Beer Description:
We’ve been brewing in Boston for 26 years, and have always enjoyed the mix of great beer and good friends that Boston’s pub culture inspires. Hopefully we’ve helped create that combination here at the Brewery as well, but the Irish pub may have been one of the first inspirations, and we wanted to pay tribute to it.

The development of Boston Irish Stout was quite a learning experience as we not only needed to come up with a recipe we liked, but had to learn how to nitrogenate beer on a large scale and package it properly. There were a few bumps in the road as we went along, but thankfully we could always drink our mistakes. Of course, it is also fun to see the tap attached to the bright beer tank (the tank we package out of). We need to sample pints out of the tank prior to packaging because it’s the only sure way to confirm that the beer is going to pour correctly when it is put in the keg. Quality control is a tough job at the brewery!

Boston Irish Stout is a traditional dry Irish stout. Full-bodied but sessionable with a creamy texture (derived from the nitro pour), it combines the roasted character of six malts with delicate Willamette hops.
