Lett's Brewery

Lett's Brewery

Lett's Brewery (officially Mill Park Brewery) was a beer manufacturer based in Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland. It opened in 1864.

Owned by G.H. Lett & Co., Ltd., the brewery halted beer production in 1956. It was the last small independent brewery in Ireland. However, since 1981 Lett's allowed its famous Enniscorthy Ruby Ale recipe to be brewed under license by Coors of Colorado, USA. It is now marketed as Killian's Irish Red.

In France, the same beer was marketed by Pelforth as George Killian's Biere Rousse.
