Default Kilkenny availability in the US

Does anyone know if Kilkenny is distributed in the US, and if so where? I'm in AZ and would like to get a bottle/can or 2 for a friend who loves this beer. Open to a beer swap.

Isn't Kilkenny marketed as Smithwicks in the US?

No, they aren't the same beer. Smithwick's is an Irish Red Ale brewed by a brewery owned by Guiness. Kilkenny, on the other hand, is an Irish cream ale. I have no idea where you could get Kilkenny in the US, I've only had it in Ireland. Sorry, I'm not much help, haha

There must be more than one Kilkenny, then, because BJCP thinks Kilkenny is an Irish Red.


EDIT:


And it would appear that it is Smithwick's, and it is an Irish Red:
