All Natural Beer

SBC-Chocolate-Stout-USOpen-MedalKeep Shannon Beer Cold Whenever Possible. Our beer is as natural as we can make it: brewed with pure spring water, whole grain, whole flower hops and a whole lotta love. Our fire-brewed beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized and uncompromisingly awesome!

It is our opinion that filtering and/or pasteurizing beer strips out flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. We believe unfiltered and unpasteurized beer is more natural, tastes better and is better for you.

Because our beer is an all-natural product, it should be stored cold (<45º F). When our beer is stored at room temperature or above, any remaining yeast (even though you don’t see the little guys) may become reactivated and start producing CO2. As a consequence, improperly stored beer will become over carbonated and its flavor will degrade rapidly. This is especially true in our Chocolate Stout because of the high residual sugar content. 

Some thoughts:

  • Almost all beer is best when it is young (under 90 days old)
  • Shannon Brewery beer will be excellent up to 90+ days as long as it is stored cold (45º F – 35º F)
  • Shannon Brewery beer will only last about 30 days when stored at high temperatures (>75º F)
  • If you are ever dissatisfied with any of our beer, bring the container to our brewery. We will gladly exchange the empty container for a product of similar value.
