A traditional lager with an authentic Irish heritage, based on the Killian’s family’s recipe created for the Killian’s brewery in Enniscorthy, Ireland in 1864. Coors acquired the rights to brew and market the product in America and Killian’s was introduced to the US in 1981.
Killian’s Irish Red derives its distinctive red-amber color and taste from a special caramel malt that has been roasted at a high temperature longer and more slowly than most malts. There are no coloring agents or artificial additives used in brewing Killian’s. The brew is known for its rich amber color and thick, creamy head.
This beer’s name comes from the last member of a brewer dynasty, the Killian, owner of the ‘Mill Park Brewery’ in Enniscorthy, county of Wexford in Ireland. MillerCoors Brewing produces Killian’s in the United States. MillerCoors uses the Killian’s recipes and same tradition of slow-roasting four traditional ale malts to give it a rich flavor and deep chestnut brown color.
