Murphy’s Red Ale – Westlake Wine & Spirits’ Beer of the Week

Of course we have an Irish beer on St. Patrick’s Day!  Murphy’s has been in Cork, Ireland, since 1856, and it seems as if they’re gettin’ pretty good at it.  They’re probably more famous on this side of the pond for their stout, but don’t let that keep you from tipping back a couple Red Ales.  It’s an attractive beer, to be sure.  The first sip had a bit of an off taste – a bit metallic, perhaps, but that first impression gave way to a nice, medium bodied – toasty, easy drinking – ale.  The point, maybe, is that it’s from Ireland.  It’s the real deal.  An economy flight these days (they say the prices are down for the moment) could set you back $1000, and then you’d have jet lag and probably end up sitting next to someone who just doesn’t know when to shut up.  For about $10, you can celebrate your real or imagined Irish heritage with a quick trip to Westlake Wine & Spirits.   The beer adventure continues…
