A Taste of Ireland in Your Neighborhood Beer Jameson’s Drinking Buddies Program Expands Across U.S.A.

June 25, 2015 – Last year’s collaboration between Jameson Irish Whiskey and KelSo Beer Company of Brooklyn was so successful that it is being expanded to five more breweries across the U.S.  The breweries were chosen based on their dedication to the spirit of their neighborhoods that matched Jameson’s own sense of place.

The five breweries are Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles, Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in New York, Deep Ellum Brewing Company in Dallas, Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver, and Hilliard’s Beer in Seattle.

The result of the Drinking Buddies program is a special beer from each brewery matured in Jameson whiskey barrels.  For the full story of each brewer’s visit to Ireland and tasting notes on the beers that resulted click here. You can also see the first installment of the video of the beer Buddies visiting Jameson at
