It seems that as soon as the gifts have been handed out and the food consumed people start to relax and prepare for the next holiday season. But despite being January there are quite a few things going on, including the release of Slane’s Irish-style Red from Diamond Knot Brewing.
About Slane’s Irish-style Red
“Slane’s Irish-Style Red blends the best of Irish tradition with the boldness of West Coast style. The challenge was designing a beer that balances the complex malty sweetness, while still letting the Pacific Northwest hops shine through. We think we’ve come up with something that our customers really look forward to year after year.” said Brewmaster Pat Ringe.Slane’s Irish-Style Red Ale is deep red in color with a sweet, caramelly aroma, complex malt flavors and a very subtle smokiness at the end with a crisp, hoppy finish.
