Wexford Irish Cream Ale

New to our draft beer selection this week is a different style of Irish beer that we have never done before. We have brought in Wexford Irish Style Cream Ale.

After just finishing up with the Valentine's holiday, our next event we look forward to on the calendar is St. Patrick's Day. It is never too early to start celebrating this holiday. We always look forward each year to serving some amazing, traditional Irish favorites... everything from reubens, corned beef, and cabbage to Guinness and Harp beers.

Wexford is brewed by the Green Kinge/ Morland brewery located in Suffolk, United Kingdom. This Irish ale dates back to 1810 and still uses the original family recipe. They use the simplest ingredients and traditional brewing methods in order to produce something special for this time of year. Malted barley from the sunny climate and fertile soils of the Anglican country along with water supplied from the artesian wells 200 feet below their brew house really make this brew taste spectactular.
I had never tried a cream style ale, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is amber in color with red highlights that pours a creamy head with lacing (like Guinness in a way). Its aromas are buttery mixed with light hops. Wexford has a light taste that finishes with a smooth, creamy, buttery flavor.
Keep your eye out for our Irish specials as we get closer into March, but it is never too early to try this traditional Irish beer.
