Brehon Brewhouse, nestled amongst the rolling drumlins of Patrick Kavanagh country in County Monaghan, brings to you the "Stony Grey IPA". This beer is not just a drink but a tribute to the land that has inspired countless tales and poems, especially "The Stony Grey Soil of Monaghan" by Patrick Kavanagh. The same soil that shaped the poet's life and lessons has inspired this unique IPA.

Open since April 2014, Brehon Brewhouse is a true farmhouse brewery, located right on their farm outside of Carrickmacross. Owners Seamus and Siobhán McMahon have a simple ambition: to produce distinctive beers that reflect the trend towards craft and artisan products. Their emphasis on pairing beer with food comes from their head brewer Phil Bizzell, who has a special interest in beer and food matching.

The "Stony Grey IPA" stands out with its cloudy golden orange hue. It's not just the colour that's captivating but also the aroma. Unlike many IPAs that blast you with piney hops, this one starts with a sweet bubblegum and fruit scent, gradually introducing more grassy and cedar notes. There's even a hint of talcum powder.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Cloudy golden orange with a foamy white head.
  • Aroma: Sweet bubblegum and fruit initially, followed by grassy and cedar notes.
  • Flavour: Herbal and woody, with some bitter orange pith coming through at the end.
  • Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, ensuring the pillowy white bubbles linger.

This IPA is versatile in its pairings. It's a classic match with spicy foods and complements ethnic cuisines like Mexican, Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese. It also pairs well with game, smoked meat or fish. The brewery suggests pairing this IPA with chicken wings or even desserts like a lemon curd cake or Key Lime pie.

For those who are keen on exploring the world of beers, the "Stony Grey IPA" is a must-try. It offers a different take on the typical IPA, leaning more towards the herbal, woody spectrum. And for those who appreciate convenience, the 5L keg can be used as a standalone with its tap at the bottom or paired with our DreamDraft Beer Dispenser Machine.

So, whether you're a beer enthusiast, a casual drinker looking to expand your palate, or a newcomer eager to dive into the diverse world of beers, the "Stony Grey IPA" is waiting for you. Purchase online or in-store now and embark on a unique beer journey.
