The St Patrick’s Day Quesada Keg is back by popular demand and stronger than ever! While still utilizing a complex blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos cloaked in a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper, the 2017 blend has been tweaked for increased strength to match the heavier imperial stouts that beer enthusiasts have come to love. The Keg will continue to be dressed in the same distinctive “barrel” packaging. Additionally, a 6 x 54 Belicoso, packed 20, has been added to the line and now joins the Toro, Gordo, and Lonsdale sizes from last year. The Quesada Keg is made at the Plasencia factory in Nicaragua and retails from $5.95 – 8.95.

As beer lovers continue to demand stronger “high gravity” beers, we felt it was necessary to provide a blend this year that could be paired with these potent brews as well as those traditional Irish stouts we all know and love. Consequently, the Quesada Keg 2017 is a more intense version of the 2016 edition while still maintaining the general profile of last year’s blend. Enjoy! Terence Reilly
