D.E.W. & A Brew
For the best boilermaker, pair Tullamore D.E.W. Irish whiskey with the beer of your choice
The boilermaker AKA D.E.W. & A Brew
A ball o’ malt and a pint of plain are an old favourite in Ireland. This combination of beer and whiskey was made popular by the newly arrived Irish in America as The Boilermaker. And now, we are reigniting this tradition with D.E.W. & A Brew.
Tullamore D.E.W. is a triple distilled, triple blend of all three types of Irish whiskey – Single Malt, Grain and Pot Still whiskey. It is this blend of all three types of triple distilled whiskey, and in particular the inclusion of Single Malt, that sets Tullamore D.E.W. apart as the perfect accompaniment to any beer.
What is your perfect boilermaker pairing?
Pairing an IPA with our whiskey
Originally brewed in England with extra hops to survive the journey to India, the hoppiness of IPA brings out the overt sweetness of Tullamore D.E.W. and highlights the dry tones of the beer. The whiskey’s sweetness balances and contrasts, while the oak complements.
Pairing Stout with our whiskey
A classic Irish pairing. Stout features highly roasted malts and grains for coffee and cocoa flavours, rich mouthfeel and a very dark appearance. The vanilla and toffee flavours in the beer highlight the spiciness and complexity of the whiskey.
Pairing Red Ale with our whiskey
Red Ales are moderate to heavy in flavour and contain hints of fruit, caramel and/or toasted malt that is offset by the predominant hop characteristic of the beer. A less sweet combination of beer and our whiskey, it brings out the rich cocoa and nutty tones of Tullamore D.E.W.
