Beamish and Bulmers

6 Apr

One of the best things about traveling is trying things that are not available in the United States. I really enjoy trying new beers and found myself wondering why we don’t have the two drinks, Beamish and Bulmers, in the US.

The first drink I had in Ireland was the Irish Stout called Beamish, and it was delicious. It’s somewhat similar to Guinness in the sense that they are both dark, but, in my opinion, it was smoother and tasted a little better. The other drink I had almost every time we went out was a hard cider called Bulmers. The Beamish was more of a filling drink; therefore, I stuck with Bulmers so I wasn’t full before my food came!

Beamish has been around for more than 200 hundred years and is brewed in Cork. Bulmers, on the other hand, has only been around since the 1930s or so. I didn’t know this until researching the drink, but Bulmers has pear and berry flavored ciders too. Sounds really good! So why aren’t they available to us in the United States? I know they should be and I’m sure they would sell really well.

Have you ever tried Beamish or Bulmers before? If so, write a comment about it and tell me what you think. Should it be more widely available to more countries?

    I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, but it looks like a fantastic, rich beer. I cannot wait to get my mitts on one of those..!
