Irish Stout

Irish Stout

Not for everyone - but if a rich, creamy, dark ale with a distinguished roast flavor appeals to your taste buds you will enjoy a pint of McGuire's Stout. To produce the sumptuous, creamy head we use a special nitrogen draft system. This robust brew is created with dark roasted barley and Chinook Hops.

Pairing

While this dark ale is almost a meal in itself - it goes great with our Hickory Smoked Prime Rib or if you are really up for a treat - combine with our Lucky Chocolate Brownie Pie a la Mode!

  • ABV: 5.2%
  • IBU: 23
  • Serving Temperature: 45 - 50°
  • Glassware: Pint Glass
