A day fully dedicated to our favourite drink…NATIONAL BEER DAY is coming up on April 7th! Even though every day is Beer Day at Craft Beers Delivered, we thought we’d take this opportunity to raise a glass to some of the fantastic Irish craft breweries and beers out there!

FUN FACT — Did you know that the oldest recorded recipe for beer is over 5,000 years old? 

And since 2009, beer consumers across the globe have celebrated National Beer Day, all thanks to a Virginian man named Justin Smith who wanted to commemorate the day in the USA when the prohibition law was abolished for selling beer in the United States. 

So without further ado, here are some of the brews in a variety of different styles (porters to pilsners, sours to IPAs) that we’ll be enjoying this National Beer Day, cheers!



 


1. O'Hara's Nitro Stout


Style: Nitro Stout 

All your favourites from an O'Hara's Irish Stout, but now nitrogenated for a smoother, creamier texture! This brew carries a robust roast flavour complemented by a full-bodied and smooth mouth feel. The generous addition of Fuggle hops lends a tart bitterness to the dry espresso-like finish. A sessionable stout beer filled with rich complex coffee aromas mingled with light liquorice notes.


ABV: 4.3% | €3.15


 

2. Galway Hooker Anniversary Double IPA


Style: Double IPA

Released to commemorate Galway Hooker's 15th anniversary. This beer has been created using seven varieties of hops, resulting in a Double IPA which has wonderful notes of citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Quite powerful and robust at 8.6% — VERY LIMITED.


ABV: 8.6% | €4.99



 


3. Black Donkey Buck It


Style: Hybrid Amber Ale 

A beer that truly bucks the trends! Not true to any particular style, ‘Buck It’ is a blend of Irish, Belgian, and German malts and USA hops, all in one glass. A satisfying, warm and malty amber ale, with a clean, restrained bitterness. Unfiltered and all-natural.


ABV: 4.8% | €3.50




4. Lineman Electric Avenue #2


Style: Extra Pale Ale

The second release in Lineman's Electric Avenue series, named after the first street in Brixton to be electrically lit. This beer has a crisp light golden base to highlight the bright hop flavours with enticing flavours of orange split, bitter orange, citrus pith, gooseberry, and vanilla. 


ABV: 5.3% | €4.40


 

5. O Brother Push The Button


Style: Triple IPA

Another fantastic addition to the ‘Off The Wall’ series. This latest brew is an Australian-inspired Triple IPA hopped with Galaxy and Eclipse. Brewed with Irish Pale malt, flaked oats, wheat and fermented with Hornindal kveik yeast. A wickedly powerful triple IPA you simply MUST try!


ABV: 10.2% | €6.40

 

6. White Hag Festa Nuda


Style: Irish Coffee Pastry Stout

A big, full-flavoured, full-bodied Irish Coffee Pastry Stout which is a collaboration between Birrificio Lambrate in Milan and The White Hag. At 9% ABV, this dessert beer has been aged for six months in Irish whiskey barrels then transferred onto Brazilian coffee beans which were roasted locally by Carrow Coffee. Resulting in a brew with sweet Irish whiskey notes, vanilla, brown sugar and some roasted hazelnut flavours.


ABV: 9%| €4.75


 

7. Bru Brewery Memory Lane


Style: Belgian Tripel

Bru Brewery's take on a Belgian Tripel! Memory Lane has been carefully crafted using Belgian Monastery yeast, resulting in a warm and spicy beer with delicious notes of citrus fruits. Dry and balanced on the palate at 8.8% ABV!


ABV: 8.8% | €4.00

 



8. YellowBelly Mashtun Millionaires


Style: Brett Ale

A collaboration with the hip hop duo Scran Cartel! This Brett Ale has been barrel-aged in a Chardonnay barrel resulting in wonderful tropical fruit notes, orange blossom, apricot and melon flavours. Expect some Brett spice and mild funk too!


ABV: 7.4% | €6.00


 

9. Porterhouse Hammer Pilsner

11. Blacks Pineapple Express


Style: Pale Ale

All aboard the Pineapple Express High Pale Ale for some juicy peach and fruity pineapple flavours! The flavours just keep on rolling in with this one. Opens with sweet peach and pineapple with a touch of biscuity malt before chugging to a gradual halt with herbal and grassy notes on the finish.


ABV: 5% | €4.15

 


12. Boundary Brewing Existential Angst

A dry-hopped Pale Ale from Boundary which has been brewed using Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Columbus. Rich, soft, and pulpy with a vibrant flavour with lemon notes, lychee. Generously dry and enticingly fruity.
