'Madra Rua'

Nitro Red Ale

So very proud of our own, Madra Rua. Inspired by the ales of Ireland, this Organic Nitro Red Ale is brewed exclusively for Charlie P's Irish Pub!


Red Ale is a style of beer, usually smooth, sometimes sweet and always...Red!


'Nitro', well that's where things get extra interesting. With Nitro (beers that are brewed and then

served with a mix of Nitrogen and CO2), the beer will have finer bubbles, a denser head, and a creamier mouthfeel.


With our Madra Rua Nitro Red Ale there were a few things we were after when developing the beer to make it a stand out from other Red Ales out there.

  1. 100% organic
  2. a dense and creamy pour.
  3. a cheery red color.
  4. a malty, light berry aroma.
  5. a spicy, caramel taste.

As for the name, 'Madra Rua'. This is a Gaelic expression for a Fox (a direct translation will in fact give you Red Dog!)

Ronan came up with this as the name for the Nitro Red Ale for two reasons.


The first, Foxes are his favorite animal. Growing up in Dublin he played for Pembroke Cricket Club, their emblem was of course...a Fox :) The second reason is much more obvious, the red connection between foxes and the Ale!


We have always had beers from Brauhaus Gusswerk in the pub (Nicobar IPA, AAA, Steinbier and Horny Betty our current lot). Naturally along the way, talking to owner Reini about all things beer, ideas come up.


Over the years Reini has made a Cider and a Stout for the pub too. But with the Nitro Red Ale we have really hit it off. It's a huge success for us and has to be said, a great collaboration between Charlie P's and Brauhaus Gusswerk. Long may it continue!

"I founded the Gusswerk brewery with the aim of realizing my dream and establishing "the Austrian organic brewery". "Flavour is everything - brewed on foundation" is our motto.

Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin

The name Madra Rua resonates with Ronan on a couple of levels, firstly from his cricket playing days at Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin, whose emblem was of course... a Fox :)

So very proud of our own, ‘Madra Rua’. Inspired by the ales of Ireland, this Organic Nitro Red Ale is brewed exclusively for Charlie P's Irish Pub in Vienna by 'Brauhaus Gusswerk' in Salzburg!

BEER DESCRIPTION

This flavorful work of brewing art delights on so many levels due to its fruity-aromatic fragrance.

Soft hop tones on the tongue, paired with very fine malt, with light roasted notes hints of currant and raspberry and a soft finish.

Master Brewer Reini Barta

own way". "Flavour is everything - brewed on foundation" is our motto.

ABOUT THE BREWER

Brauhaus Gusswerk founder & Brewmaster Reinhold Barta takes great pride in his work — you can taste it in every glass.

.

Reini is a pioneer in the Austrian brewery scene. He was always fascinated by beer making, and when he went to work at a Brewery in Cork city in Ireland for a year, he found a new love: Irish Red Ale.


On his return home to Austria, he introduced this beer style to the Austrian brewery scene where it quickly became very popular. At the time, the craft beer movement had not even begun.

Then came the opportunity to make the perfect Nitro Red Ale for Charlie P's! This fine, creamy smooth RED ALE using no less than 7 different Hop varieties, brewed exclusively for Charlie P's by Reini is a true Nitro Red Ale masterpiece.


"It is because of these "Irish roots" that Madra Rua RED ALE is so authentic and extremely pleasant to drink. Something for everyone!" - Reini Barta
