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.
Scotch Strong – Wee Heavy
Scotch Strong Ales, also known as “Wee Heavy” are characterized by a strong alcohol content, rich caramel sweetness, full body, and little to none hop character. The style was believed to have originated in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland in the 18th century. 9.0% ABV.
Golden Afternoon – Citrus Ale
Light summer beer, perfect to take to the lake, river, camping trip or just a nice refreshing libation to quench the thirst of mowing the lawn. What makes this beer extra special is the trifecta of ingredients that melds together in a subtle, yet beautiful array. Pure Mexican cane sugar as well as Piloncillo sugars were added to the boil, as well as the juice and zest of copious limes, grapefruits, tangerines and oranges, all finished off with the addition of Mediterranean sea salt for a refreshingly crisp yet dry finish. 4.8% ABV.
