Bay Ale is a copper coloured, traditional ale with malt and hop aromas and a smooth and well-balanced flavour.
Hoppy, yet malt-forward this ale strikes a great balance. Layered crystal malts together with Munich and a kiss of pale chocolate malt. A delightful showcase of Irish and British malts.

Althea is a 4.8% modern American Pale Ale. Unlike many pales, Althea is low on bitterness, yet massively hoppy on the aroma. Named after one of our head brewer's favourite Grateful Dead songs; Althea is a beer that can be enjoyed by the pint or by the glass!

The simple malt bill gives an ABV of 5.8% which carries the flavour and really allows the hops to shine through. The hops used are of American origin, Colombus, El Dorado and Cascade (45 IBU). With multiple generous additions in the kettle and further dry hopped before it reaches you as fresh as it can be.

This March we dove into our recipe notebooks looking for ideas to inspire the ultimate session-able stout recipe. Here is Ostara Stout our take on the concept of 'Dublin Stout'. Brewed to be complex but quaffable. We took some of our imperial stout tricks and adapted them to a lower ABV base recipe. The result has layered malts with some lovely soft chocolate notes finished with a nice hop zing to help clean the palate. Sláinte
Clean, bright and refreshing, with soft nuttiness and biscuit from the malts and spicy notes from the German Tradition hops. Grassy and floral aromas are enhanced by a rounded mouthfeel to make this a crisp and sessionable beer.

A dry Irish stout with notes of roasted barley, rich dark chocolate and chewy toffee. Oats lend a smooth and silky mouthfeel, making BRÚ Stout an approachable take on the classic style that’s suitable for all occasions. Eight malts give this stout an unctuous and creamy body. Inspired by Brian Boru, renowned as the greatest of the Irish high kings and a celebrated unifier, this exceptional stout is best enjoyed in the company of others.
Brewers notes: "For this beer I stacked a few different specialty malts on top of a Maris Otter base. Malts like Munich, Amber, Crystal, Oats etc. Its a fun style to brew.
For hopping I went for low bitterness & used lots of piney hops like Simcoe & Chinook in the whirlpool & dry hop. A good whack of Mosaic too.
The malt & hops are really well balanced but I think the piney hops just win out at the finish. Its got a pleasant low bitterness, great aroma & a super sessionable.

Built on a base of quality Maris Otter malt then layered with classic California IPA hops Simcoe and Columbus. Columbus gives a big citrus hit with an earthy undertone to give the beer a classic feel. Finally, just to add some tropical high notes, we added a bit of modern Ekuanot hops that deliver a little bit of tropical fruit basket to round things out. Big full-on summer West Coast IPA vibes all August long

This IPA was inspired by a recent trip to San Diego where we drank almost every West Coast IPA in the city! Well that would be impossible but we tried so many versions of the style. Some of the IPAs that we really enjoyed were dry yet had enough body to feel well rounded, very heavily dry hopped and booming with hop character, soft yet highly bittered. But what unites all of the great versions of the style is the ability to remain drinkable and refreshing. This style of IPA felt like the perfect way to showcase our selected lots of Simcoe, a hop that played a huge role in the evolution of West Coast IPA.
An IPA with intense aromas and flavours from an ever-changing blend of hops, meaning that Hop Bomb is always evolving. A simple malt base ensures that the hops take centre-stage. Any bitterness will be balanced with sweetness from the malts, coming together for a juicy beer that’s explosive and refreshing.
Tarte DiemThird Barrel BrewingPineapple Sour - Fruited+4.5%Pint€6.80
Catharina sour, what's that I hear you say. This is a style of beer that emerged in Brazil in the early years of their craft beer revolution. Brazil has a strong German brewing tradition so the idea of berliner weisse with tropical fruits was a natural choice for many brewers. It's more fruit forward than other sours with loads of pulped real fruit for a really full on tropical aroma. This version of the fruit forward style sour was conceived with our friends in @rascalsbrewing to share our love of experimentation and celebrate the Brazilians on both of our teams. Lagoma is a Portuguese portmanteau of the fruit additions in the beer. The beer is brewed on a light base of pilsner malt and wheat, to let the tropical and citrus notes of the fruit shine through. Saúde!

Based on our award winning Plain Porter, this is a smooth tasting creamy stout with a distinctive chocolate aroma and taste from the use of high cocoa solid chocolate added to the copper and chocolate essence.

There's no denying that Cold IPA is a great platform for showcasing the true hop characteristics. We've gone big on the orange notes here with Amarillo, Luminosa and Simcoe. Clean & light bodied with bright citrus.
Oktoberfest Lager. Decoction mashed with the finest German Vienna Malt and delicately hopped with Hallertau Mittelfrüh. Fermented cool with our favourite lager yeast before lagering for 1 month. We went the extra mile with this brew, giving it the lodo treatment. Reducing our brewing water to 1 ppm oxygen by boiling, and further purging the water and brewhouse of oxygen with Co2. We hope you enjoy it. Prost!
