The yeast strain used for the brewing of this American style pale ale is specially imported from the USA, along with Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops.

Wild Places

Wiper and True

4.4% abv

A deliciously flavourful cask-only pale ale that’s designed from the ground-up to suit the traditional cask pour. Peppery rye malts mingle with sweet, dark roasted crystal barley for an intriguing combination that is far from the often cloying sweetness of contemporary pale ales. This malt backbone is brought to life with Idaho 7 hops, which add notes of black tea and citrus pith. Vegan friendly.

Chieftain - 5.5%


Franciscan Well

5.5% abv

A hugely popular IPA, and Franciscan Well's answer to Ireland's growing demand for IPA style beers. IPA's are traditionally high hopped to deliver intense bitterness that lingers on the pallet which usually limits what you can drink or taste after it.
