Murphy's first brewed in Cork in May 1889 is a dry stout or porter. Porter, a dark colored beer was favored by the market porters in London, hence its name. In the late 19th century, breweries began to produce stout, a stronger beer which soon achieved an important place in the market. A dry, light and smooth stout with caramel sweet-bitter flavours and a lingering creamy finish it continues to be the stout of choice amongst our target consumer group.
