The Mescan Brewery in Westport are ringing in the silly season with the launch of their limited edition Christmas beer. The Beoir na Nollag beer features a seasonal bottle label, drawn by hand and can be enjoyed now or cellared for later drinking as it matures further in the bottle.
About Beoir na Nollag
Beoir na Nollag is a dark amber beer clocking in at 8.8%. It was aged in bulk for 6 months and then transferred to Irish whiskey casks for a further 2 months of barrel aging. It was then dry hopped and bottle conditioned. The flavour profile is malty, with dry fruits, warming alcohol and subtle notes of whiskey, wood and hops.
All Mescan beers come in 330ml bottles and are available on www.mescanbrewery.com
