Craft Beer

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.

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. 5.3% ABV.

P.A.P.A. – 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.

BIG PAPA – Imperial IPA

This is PAPA’s offensive step father. Aggressively hopped with copious amounts of El Dorado, Columbus, Centennial and Mosaic in the boil and then impregnated with healthy doses of Mosaic, Centennial and Eldorado in dry hopping.  This provides a very tropically citrus-like wallop to the senses. 8.7% ABV

Serenity Now! Imperial Stout

This Pueblo Imperial Stout is dedicated to Frank Costanza, arguably one of the finest characters on the hit TV show Seinfeld. This Imperial Stout is opaque black in color, with heavy notes of espresso, chocolate, dark toffee and black-strap molasses. The addition of orange zest and a small amount of Swiss chocolate add to this beers forever growing complexity. The Nugget hop variety provides a subtle herbal dryness balancing the light citrus notes of Valencia orange zest and finishes with a hearty slap of heavy roasted espresso. At 8.6% ABV, this fine beer may be all the serenity you need this holiday season.
