The Shamrock was the first craft brewery in Pueblo, Colorado and has been brewing the best craft beer in Southern Colorado since 2005. Originally founded as an Irish pub over sixty years ago, it is fitting that our Irish Red and Irish Porter are always on tap along with Steel City Gold and PAPA (Pueblo American Pale Ale).
We are passionate about craft beer and always have a seasonal or something new on tap. Don’t miss our Coconut Chocolate Porter (aka Death by Coconut, a collaboration), 3rd Street Coffee Stout (brewed with coffee from our neighbor Solar Roast), BIG PAPA (DIPA), Wee Heavy (Scotch Strong), or Ginger Baker (5280 Magazine Beer Buzz) to name a few. Come enjoy craft beer Colorado style!
Currently on Tap
Steel City Gold
Craft beer doesn’t always have to be aggressive. Fresh, crisp, and clean is what this beer is all about. 5% ABV.
In Ireland, especially in Dublin in the late 1700’s, this style of beer became a favorite of blue collar workers. The drink was known as “plain porter” or just “plain”. This is the drink referred to in the famous Flann O’Brien poem, The Workman’s Friend: “A pint of plain is your only man.” Dark in color, this beer contains a robust flavor from the use of caramel and chocolate malts. 4.8% ABV.
Our Irish style red ale combines Pale, Crystal, and Melanoidin malts to produce a caramel sweetness in this smooth, easy drinking beer. Noble hops provide a mild bitterness but allow the malty caramel flavors to dominate the taste of this beer. 5.0% ABV.
BIG PAPA (Imperial IPA)
This is PAPA’s offensive step father. Aggressively hopped with copious amounts of Mosaic, El Dorado, and Simcoe in the boil and then impregnated with healthy doses of Mosaic and Citra in dry hopping. This provides a very tropically pine-like wallop to the senses. 9.2% ABV
Doppelbock, or Double Bock, is a German style lager associated with a bold, malty backbone. Donovan and I brewed this on Jan. 18th so it has lagered for over six weeks. Lager yeast produces a clean profile with little esters compared to ale yeast. When drinking this beer, pay attention to the malty sweetness and clean fermentation profile accented with roasted and coffee essence from the dark malts. 7.9 % ABV
Foot Burner IPA
The majority of the hops in this IPA ( Eldorado, Columbus, Simcoe) were used near the end of the boil and in dry hopping. Finishing dry, there is a light body to this beer which lets the hops take a more forward role in the flavoring and aroma. This beer was made to remind our brewers to pay attention. From now on this beer will be released every year in mid-April on the anniversary of the “foot incident”. This beer will showcase hop aromatics and leave the bitterness behind. After all, it is not healthy to be bitter about past incidents. 6.8% ABV
