Smithwick's Irish Ale

ABV:
4.5

While Ireland is known in America for its hearty stouts, the country also has a long history of brewing crisp red ales. Smithwick's has been crafting its own rendition since 1710, although the original brewery dates back as far as the 14th century. Built on the grounds of a former Franciscan abbey, the site was once home to a group of beer-brewing monks. Smithwick's is the major ale producer in Ireland and, along with Guinness, part of Diageo. Like Murphy's Irish Red, this ale is characterized by caramel maltiness and a hint of hops.
