The Irish Red style was first brewed in Ireland by Franciscan monks sometime in the 14th century, which was long before stout became the national drink. The use of unmalted roasted barley reflected the Irish tradition of dodging British-imposed malt taxes while adding depth and complexity to the ale's character. Workingman's Red is flavorful enough to satisfy discerning tastes, but still quaffable enough to quench the mighty thirst of the workingman with flavor perfectly balanced between the sweetness derived from malted barley and the bitterness provided by whole hop cones.
For tonights O'Kane's release Mike 'Curly' White has stuffed the famous firkin chock full of dry hop cones to give this popular company standard a floral and flavor-filled kick. Take off those work gloves, roll up your sleeves and enjoy!
