Draught Beers

Nine Irish Brothers prides itself on having a high-quality draught beer system. In fact, we are one of only a few restaurants in the nation to use an advanced delivery system, which delivers the perfect pint every time. Nine Irish Brothers also proudly serves imperial (20 oz) pints rather than the standard 16 oz “pints” you get everywhere else. O’Bryan’s Nine Irish Brothers uses a line-cooled, mixed gas blending system to deliver our premium selection of beers and cider. We religiously clean and maintain our lines in order to deliver our customers brewery-quality beer. Our West Lafayette location currently carries 12 premium beers on draught, and our Lafayette location carries 14.

If that's not enough to wet your whistle, consider this: Nine Irish Brothers has twice been officially designated as serving the Best Pint of Guinness in the United States by Diageo (the parent company of Guinness), which, in 2008 and again in 2009, conducted a nationwide survey of restaurants, bars, and pubs. The survey asked participants to rate their pint of Guinness against 10 different criteria, ranging from quality of the beer itself to the presentation of the pint. Nine Irish Brothers averaged 9.72 out of 10 points, besting the competition by almost six percentage points. That's right: Nine Irish Brothers beat out pubs in Chicago, Boston, Milwaukee, New York, you name it!

Next time you're in on the West Side, stop by the bar and ask to see the crystal trophys. And while you're up there, ask the barkeep for the best pint of Guinness this side of the Atlantic.

Our Draught beer selections vary by location (each location offers rotating local and regional craft beers), but you will definitely find a staple of Guinness, Smithwicks, Harp, People's Nine Irish Red, and Magner's Cider on tap all the time.
