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.
The BIG PAPA Imperial IPA
This is PAPA’s offensive stepfather. Aggressively hopped with copious amounts of Mosaic, El Dorado, and Centennial hops in the boil and then fecundated with healthy doses of Mosaic and Columbus in dry hopping. This provides a very tropically pine-like wallop to the senses. 9.6% ABV
Pueblo Green Chili Ale
This beer was made using Colorado grown malted barley to provide the base, while Vigil Farms Colorado grown Pueblo and Big Jim Chilis provide the accents. This Fantastic American Chili beer has a deep Green Chili aroma and flavor while not coming across as too “hot” which makes it quite sessionable. ABV 5.3%
3rd Coffee Stout
The Shamrock has teamed up with the folks at Solar Roast Coffee to bring you a rich and complex Sweet Coffee Stout. Mike Hartkop and his roasters took the time to medium roast coffee beans from the Sipi Falls region of the Republic of Uganda. The beans were then cold-pressed and added into this neighborly collaboration. Sipi Falls’ coffee beans are known for their medium body, mild acidity and delicate sweetness. Cold pressing the coffee for this beer means that more subtle flavors come across with less tart bitterness. ABV 7%
