"Alley Pale Ale" from Murphy's Irish Pub in Sonoma
If you have never been to Murphy's Irish Pub then the name of their flagship beer may sound a little funny. If you have been there then you will certainly understand. Murphy's is located in an alley (really more of a paseo or breezeway) smack in the middle of downtown Sonoma. Voted the number one place to hear live music in Sonoma this quaint little bar serves up multiple beers on tap and some delicious pub grub including traditional Irish fare.
Their Alley Pale Ale is brewed exclusively for Murphy's by Dempsey's Brewing in Petaluma. With an ABV of 5.2% this beer is a medium bodied smooth & flavorful pale ale with gentle hop character. This very drinkable and flavorful beer that goes perfectly with their Fisherman's Pie.
