    So, I pretty much learned how to brew on the Beer Advocate Homebrew Forum, but I haven't been active on here for quite a while. I was out of brewing for about 5 years, but now I'm back! And what better way to come back than to offer up what I think is a pretty darn good recipe!

    This recipe was based on info obtained from the Boulevard Brewing website around 2004. I changed the original 2-row Pale Malt to Maris Otter, because I was on a Maris Otter kick back then, and I had it on hand. Sometime between 2004 and 2010, Boulevard changed their recipe significantly... so this could be called Boulevard "Classic" Irish Ale. Frankly, I think the old recipe was better!

    This is one of my most successful recipes. Enjoy!
