BREWING HISTORY: Originally brewed in Cork, Ireland, Murphy’s Irish Stout has long
embraced its reputation as a craft product. After years as a solely local stout, the acquisition of the brewery by Heineken in 1983, with a consequent expansion in distribution and international television advertising, exposed Murphy’s to the international drinking community.
