Description

Smithwick’s Red Ale

In 300 years of triumph, adversity and above all, brewing, you learn a thing or two about ale. This, our original Red Ale, is a blend of mild hops, sweet malt and roasted barley. Like the castle at the heart of our Kilkenny home, it’s stood the test of time throughout Irish history, and earned its rightful place as Ireland’s most loved ale.

Smithwick’s Red Ale is the ruby red session ale with a gentle hop bitterness, sweet malty notes and a refreshingly balanced taste.

SMITHWICK’S IRISH ALES, BREWED WITH OUR PASSION, HARVESTED FROM OUR LAND, SEASONED BY OUR HISTORY. IRISH MADE SINCE 1710.

OUR HISTORY
Survival against the odds, the courage to follow your own path, the determination to never give up, the ability to find solutions where others only see problems and a sense of what’s important in life – these are the characteristics that for over 300 years have made Smithwick’s Ireland’s favourite brewer of ales. This is the Smithwick’s story…

OUR HISTORY
After the War business was looking good, then in 1947 melting snows caused a major flood, submerging the entire brewery. Luckily all the precious recipes and technical reports were safely stored high on the third floor. In no time the brewery was back in action but the summer that followed was the worst on record. Heavy rains caused a national emergency, threatening cereal crops. Disaster was avoided and the nation was saved from a minor famine and a major lack of great ale.
