Ah, that salt breeze blows in from the Irish Sea and sends that chill through your bones, and you tighten your slicker before slipping into the toasty pub, where the fire crackles beneath the bricks and the barkeep slides you a freshly-drawn mug of this refreshing, ruby-red ale nestled comfortably below the creamy pale head. And as you raise your mug in a toast to your mates, you take a swig, where your senses are rewarded with a sweet maltiness highlighted with toasty caramel and a roasty, dry finish, and as you savor that admirable balance between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness, you realize that McSwiggin’s is more than just a name—it’s a suggestion—so you swig your ale, wipe your mug, and wave for another, because this Irish pub is about drinking, and you’ve found a dandy here that you can cozy up with and go the distance!
