This is the hundredth post and I am delighted to raise a glass of Galway Bay Brewery’s Two Hundred Fathoms to you dear Reader!
I have really enjoyed this voyage so far and hope that you’ve got something out of it as well. As you know I like to try beer from all around the world when I can but Irish craft beers remain closest to my heart.
Two Hundred Fathoms is a whiskey barrel aged imperial stout. Firstly you have to break the wax seal which makes the drinking experience feel special. I don’t know which whiskey barrels it was aged in but no matter it tastes very good. I am getting some vanilla from it, it’s very mellow for a beer with an abv of 10%. The Galway Bay lads know about Porter and Stout as evidenced by their Stormy Port and Buried at Sea but they’ve really surpassed themselves here. It’s rich and fruity and unusually for such a big beer I didn’t feel the need to share it!
There was only eight hundred bottles of this nectar made so if you’re exceptionally lucky you could just find the last one in Galway Bay Brewery’s pubs, in Dublin or, eh, Galway!
Thank you for reading and let me know if there’s anything you would like to see here in the future.
