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 – Golden Ale
Craft beer doesn’t always have to be aggressive. Fresh, crisp, and clean is what this beer is all about. 5% ABV.
Irish Red – Irish Red Ale
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.
Irish Porter – Brown Porter
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.
PAPA – Pueblo American Pale Ale
This American pale ale layers Columbus, CItra, and Amarillo hops over a light body so you can get intimate with them. While the hop bill remains the same, Keith will use slightly different hops throughout the year in dry hopping to keep things interesting. 6.2% ABV.
Ol’ Big Chief Stout – American Sweet Stout
Roasted notes of rich chocolate, coffee, and sweet milk. Dressing in layers is synonymous with Colorado’s colder weather- because it can change in a moment’s notice and being prepared is our best defense. This seasonal libation holds some of those same beliefs- layering a traditional American stout with several specialty grains, including but not limited to, an extremely dark Perle Negra malt imported from Patagonia, a Carafa Specialty malt that is a blend of three heavily roasted grains, Chocolate malt, as well as the addition of a double roasted Crystal malt, all which lend to this beer’s deep complexity. While that may seem like a lot this beer might be the start of something even more dynamic in the future. So take off a layer and stay a while! (Not a milk stout, i.e.; no lactose). ABV 7.0%
Local 3 – American Amber
This beer was made in honor of our local firefighters. This American Amber has an assertive caramel malt presence which is balanced with late addition cascade hops. This is an approachable classic American beer style. So raise your glass and thank a firefighter. ABV 5.3%
Big Papa – American Hop Deluxe
A classic Double Indian Pale Ale, big upfront hop complexity defines this beer. At 9.4% ABV and a IBU of close to 99 this beer is sweet and bitter without forgetting about a solid malt backbone. Copious amounts of El Dorado, Centennial and Mosaic hops in addition to Vienna, Pilsner and Crystal malts make way for a tasty experience that is best enjoyed sipping with friends and family.
