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. 6.2% ABV.
MONK’S DOUBLE – Belgian Dubbel
The origin of Dubbel, a strong version of a brown beer, was brewed in Westmalle Abbey in 1856. This traditionally Trappist beer was originally brewed exclusively by Monks who lived and worked at the abbey. While we can’t technically call it a Trappist beer, we can still brew it with the same doctrine of thought and tradition as the original. As history holds par, dark Belgian candy sugar was used in the brewing process. This addition, along with a special Belgian strain of yeast lends itself to many wonderful flavors often reminiscent of dark fruit, burnt sugar, citrus esters, a touch of banana, and more all feature in what ends up being a surprisingly dry Belgian abbey beer. It’s a wonderful, complex malty beer with caramelized sugar creating flavors of chocolate, rum, raisins and dates. 7.5% ABV / 22 IBU
No Coast IPA
For quite some time now the American IPA world has been influenced by sub-styles which were named for, or identified by, the coast where the sub-style originated. In our humble opinion, Colorado is one of the most beautiful places on earth and the only thing we are lacking is an ocean so No Coast IPA seems appropriate.
Aggressively hopped with assertive notes of pine and resin this beer balances on the tongue with just the right amount of malty sweetness, approaching what many would refer to as the ‘Goldilocks Zone’ of hoppy beer. Coming in at 6.8% alcohol by volume and an assertive 45 international bitterness units this beer is sure to be a welcome addition to any Colorado adventure.
