Tap Handle #14: Killian's Irish Red - Dagger

One of my favorite taps. More ornate than the MacTarnahan's dagger.

Click through to read more about Killian's Irish Red...


Killian's Irish Red is an amber lager first produced at Lett's Brewery in Enniscorthy, Ireland, in 1864. The beer is named after George Killian Lett, the great-grandson of George Henry Lett (who founded the brewery). In 1956 the brewery closed, but the brand name was purchased by the Pelforth Brewery in France. In the mid 1980s Coors bought the rights to use the brand name in the U.S. It derives its color and taste from a special carmel malted barley that is roasted at a high temperature longer and more slowly than most malts. It has won silver and gold medals at a few beer festivals. Weighted average on ratebeer.com is 2.68 out of 5.
