While Irish brewing is perhaps best known for its black stouts, some ales in Ireland have been red since before detailed brewing records were kept--the exact origin for the style is unknown. What is known--and is still true today--is that these beers are rich, and malty, mild in bitterness, and of a distinctly reddish hue.

    Great Service! 07/02/2020
    By David Lemoine
    During these trying times, The Beverage People are going all-out to keep home-brewers supplied with quality products. I ordered online and there was an issue with my credit card. They emailed me the next day and we got it sorted-out within maybe an hour. We then scheduled the date when the order would be pulled and placed at their outdoor pick-up point. The order was clearly marked with my name and they even bubble-wrapped the yeast with some cute little cold-packs to protect it from the heat!
