Like blitzing down the Ballyhouras on a bike with an icy wind in your face, this pale ale delivers a refreshing crisp smack around the gills. With a pleasant grapefruit citrus aroma from Cascade and Simcoe hops, it is a great match with spicy or fried food. Try with fish and chips, smoked salmon or anything off the barbecue.
Howling Gale was the first beer we ever brewed, all the way back in 2011, and is still our most popular beer.

Style: Irish Pale Ale
Malt: Irish pale malt, Carapils, Munich, Cara

Strength: 4.5% ABV

Tasting notes: Colour/appearance: pale golden in the glass with a white head.
Aroma: bright grapefruit and pine on the nose.
Flavour: crisp pink grapefruit and pine needles. Medium body with some biscuit malt sweetness.
Aftertaste: smooth and crisp with a gentle smack of bitterness in the finish.
Food pairings: Pale Ales are traditionally seen a great foil for spicy food – there’s a little bit of sweetness there that will cut the chilli burn – but don’t miss the chance to have Howling Gale with fish and chips (or in the batter for the fish!). It’s well worth trying with a Cashel Blue and Broccoli Gratin, the bright citrus notes act like a squeeze of lemon with smoked salmon or pair it with semi-soft, washed rind cheeses like Milleens, Durrus and Gubbeen.
Launch Date: First launched in April 2011. Core range – always available.
