The company is the first craft brewery in Ireland that can provide traceability for its malting barley. They also brew with their own spring water sourced deep beneath the same land which produces a water chemistry ideally suited to brewing. The flagship product is pale ale which is a take on American Pale Ale (APA) style, with more emphasis on the malt flavour. The spring water is the main ingredient and they add their own pale ale base malt to give the fermentable sugars and flavour to the beer. They also use small quantities of three other European speciality malts, to give more body, texture and additional caramel flavours to the beer. The end creation is refreshing dry hopped golden pale ale with a moderately sweet malt body, balanced with a burst of citrus and hops; and it has won awards. The company has established relationships with national and regional wholesalers in Ireland, as well as major retail chain multiples, off licenses and independent pubs and restaurants. The brewery is located on the family farm where the family has been farming for generations. The company is looking to establish long-term partnerships with distributors and/or wholesalers operating in the alcohol and beverages market through a distribution services and/or commercial agency agreement.
