Guinness Stout is perhaps one of the World's most famous beers and no discussion of Irish beer would be complete without mentioning the story behind Guinness. For this, we refer you to an excellent volume by Peter LaFrance entitled "Beer Basics" that is available from John Wiley and Sons of New York. The thumbnail photomicrographs below provide links to the Irish beers in our collection.
Guinness Stout - This well-respected export stout is a rich, dark beer with a hoppy malt taste, severely bitter and malty aftertaste with an intensely bitter finish.
Harp - This golden lager has a great history of Celtic legend, brewed for a clean, full malt body with an evening hop leaf bitterness.
