Jameson, the world’s favorite Irish whiskey, collaborated with American breweries as part of their Drinking Buddies programs. Continuing on last year’s successful collaboration with KelSo Beer Company of Brooklyn, Jameson selected breweries from across the US who exemplify devotion to the spirit of their neighborhoods and share Jameson’s passion for craft and quality in the beer they produce.
The five breweries include – Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles, Hilliard’s Beer in Seattle, Deep Ellum Brewing Company in Dallas, Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver, and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in New York. Jameson invited each brewery to the distillery in Ireland, and then sent them home with Jameson Whiskey barrels to create a limited edition beer inspired by both their experience in Ireland, and their own unique neighborhood.

Today, Tullamore D.E.W., one of the world’s fastest growing Irish whiskeys, is proud to announce the release of a new variant, Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix. Born by the strength of a town who witnessed the first ever air disaster on record, the new limited edition Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix celebrates the ultimate courage and optimism of the Tullamore people, who driven by a positive spirit, rebuilt their town, and established the Tullamore Distillery in 1829.
It was May 10th, 1785, when the famous hot-air balloon fire occurred at Barrack Street (now Patrick Street) in Tullamore town. The accident created a huge inferno that destroyed much of the town. In the face of this destruction, the undaunted people of Tullamore rebuilt their town over the following decades, including construction of the Tullamore D.E.W. distillery on the very site of the disaster, and the subsequent introduction of its whiskey to the world.
