We’ve worked with White Hag, Rascals and Rossa to conjure up these beers. Week to week we spend a lot of time in our Brewtonic Bunker, coming up with new recipes and ehh… testing them out.
Here you will find all of our beers, past and present. We’ve added our tasting notes, the malts and hops used for each beer and a brief description of what to expect.

With the summer months looming, we decided it was time to bring out a refreshing tropical pale ale. It’s rare to come across a good pale ale these days that isn’t bitter and borderline IPA.

Aroma: Tropical fruits – Mango, pineapple, honeydew melon and citrus.

In Cahoots is a collaboration with the Sligo Massif – White Hag Brewing Co. A mutual love of sour beer brought us together to work on this project. This brew is a well balanced session-able kettle sour. It was generously dry hopped and with the addition of elderflower in the boil. It has plenty of citrus and of course elderflower notes. This is also our first beer to be available in bottles.
The second coming of this hard hitter! This porter pays homage to one of the greatest moments in Irish sporting history.
The 13 seconds porter has a subtle taste of roasted coffee, toasty crusty bread, balanced with a combination of smooth dark chocolate and even darker fruits. You can expect a medium bitterness and dry finish that leaves you wanting more. It goes down like Aldo!
Inspired by our love of the Netflix phenomenon that is “Stranger Things”, we decided to brew this up just in time for Halloween.

Aroma: Citrus, gooseberry and tropical fruits

The Long One was limited edition beer inspired by a certain goal which helped Ireland secure a spot in the Euro 2016 tournament.
Harking back to the heady days under the tutelage of Jack ‘give it a lash’ Charlton, the long ball has been a staple of Irish footballing success. From the days of Packie Bonner up to these of Darren Randolph, Irish goalkeepers have mastered the long ball assist. Who better to score from this than the aptly named, Shane. None of that tiki taka nonsense, just give it the long one!
The Long One IPA has a light colour and strong hop flavour. Coming in around the 5% ABV mark, it is a very sessionable refreshing ale without the big bitterness. Magnum hops are used for mild bittering and it is dry hopped with Vic Secret for the fruity hop aroma. Brewed in collaboration with Rascals Brewing, The Long One was the first time we dipped our toes in the IPA waters and it was a long time coming.
Our very first beer brewed with Alex (who has since gone on to set up Whiplash, one of Irelands most exciting new breweries) and Five Lamps Brewing. The amber ale is a hybrid that has a Marzen base comprising almost completely of Munich, CaraMunich and Vienna malts. It is hopped pungently with Simcoe in the back and Falconers 7 C’s up front. On the tastebuds it has slick, bready, toffee and caramel backbone served up with every tropical and citrusy hop that begins with the letter C.
This Ale carries a ruby red colour, with a big fluffy head. This Belgian beauty is a malt forward beast. While sipping on this Ale you can enjoy the subtle taste of raisin and caramel notes, balanced with a silky mouthfeel and lovely Belgian esters.
Brewed to promote the Yes for Marriage Equality campaign this beer is a classic Belgian Farmhouse Saison.
