Treaty City Thomond Red Ale, 4.7% ABV, 500ml — €3.65

Stock­ists: O’Briens Stores na­tion­wide, Fine Wines Lim­er­ick and Cork widely avail­able in Lim­er­ick in both on and off-trade. Craft brew­ing in Ire­land is now at 2% and the big boys are get­ting ag­gres­sive and pil­ing the pres­sure on small pubs. The wise publicans in the Mar­ket Quar­ter of Lim­er­ick have fought back how­ever and joined with Treaty City to cre­ate an ex­cel­lent light ale that gives them bet­ter mar­gins and wel- come ex­clu­siv­ity. If you can’t get to Lim­er­ick to try it then this is fairly widely avail­able — rich dark red in colour, aro­mas of red fruits and malted bar­ley with a touch of spice, rich and full flavoured with a dry light hop fin­ish.
