No need for a review on this Brew. All of Chicago knows what it is – and what it means in regards to kickstarting the Spring/Summer Season in Chicago.

Thanks to Henrick Blix for the video. This commercial for Bell’s Oberon won the Judge’s Choice Award for the 2014 Mid-Michigan Addy’s.

Okay, we may be getting ahead of ourselves – but spring is definitely coming. You all know what else that means?! We’re mere days away from getting our first barrel of Oberon delivered from our neighboring State of Michigan.

Murphys Irish Red Ale

Murphy’s Red Ale

Posted by | Beer Reviews, Now On Tap | 2 Comments

Imported from Ireland. 5.00% ABV.

Irish red ales get their reddish hue from the small amounts of roasted barley they contain. Some manufacturers artificially color their beers red, and as a result some beers labeled “red ales” are not truly so. In America, darker amber ales are also sometimes labeled as “red ales.” Murphy’s Irish Red was originally brewed as Lady’s Well Ale in 1856. Lady’s Well, located across from the company’s brewery in Cork, has been a religious site for Catholics since the eighteenth century. Dutch beer juggernauts Heineken International purchased the brewery in 1983. This true Irish red is dry, crisp, hoppy and very carbonated with some signs of fruit and caramel.
