Galway Bay Brewery: About The Brewery

Galway Bay Brewery


Going from strength to strength

The Oslo was the start of Galway Bay Brewery and remains our flagship pub based in Salthill; our owners Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh added a brewery on site in 2009, making The Oslo one of the country’s first brew pubs. Since then Galway Bay Brewery has expanded operations to 11 bars based in Galway and Dublin and have grown and re-positioned the Brewery just outside of Galway in Oranmore. We now produce four core beers along with a plethora of rotational beers that are released throughout the year.

With the installation of our new brew house we are turning our focus towards exporting and making our beers available in the UK and Europe.

Cheers for craft beers!

We have a core range of beers available year round: Full Sail, Bay Ale, Althea and Buried at Sea available at most independent off-licences around Ireland. Keep an eye out for our rotational taps with limited edition brews and seasonal bottle releases! Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the most up to date news on GBB.

It's great to see the @galwayjazz GJF19 programme officially launched. It's all about sustainability folks! They even managed to slip in a lovely flyer between the vegetable ink programme that has flower seeds stitched into the fully biodegradable paper, once placed on the ground and watered will leave nothing but lovely flowers in its place. We can't wait for the festival to kick off and we are super proud to help sponsor such a great events #wecraftbeer

REQUIEM will be pouring into these fine chalices from today! This Black IPA is brewed with a base of Golden Promise, Carafa III, Munich, Wheat & Oats. It's hopped intensely with Simcoe, Amarillo & Colombus throughout the boil, whirlpool & dry hop. The first taste is Pine resin & bitter chocolate, with a mouthfeel reminiscent of chocolate brownie. All elegantly carried by a beautifully bright nose of pine, orange zest, blackberries & topped with perfectly dense foam from its 100% spunded carbonation. Drink fresh to savour the hops, or set some aside for 6 months & let the dark side in. 7% ALC VOL | 440ml Cans

New cans hitting shelves this week! FIELD MUSIC is our rustic Pils. Mashed with German floor malted pilsner malt & a bale of fresh cut Hay. Generously hopped in the kettle with Saaz, then a gentle dry hop with more Saaz, before being lagered to perfection. FIELD MUSIC is that beautifully crisp, clean & bitter beer you’ve been craving.
