It’s that time of year again when good folks around the world begin to embrace their Irish roots (in some cases based on actual Irish roots). At Short’s, we join the spirit of the season with this week’s bottle release of Uncle Steve’s Irish Stout!
First conceived in 2008 by its namesake and longtime Short’s packaging guru, “Uncle Steve” Ison, this brew is a good ol’ dry Irish stout. Uncle Steve’s has a dark color, soft head, and smooth full flavor typical of this lighter-bodied style. A simple grist formula provides a base of roasted malt flavors and the addition of flaked barley contributes to the creamy drinkability everyone loves. At 4.5% ABV and 20 IBU, Uncle Steve’s is the perfect companion for all of your mid-March celebrations.
A total of 1,596 cases were released in Michigan this year and should be available this week at your favorite craft beer retailer. Raise a pint, do a jig, and count yourself among the lucky: St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and Uncle Steve’s Irish Stout is back!
