St Mel’s Brewing was established in Longford in 2014 by Eoin Tynan and Liam Hanlon (formerly brewer with Carlow Brewing Co — O’Haras etc).
Stockists: Bradleys, Sunnydale Off-Licences, SuperValu Nationwide, Londis Malahide, Deveneys, widely available in the Midlands
As you might expect these are all finely crafted beers and pleasingly they are bottle-conditioned.
This is a bottle- fermented Maibock — the strong bock lager brewed in Bavaria to herald the arrival of Spring — well suited to the recent mild Spring weather.
This has a rich red-gold colour, malt aromas with a touch of smoke, earthy and light honey character, and a crisp fresh finish with subtle hopping.
