Their Award-Winning Process

BreweryShannon Brewing Company beer is an ode to the elements, as well as the old days. They use an old-school fire-brewing process that originated in the oldest Irish brewhouses. Their all-natural beer starts with pure Texas spring water, top-quality malted barley, and whole flower hops.

These premium ingredients get to know each other through the fire-brewing process during which they blend and delicately caramelize. This makes both the flavor profile and the aroma wholesome, yet complex—for one-of-a-kind beers you won’t find anywhere else.

Unlike many other brewing processes, Shannon Brewing Company’s process is free of filtering and pasteurizing. They believe these unnecessary steps can strip the flavor from the beer and create an unnatural muteness to the taste.

A Beer Selection like No Other

Their beer selection features a variety of year-round, barrel-aged, rotating beers. Anytime of the year, you can enjoy a Shannon Irish Red, a Shannon Tejas Light, or a Shannon Mór IPA. Or, you can opt for a keg of barrel-aged Shannon Chocolate Bourbon Stout or Shannon Chocolate Rum Stout.

To ensure you enjoy your beer at its full potential, their website is also laden with helpful serving and storage instruction. Check out their “Our Beer” page to learn more about what temperature your beer of choice needs to be served at or what it should be enjoyed with.

Or, you can always stop into the Shannon Brewing Company taproom and beer garden, where every beer is served to perfection. Enjoy a beer sampling at the bar top or cool off with a cold one out on the patio.

Beer Brewing with a Cause

Their beer is brewed with fire as hot as the one in the hearts of their team, when it comes to giving back to the community.

For starters, Shannon Brewing Company is dedicated to making their community a better place by following strict, self-imposed sustainability guidelines including:

  • BeerCapturing and composting spent trub, rather than contributing to the world’s waste
  • Donating all spent grain to local farmers and ranchers to feed their animals
  • Minimizing water consumption through natural water-source usage
  • Implementing a brewery-wide recycling program, so nothing needs to go to waste

They don’t stop there, though. They also proudly donate to all kinds of local causes and charitable organizations. If you have a cause you’d like them to contribute to, shoot them an email.
