THE LEGEND: This stout honours the seven Casey brothers who hailed from County Kerry – a unique family of fine athletes blessed with incredible strength, agility, and skill. The boys were champion oarsmen with humble beginnings, rowing across Kenmare Bay to and from school. They went on to win numerous Salter Cups at the Killarney Regatta races during the early 1930s, and never lost a race across Europe and the United States. The most famous of the Casey Brothers, Steve “The Crusher” Casey, emigrated to America, and utilising his signature “Killarney Flip,” was heavyweight wrestling champion of the world during the late 1930s and early 1940s; he was also a storied boxer, defeating US champion Tiger Warrenton in 1940.

TASTING NOTES: Casey Brothers Extra Stout is a fuller flavour version of the classic Irish-style dry stout, with a hefty body and incredibly dense head. We employ a variety of dark malts to capture the essences of espresso, treacle, black bread and dark chocolate. Some Flahavans oats add to the smoothness of this classic beer style.
