"Samhain Season is upon us ,
It is a time for welcoming the harvest and ushering in the dark half of the year. Samhain holds a special place in our memories as our Underworld series was born from this darkness.
The Underworld series of native Irish beers was born out of our quest for adventure, our sense of history and our respect for tradition. If you haven't tried the three Underworld beers yet, you are missing out on Ireland's only beers fermented with a native Irish yeast.
On October 31st, 2017, we embarked upon the Wild Yeast Chase and harvested a yeast we named Morrigan from Oweynagat cave. The cave is considered to be the “Gate to Hell” or entrance to the Underworld and the origin of Samhain. You have been warned!
Sergeant Jimmy 2022 is on its way, scheduled for a late November release.
And something sour, barrel conditioned and special this way comes in the next month or less, stay tuned!
Forever and always, we ask you to support local wherever you can. This support helps small independent brewers like ourselves to keep brewing."
