Revel in the rich and decadent Galway Bay X La Pirata Brewing’s ‘Sixty Ships Down’ Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, a tribute to Europe’s top Imperial Stout brewers. Concocted through a collaboration between Galway Bay and La Pirata, this triple-mashed Imperial Stout has spent three months in steel, and has been thoughtfully infused with Madagascan vanilla beans and tonka beans. This meticulous process has resulted in layers of sumptuous milk chocolate and vanilla notes, with the beer further aged in select Bourbon Barrels to achieve a well-rounded profile. This beer’s richness and decadence are unparalleled, marking it as the most indulgent Imperial Stout to date.
The stout takes its name from the ‘invincible’ 1588 Spanish Armada, whose ships sank along Ireland’s western coast, sending many Spanish sailors to seek refuge in Galway. We like to imagine they would have found solace in an ale as delightful as this one.
This exceptional brew stems from a unique partnership. La Pirata, known for their daring and artisanal brews, began their journey in home kitchens, perfecting their craft and eventually bringing La Pirata out from obscurity. Similarly, Galway Bay Brewery was born out of frustration with the Irish beer scene. Founded in 2009, the friends behind the brand have worked tirelessly to create flavourful and diverse beers, including this remarkable Imperial Stout.
Whether you’re a fan of Irish beers, enjoy a well-crafted brew, or simply seek to treat yourself, ‘Sixty Ships Down’ promises a delightfully complex and indulgent experience. Order online now and let this exceptional beer transport you back to a bygone era of adventure and seafaring. Unearth the decadence and relish in the taste of this stout, steeped in history and flavour.
