Our first beer from the revived Sullivan’s Brewing Company is Maltings Red Ale (4% abv). It’s a refreshingly balanced, ruby tinted classic Irish ale with a depth of malt flavour giving rich biscuit and gentle caramel notes.
Traditionally brewed with only Kilkenny-grown ale malt, including three special darker malts and three varieties of hop. Fermented and matured with cask ale yeast and coupled with our no-rush brewing produces a smooth balanced classic ale.
“There’s a lot more going on here than you might expect. There are four malts used, three of which are darker like crystal and carafa…They also use three varieties of hops in the beer.”
The beer we craft today is inspired by traditional Kilkenny recipes and brewed the way the family has always brewed – the way real Irish beer should be brewed – by local experts, by hand, in small batches, with enormous heart and the finest locally sourced ingredients.
