Latest Development!

Did you know you can develop photographic film in beer? Amazing article in A study of brewers portraits, all developed in film.

We are delighted to welcome our friends, Brian and Rachel from @_nobo_ to the brewery to finally brew something special together. We first met Brian and Rachel not long after we formed the brewery and have stayed in touch ever since, sharing advice and stories of two young Irish start-ups. Brewing a beer together is something that we have discussed ever since the first time they visited our brewery in Bray.
Using their Smooth & Creamy Chocolate bar and button as the inspiration, we came up with a recipe to bring the bar to life, putting a new twist on our Apex Oatmeal Stout. Brewed with as much oats as the mash tun could take and using the same Congolese Cocoa nibs and toasted flaked Coconut used to give Nobó's Smooth & Creamy bar it's delicious signature flavour.

Tours are also back at the Wolf - details here

The next release in our 7 Virtues Series will be available from next week. We are really excited about this beer - Old Brown, or Oud Bruin in Flemish, is a dark beer with a mild sourness that has been brewed in West Flanders since the 17th century.

Now isn't that a sight for sore eyes? Midaza stout bottled. Off the shelf or cold; the choice is yours
Available from ourselves next Monday and from Cork Heritage Pubs and select off licences from Wednesday

Yellowbelly Got Cider!

On tap at Brewery!Please meet our new wee cider, Black and Blue. A beauty indeed. Crafted with blackberries and a whack of local blueberries from @brownsfamilyfarm, it is off dry (~1.5oBrix), purple, tart and delicious. 5.5% ABV. Enjoy!


Great to meet up with Niamh and Ruairi from BiaSol in person again. Niamh and Ruairi take some of our spent brewers' grains and convert them into sustainable
flour for baking. Delighted to hear that they're expanding and moving into bigger premises in Tullamore.

BRÚ Brewery

No matter what time of year it is, a good lager is an easy choice!😋
Our core BRÚ Lager isn't just delicious, but it also happens to be gluten-free and vegan, making it even more tempting!🍻
Plus it's available in bottle or can, so this really is the lager for everyone


A wise man once said: “You’re not really drinking alone if your dog
 is home” No one can win hearts like dogs, if you don’t believe us

Maharani Gin launches with Supervalu!

We are delighted to announce that Maharani Gin is now available with Supervalu 

nationwide and online. To celebrate we are running a special introductory offer 

of €35 (normally €45) with Supervalu. This special offer is for a limited time only

Kinsale Mead won the Irish Drink of the Year award from the 

Irish Food Writers’ Guild. This was a fantastic achievement for us...but there was 

a slight problem: The drink than won this massive accolade, our Wild Red Mead - 

Merlot Barrel Aged - we had run out and couldn't send it out to anyone who wanted

 to taste the greatest Irish drink of 2021. 
You know what's coming next though, don't you?

Our award-winning Wild Red Mead - 
Merlot Barrel Aged Mead is back!

On Friday the brewers were busy sampling this year's crop of Strata from @indiehops thanks to our friends  @loughranbrewingstores
What we are looking for in Strata is a hop full of dank resin, 
citrus and grapefruit that will come through in the dry hop of our Elevation Pale Ale and Mammoth IPA.
