Brewer's Notes: The original batch of St. Stephen's Green was Batch #10 at Mystery.  We launched just before St. Patrick's Day and realized quickly that it would be silly to not celebrate the holiday with a beer.

 

This recipe relies on the combination of Roasted Barley and a fairly big (for a stout) helping of Acidulated Malt.  Both reduce the pH of this low alcohol beer lending a dry, roasty-bitter mouthfeel.  The Acidulated Malt follows up with a light lactic tang, like you would find in the prototypical Dry Irish Stout: Guinness.

 

The only change we've made to this recipe since the original brew in 2012 was the addition of North Carolina grown and malted malt.  Riverbend's Heritage malt give a sweet biscuity complexity that just serves to make the beer even better.

 

St. Stephen's Green is a park in Dublin that houses a bust of the great Irish author James Joyce.
