Winter Is Coming, Oatmeal Porter.

Winter Is Coming is a dark porter with hints of caramel and coffee. It boasts coffee and chocolate flavours, a creamy texture, and a velvety mouthfeel. This can be attributed to the large amounts of organic oats from the surrounding area used in the brew.

It’s got a lovely smooth quality to it and the flavour is full and satisfying. This one will be featured in the Indie Beer Week tasting sessions.

12 Acres Brewing Company.

Who are they? 12 Acres Brewing Company is a craft brewery located in Clonmore, Killeshin, Co. Laois. It has been set up by brothers Patrick, Ian, Barry & Rory McDonald on their family farm.

The 12 Acres field on our farm is where we have been growing malting barley for the brewing industry for generations. Now we are craft brewing our own beer and we’ve named it after one of the fields where the barley is grown”.

12 Acres Brewing company is the first craft brewery in Ireland that can provide traceability for its malting barley. This is possible due to our long-standing relationship with our local malting company.”

“We are also brewing with our own spring water, which originates from a source deep beneath the same land. This source is fed by the limestone aquifer of the Barrow Valley region which is known for its high quality water and produces a water chemistry ideally suited to brewing.”

“The by-products of the brewing process are the spent malting barley grains, spent hops and excess yeast. All of these by-products will be used as animal feed on our farm, resulting in zero solid waste from the brewing process and a full life-cycle of our ingredients. This ensures a sustainable environmentally-friendly process from ground to glass.”

“All of our beers are brewed using barley which is grown on our own farm, and spring water which is taken from deep beneath the same land; With no artificial additives, preservatives or treatments and no pasteurisation, our beers are fresh and flavourful and traceable from our ground to your glass.”
