Oktoberfest is here!

Frohes Oktoberfest!
O’Connell’s is joining the Oktoberfest celebrations too!
We have Paulaner Oktoberfest beer and Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen flowing on our taps…

Willkommen!

Paulaner
Paulaner at 6.0 % ABV is festive, full-flavoured and ultra delicious, and is brewed specially for the most famous festival in the world.

A German brewer is only permitted to use four ingredients – no more. According to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, these are hops, malt, water and now yeast. The Paulaner master brewers only use the region’s best ingredients. The hops approved for Paulaner come from the Hallertau region of Bavaria, the yeast from its own pure culture, the precious brewing malt from the region and the purest, softest brewing water from its own two deep wells on the Nockherberg. The higher quality of the ingredients, the better the beer. The Paulaner experts therefore check everything thoroughly using their considerable experience and good noses

Tree Hugging Wood Chopping Mother Nature Loving IPA and Corne du Diable now on tap!

Tree Hugging Wood Chopping Mother Nature Loving IPA 6,0%

We all should hug a tree more often. That’s a scientific fact. Now you can conveniently and safely do it without stepping in to the wild and face bears and other scary things. Just sip this beautifully balanced IPA, which has been matured on a bed of American Oak chips.
Brewed with Centennial, Mosaic and Citra hops it delivers very fresh citrus taste, which is nicely combined with pine tree flavour, and then followed by malty backbone. The long lasting after taste comes with hints of wood and vanilla.
_____________________________________________________________________
Corne du Diable 6,5%

Generously hopped, Corne du Diable is a modern interpretation of the British India Pale Ales of old. This copper ale has a malty nose with a round, caramel mouth feel that is contrasted by confident bitterness and forward hop aromas resulting from dry-hopping. This west coast-style IPA has a piney citrus flavour with a roasted spicyness.
Ratebeer.com: 96p.

New beers on tap coming this week: Devil Dancer and Pyynikin White IPA

Here’s a few more new beers we’ll be getting into the line of taps this week:
________________________________________________________________________*Devil Dancer* 12%
When you dance with the Devil, the Devil don’t change. You do. Massive in complexity, the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alphas used to create it. At an incredible 112 IBUs, it’s dry-hopped with ten hop varieties.
_______________________________________________________________________*Pyynikin White IPA* 6,0%
Pyynikin White IPA, Wheat India Pale Ale, represents a new type of beer as it fills your mouth with massive fruity aromes. Then it twists to a funky bitter aftertaste. Fresh beer with plenty of orange peel.

Malts: Wheat, Pils
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo, Citra

reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA coming soon!

We will soon have a few kegs of Founders Brewery reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA coming to us!

reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA
reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.5% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 90 IBUs. It’s not just ridiculous. It’s reDANKulous.
