O’Hara’s Barrel Aged Leann Follain 8.1% & Winter Star 5%


Joy to the brewers! The festive season is in full swing at O’Hara’s, with the launch of their latest Winter Star brew. Winter Star is a spiced rye pale ale bursting with flavours of cinnamon and orange zest, with a natural spiciness from the addition of rye malt. A festive favourite in its own right, Winter Star also appears alongside other favourites in the O’Hara’s Christmas gift pack, where it lines up beside their other well-establishe­d favourites – the Irish Pale Ale and the Irish Stout.

Hot on the heels of Winter Star is the seventh edition of O’Hara’s much-loved, multi award-winning Barrel Aged Series. Incorporat­ing some of the finest techniques in Irish brewing, this rich, full-bodied stout is aged in oak Irishman Whiskey barrels from Walsh Whiskey in Bagenalsto­wn for three months, where it picks up the flavours of whiskey and oak casks. After ageing, the beer is then bottle-conditione­d to give a gentle carbonatio­n, bringing out the best of both the stout and the whiskey.

This is one to enjoy slowly over your Christmas dinner…
