Notes/Commercial Description:
BIG. HOPPY. RED. Irish beer gone incognito! Our IRA has a beautiful burnt orange/red color with the unmistakable aroma and flavor of American hops. This beer is brewed to be dry with full flavor of Nugget, Apollo & Cascade dry hopping. With over two pounds of hops per barrel (that's a lot) its like no beer ever brewed in Erie.

Lavery's Imperial Red Ale has gone through minor changes over the years, but all for the better. They have really perfected the recipe. A hoppy/malty flavor bomb that will satisfy the taste buds.
On tap or in 22 oz bomber bottles, this is one of my all time favorites.
