KELLY'S WESTPORT INN 70th ANNIVERSARY
COUNTY CLARE IRISH RED ALE
Stockyards has teamed up with historic local KC bar Kelly's Westport Inn to help celebrate their 70th anniversary this year. Their location in the heart of the Historic Westport district dates back to the mid-19th century and was once a trading post owned by Albert Boone, a grandson of Daniel Boone. Travelers would stop there for provisions before heading out on westbound routes like the Santa Fe Trail.
The Kelly family hails from County Clare, Ireland, so we've appropriately created a traditional Irish Ale to commemorate this special occasion. The base malt in this classic Irish Ale comes from the Ireland Malting company and the town of Cork, approximately 90 miles south of County Clare.
This promotional beer will run for about 2 months, kicking off with KC Irish Fest. Each beer sale benefits HALO, a Stockyards District neighbor and non-profit caring for homeless Kansas City children, as they work hard to help one more child spend one less day alone.
