One of the Big Three Irish stouts along with Guinness and the next stout on our list, Murphy's is a lighter, sweeter alternative. If that only makes a drinker want more of it, Murphy's highly sessionable 4% alcohol by volume should remove any fears of a nasty hangover by night's end.
Murphy's history in Ireland stretches back to 1856, when it was brewed at a facility known as Lady's Well Brewery. The name changed to Murphy's Brewery in 1983 when the company was bought by Heineken International. Even after the big-beer takeover, Murphy's remained the less-bitter alternative to a Guinness and is most likely to be the stout on tap in a non-Guinness pub.
