Clonmel 1650, named after one of the most historic events of the town of Clonmel, celebrates the resilient spirit of the people and demonstrates the strong ties our business has to the small Irish town where it all began.

5. Beamish Irish Stout

The fully rounded, malted flavour of Beamish Irish Stout is created using original Beamish yeast dating back to 1792 to capture the traditional taste of stout from Ireland.

4. Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale


With a base flavour similar to Smithwick’s, the distinct smooth and creamy finish of Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale gives it its own unique and delicious blend.

3. Murphy’s Irish Red


Originally dating back to 1856, this naturally red, hoppy Irish beer is crisp and dry with flavourful notes of fruit and caramel.

2. Smithwick’s Irish Ale


Often referred to as “Smitticks”, Smithwick’s captures a unique flavour that combines its hops with sweet aromatic fruits and deep malt, coffee and roasted barley notes.

1. Murphy’s Irish Stout


Probably the best-known alternative to Guinness. Light and sweet in flavour compared to the rest, Murphy’s Irish Stout has become increasingly more popular especially in the US.

    Murphy’s is like water compared to Guinness… O’Hara’s stout is quite nice in a bottle, I’d love to try it on nitro. If the bottled stout is any indication, it’s hugely better than Murphy’s.
