St. Patrick's Day is a day to celebrate Irish culture and heritage, and what better way to do that than with a delicious stout from McAllister Brewing Company? For the second year in a row, McAllister's has released a special stout for the occasion: Leprechaun Balls. This unique stout is infused with the flavors of coconut and cinnamon, making it the perfect way to toast the luck of the Irish. The official Release date is March 17th, 2023.
Last year, Leprechaun Balls made its debut and was an instant hit with beer enthusiasts. It was so popular that McAllister's decided to bring it back for another year. The stout has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that is characteristic of stouts, with a delightful twist of coconut and cinnamon flavors that create a perfect balance of sweetness and spice.
To achieve this unique flavor profile, McAllister's uses high-quality ingredients and expert brewing techniques. The coconut flavor comes from toasted coconut that is added during the brewing process, while the cinnamon flavor comes from a carefully selected blend of spices that are added to the brew. The result is a complex and delicious flavor profile that is unlike any other stout on the market.
In addition to its great taste, Leprechaun Balls also has a unique name and label design that captures the playful spirit of St. Patrick's Day. The label features a mischievous leprechaun holding a pint of the stout and a handful of "leprechaun balls" - small, round treats made of coconut and cinnamon.
This year, McAllister's is also offering a limited edition version of the stout that has been aged in bourbon barrels. The barrel aging process adds a whole new level of complexity to the beer, with notes of vanilla and oak that complement the coconut and cinnamon flavors. This limited edition version is sure to be a hit with beer connoisseurs who appreciate the added depth and richness that barrel aging can bring to a beer.
To celebrate the release of Leprechaun Balls, McAllister's is hosting a special St. Patrick's Day event at their brewery. Visitors can enjoy pints of the stout, along with other seasonal favorites and classic McAllister's brews. The event will also feature live music, Irish inspired food, and other festive activities to make the day extra special. Chef Andrew has made a perfect pairing for the dessert known commonly to any Philadelphian as Irish Potatoes. A cinnamon-covered coconut roll!
Leprechaun Balls will be available only at the brewery AND only for as long as it lasts. This limited edition stout is sure to sell out quickly, so be sure to grab a pint (or a few) while you can.
In conclusion, McAllister's Leprechaun Balls coconut cinnamon stout is a must-try for anyone looking to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style. Its unique flavor profile, playful label design, and limited availability make it a beer that is sure to become a fan favorite. So raise a glass and toast to the luck of the Irish with a pint of Leprechaun Balls. Sláinte!
