Killarney the beer!

February 25, 2008 · 0 comments

Harking all the way from Montana USA a brewery called ‘Bayern’ has brewed a beer called Killarney Red Lager since 1988 (who knew?). The recipe mixes the best of German brewing tradition with a nod and a wink and a tip of the hat to Killarney.

Killarney’s warm red color distinguished it, and coincidentally or not, a flurry of red Irish beers from some of America’s big brewers hit the market soon after. But Bayern can rightfully claim to have created the first red Irish lager in the states, back in February of 1988. Lucky for Montana.

Now 20 years later, Killarney Red Lager is one of Bayern’s most anticipated seasonals. It is brewed with two-row Harrington pale, carmel, Munich, wheat and German Dunkel malt. The hops are cascade and come from Yakima. Bayern Killarney has an alcohol content of 5.7%
