Two words. Great Porter. We really liked this porter! The beer itself is named after the Irish saint who is credited with a somewhat unorthodox miracle: In order to help slake the thirst of lepers in her care, she turned her bath water into beer. Unfortunately, a technique that wasn 't passed down from generation to generation. Historians did not record the lepers' reaction, but it was probably something like "Cool!". It took the Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup in 1996 and the Silver Medal at the World Beer Championships in the same year, and was named best porter by Westward Magazine in both 1995 and 1996. Note a definite roasted malt nose with little hops evident in this deep, ruby-colored, full-bodied ale. A "robust porter" by style, St. Brigid's doesn't let you down. You'll find the body full and offering notes of chocolate and a lingering roasted finish.
