The Stag offers Guinness products on draft including Guinness Stout, Harp, Smithwicks and Magners Pear Cider.  For an interesting twist, we are able to provide layered beer beverages. Guinness Stout floating on Harp is our Half & Half, while Guinness Stout floating on Magners Pear Cider is a Snakebite.  When the Scottish Ale, Innis and Gunn, is available we can float Guinness Stout on top to create the Black Scot.

Featured Whiskey of the Month

Laphroig Lore

By maturing the liquid in small batches in five unique casks, Laphroig creates a liquid that is rich, complex, varied and above all storied. Laphroaig whisky  uses different aged liquids ranging from 7 to 21 years, allowing to create the richest possible Laphroaig flavour. As the name suggests, this Laphroaig is inspired by the knowledge and traditions passed down from generation to generation of its distillery managers, blenders and craftsmen.

This whisky was also named 2019 Best No Age Statement Scotch by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.

NOSE

Rich and smoky with seaside minerals and a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops.

BODY

Full bodied.

FINISH

Short, dry finish and a long sweet aftertaste.

PALATE

Richly peaty with a spicy chilli bite.

Tea Menu

Our history begins with Tea. Some of you have been following us through the decades. Some of you question if we will continue to sell our aromatic blends as we develop Neville’s long-held dream and vision. (Neville Gardner is the Owner, Proprietor of McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar and of Donegal Square.) Equally, there are those of you that know us only for your source of malt-based beverages (beer and whiskey) and ask us “why the tea?”

So…come sit with your favorite cuppa (pats chair)…and I will share with you the intent behind the tea.  Browse our full tea menu

Coffee Menu

Our tea is not the only hot beverage we take great care and pride when offering you the flavorful best. For generations, we have chosen for you one of the freshest means of brewing coffee, the French coffee press. In the last two years, we have added a coffee bean grinder to grind it fresh every morning. That first sip of coffee…ahhh.  Browse our full Coffee Menu, delish!

 

Pet-Friendly Dinner Plates

At McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub we pride ourselves with being the most “pet-friendly” business in the Lehigh Valley. Pets may dine outside on our Patty-O or to go! We offer our four-legged best friends a special treat — their own menu. This menu features white rice mixed with carrots (because they are good for the eyes) and topped with your choice of grilled chicken or ground beef. Man’s (or Woman’s) best friend is treated like a King or Queen. (Please note that due to health code restrictions, only certified service dogs may enter the restaurant).
