Western Herd Dolmen Stout
Western Herd's newest concoction is a limited edition stout. Made with ingredients sourced from local producers in County Clare they continue in keeping everything about their beers as local as possible. In keeping with this theme is the name; 'Dolmen'. So we told the story of Poulnabrone - the most famous of the Clare dolmens - on their label. We pay homage to the 33 of Clare's ancestors that were buried underneath the great megaliths and celebrate them in modern, Art Deco embellishments.
In sourcing ingredients for our Dolmen Irish Whiskey Stout we didn’t have to go far. That’s because we have the finest artisan suppliers right on our doorstep in County Clare. This stout is aged in whiskey barrels from The Chapel Gate Whiskey Company in West Clare. It’s flavoured with coffee roasted by Anam in the Burren and with cocoa nibs from Hazel Mountain Chocolate - also in the Burren.
Here’s to the Banner’s finest!
The great dolmen of Poulnabrone is one of County Clare’s most impressive archaelogical sites. Built between 4200BC and 2900BC it was the burial setting for 33 of our Clare ancestors. These days, Poulnabrone is a noted location for astronomical observation and so we thought it fitting to feature 33 stars above the great megaliths.
Here’s to our past.
