Bull Island Black IPA
The Bull Wall and the Wooden bridge construction began in 1819 and was completed in 1825. The total length of the wall is 2900 m and it was built to help keep the Liffey clear of silt and debris. Over the next 5 decades following its construction the silt and sand began to build up and create an island, Bull Island. Soon after, Dubliners began to travel to Dollymount beach on Bull Island in Clontarf and visitors continue to this very day.
A Black IPA is not a traditional style, but it is a common enough dark beer that is a cousin to the stout, a hoppy sweet beer that has as much in common with an IPA as a stout. Our Bull Wall Black IPA uses a New England yeast to match the malty notes with a fruity balance.
