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.
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. 9.0% ABV.
Matador – Rye Pale Ale
Rye is in the spotlight for this spicy amalgamation of flavors. Subtly spicy with sweet undertones of honey, this beer dances on the tongue like a prized bullfighter dodging el Toro Bravo, narrowly avoiding sheer catastrophe while eloquently tripping the light fantastic. ABV 6.7%
All in the Golden Afternoon – Summer Session Golden Ale
This easy drinking Golden Ale incorporates Mediterranean sea-salt, the juice and zest of limes, grapefruit and oranges, as well as Mexican cane sugar. While the summer heat is upon us, this beer is sure to quench the pallet and broaden our taste-buds. ABV 4.8%
