Kildare Brewing's Soldiers Island is a Pale Ale. The name refers to a dry dock based on the canal, a stone's throw from their brewery. It was an important vantage point for Irish rebels raiding barges in 1798. The same route was used for many years delivering malted barely to Dublin. Their Pale Ale uses a simple malt bill, clean yeast strain and American hops to produce a classic pale ale for any time of the year.
