FINNEGANS Brew Co. Dead Irish Poet Returns for the Season

FINNEGANS, the first ever beer company to donate 100 percent of its profits, is bringing back to life their flavorful Dead Irish Poet Extra Stout for a limited time.

As you remember, The Dead Irish Poet Extra Stout was crafted, brewed and packaged thanks to the incredible support of 260 backers in a Kickstarter campaign held the summer of 2014. Back by popular demand, FINNEGANS is bringing back Dead Irish Poet for the winter months. FINNEGANS worked closely with Damian McConn, head brewer of Summit Brewing Company to create this brew. The extra stout has a rich body and bold flavor, with hints of dark chocolate, espresso and cherries. Inspired by the history of McConn’s homeland, the extra stout is a throwback to pre-World War I beer from Southern Ireland.

Holding true to its name, the Dead Irish Poet has higher alcohol content of 7 percent and a smooth yet brooding, dark taste. The stout pays homage to great Irish writers like James Joyce, William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde.

The Dead Irish Poet is available at local liquor stores and bars across Minnesota.
“The flavor profile on this beer is out of this world,” says Jacquie Berglund, the rambunctious FINNEGANS CEO. “I am not a stout drinker, but I love this beer. It’s a stout that any beer drinker will love, especially at this time of year. And it’s only available for a limited time so beer drinkers and FINNEGANS supporters have got to get their hands on it before it’s gone.”
