Mescan brewery is named after Mescan, a monk who was St. Patrick’s friend and personal brewer. It is situated on the slopes of Croagh Patrick near Westport and is owned and operated by Bart Adons and Cillian Ó Móráin, two ex-veterinary surgeons who have been friends and colleagues for nearly 20 years. Bart is Belgian and the pair spent four years perfecting their original recipes for beers inspired by Bart's homeland. Mescan produce artisan Belgian-style beers brewed in small batches with craft, care and attention to detail. They are matured for months before they reach perfection and are released for sale. Their Blond beer is the flagship.
