FRANCISCAN WELL CHIEFTAN IPA
24 x 330ml CANS
Many modern IPAs have a startling bitterness that discourages the casual drinker- you either love it or you hate it! Chieftain IPA has been designed for casual enjoyment. It has a mild and fresh hoppiness and a moderate alcohol content at 5.5% ABV, but still maintains the powerful presence of an Indian Pale Ale.
Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery and Brew Pub is one of Ireland’s longest-established and best-respected craft breweries. Powered by a dedicated team of expert brewers, the Well is a creative powerhouse when it comes to quality Irish craft beer.
Price includes delivery.
