FranciscanWellThe Franciscan Well Brewery was founded in 1998 on the North Mall in Cork City and is built on the site of an old Franciscan Monastery and Well, dating back to the year 1219. Legend has it the water from the well has miraculous and curative properties and people would come from afar to drink from it. The brewery just won two World’s Best Beer awards, one for Rebel Red which won gold as Europe’s Best Amber and the second a bronze for their coffee porter.
BlueMoonBlue Moon Brewing Company was founded by brewer Keith Villa, who first created Blue Moon Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale back in 1995 in downtown Denver, Colorado. After earning his Ph.D. in brewing from the University of Brussels in Belgium, an honor only a handful of brewers have achieved, Keith came back stateside with the idea of crafting beers inspired by Belgian styles. The Belgian-White is still Blue Moon’s flagship beer.
SharpsSharp’s Brewery is a modern brewer of cask conditioned beer. Since its foundation in 1994 at Rock in Cornwall the Brewery has grown rapidly to become the largest brewer of cask beer in the South West and brewer of Doom Bar, one of the UK’s fastest growing beer brands. Sharp’s is committed to brewing great beer from quality ingredients, without artificial additives in probably the UK’s most environmentally friendly brewery.
Oharas webCarlow Brewing Company, also known as O’Hara’s Brewery, craft brews traditional Irish beers and their own interpretation of international beer styles, including stouts and ales, wheat beers and lagers, all carrying the brewery founder’s family name, O’Hara’s. Each beer is crafted using classic brewing methods to create the traditional Irish beer styles using just four main ingredients: water, malts, hops and yeast.

SmithwicksThe number one Irish ale, Smithwick’s has been brewed since 1710, and in that time the brewers have learned a thing or two about beer. A seven-time winner of La Monde gold medal, 300 years on, Smithwick’s is still a favourite with ale drinkers today. In 2011, Smithwick’s launched Smithwick’s Pale Ale, its first innovation since 1987.

It all starts with just one man, but it’s not down to a single ‘eureka’ moment. The history of GUINNESS® beer, draught, or stout is a stirring tale of inspiration, dedication, ingenuity and effort. It’s over two centuries of sublime brewing craft, a remarkable knack for spreading the word and more than a few leaps of faith. It’s the story of how a unique Irish stout became, with a little magic, one of the World’s best-loved beers.

rogue-logo1

Rogue is a small revolution, which expresses itself through handcrafted Ales, Porters, Stouts, Lagers and Spirits, and this is the way we conduct our business. The spirit of the Rogue brand, even the name, suggests doing things differently, a desire and a willingness to change the status quo. A Rogue Ale, Porter, Stout, Lager or Spirit is crafted to give it unique character, innovative in its makeup and brewing, a process that has not compromised quality. We believe if a Rogue Ale, Porter, Stout, Lager or Spirit cannot be all of these things, it should not be made at all. @RogueAles
