Enjoy one of our classic brews:


“If it isn’t already, Warbeard will soon be your favorite Irish Red.  With caramel and toffee-like sweetness on the first taste, it slowly fades into a slightly dry finish.  Hold it up to the light and you’ll enjoy the ruby highlights.  It’s a smooth, malt focused beer that’s almost too easy to drink.”


Feeling thirsty? You will be soon.
