroduced to add a rich accent of wood and vanilla to this year’s blend.
History & 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 roasted barley to recipe, which also includes Aramis hops and Irish ale yeast.
Strong Patrick pours a brilliant red with a creamy head. Its aroma conjures notes of caramel, oak and malts. It has a malty backbone, with a touch of toasty caramel and vanilla, and a mild bitterness to round and balance.
Traditional style lamb stew, shepherd’s pie, firm goat cheese, warm corned beef with steamed root vegetables, gingerbread with applesauce, shortbread.
