Yardsman Original Double Stout, Yardsman American Pale Ale 4.7% & Yardsman Tropical Rye Ale 5%.

In July 2017 Hercules launched Ireland’s first craft nitro can stout – Yardsman Original Double Stout Nitro Can (4.3% ABV). The innovative packaging method, which qualifies the creamy Belfast Double Stout as a nitro stout, involves ‘nitrogenising the can’ by replacing CO2 with nitrogen. A traditional Belfast Double Stout which has a rich creamy mouth–feel and is perfectly balanced. It has a rich, dark colour with lots of roasted malty characteristics and delicate chocolate and coffee notes.
