O'Hara's Session Ipa 3.8° 50cl
This IPA session was designed to be lighter than a traditional IPA but still with just as much flavour and strength.
Brewed with 100% Irish malt and hops: cascade, simcoe and chinook, this beer offers fruity flavours of cherry, melon and citrus (lemon and lime) that combine perfectly.
IBU* : 25, slight bitterness.
*International Bitterness Unit is a unit used by brewers to measure the bitterness of their beers. It is a unit of weight of one part per million (ppm) of isohumulone (an alpha acid), the bitterness agent that comes from hops.
In 1996, the Carlow brewery was established by the O’Hara Brothers. The O’Hara beer became international when the Celtic brown beer was elected number 1 at the Millenium Brewery International Ceremony.
The marriage of traditional brewing techniques, modern technology with the finest natural ingredients make Carlow beers amongst the richest, most flavoured and most complex beers.
The brewery is located in The Goods Store, a wonderful stone-walled building formerly used as a loading and unloading warehouse for the nearby train station. Now refurbished, the brewery includes a tasting bar, perfect for visitors who wish to taste the local beer while discovering the brewery’s interior.
