Beer Of The Week: Barnett & Son Irish Red

Those willing to venture to Parker for a visit to Barnett and Son Brewing will find a relaxed taproom with very friendly staff, along with what I would call “comfort barnettbeers”. The tap list contains almost exclusively standard styles with no extreme variations within style or unsual flavor combinations. The ones I sampled stayed true to style – comfortable & accessible with no suprises.  In other words no triple-hopped IPA, or chocolate mint stout. I found the Irish Red to be the most comfortable of the bunch – medium-heavy body, light malt, light hops, and a good balance between them. Definitely nothing adventurous but a good beer to settle back with on a crisp fall evening.
