The Bastard Clone - GEAGHAN BROS BREWING CO Smiling Irish Bastard
The Bastard Clone is a brewery authorized clone recipe from our friends at Geaghan Bros Brewing Co. Based on Geaghan's Smiling Irish Bastard, our beer kit is for lovers of pale ales, IPAs, and exceedingly drinkable strong ales. From Geaghan's site: "Our brewers' favorite staple beer is copper in color with moderate maltiness and features grapefruit hop character. This pale is brewed with traditional Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest that linger on your palette. The name says it all: American strong, like Officer Bernie Welch, a legend in the Bangor police force. From Freeses’ Department Store through 'Devil’s Half Acre,' with his billy club in hand, he wiped the smile off more than one hooligan’s face while keeping Bangor’s downtown safe."
