About Banshee Irish Red by Barnhouse Brewery

A malt-focused easy drinking beer that exhibits some malt sweetness, followed by some light roast, and a somewhat dry finish. Barnhouse uses English Pale malt, a touch of crystal malt, roasted barley, and English hops. The word "banshee" is a Gaelic term for a female spirit. Legend has it that around the 1840s, the owner of the farm that is now Banshee Reeks Park in Loudoun County, Virginia heard strange cries and sounds in the woods that he believed were wailing banshees.


We are a small country brewery that focuses on making great beer for our local community. We make every effort to use locally grown ingredients from our home grown hops to produce and grain from our local farmers.
