  2. Hello, I’ll be walking the Dingle way next week and wanted to ask how far off the path I’d go to visit your brewery? Thanks and I hope to see you soon.

    1. You will walk right past us Derek. We are on the R559 which cuts across the Dingle Peninsula and intersects with the Dingle way just up from Wine Stand Beach which brings you to either Ballydavid/Baile N Gall or Ballyferriter/Baile N Fheirtearaigh by the coast depending which direction you are walking. We are adjacent to Bricks Pub/Tigh Bhric. Let me know if you need further assistance. Regards and see you then Adrienne

      1. Adrienne,
        I just wanted to say thank you to you and Paul again. Also, please tell Paul I’m sitting in O’Connors Pub in Cloghane drinking your porter right now.

        1. Hi Derek, delighted!! I have had a rather unfortunate attempt to drive beer to Dublin….. my van broke down!!! but all is not lost I am enjoying a Ruby Red by White Gypsy in Nenagh, The brewer and owner of the business is Cuilan Loughnane, the man I was sitting with in my own bar yesterday! Thank you so much for stopping into us and enjoy the rest of your trip.

  3. looking forward to popping in to you guys next week! Just wondering in advance if Riasc Gold is being produced this year?

    1. Hi Cathal, we have brewed it already this year and it has sold out but it may still be in various premises in Dingle. We are concentrating more and more on specials using the fact that we are so small and enjoying the experimenting. We have a new Facebook page which is run by my Daughter, Maude she updates photos and keeps people in the loop as to what we are up to.
      Check it out.

    i wil be in the dingle peninsula starting july 2nd …. would love to sample the brews
    id also like to have a conversation about the pub for sale next door
    the space and accomidations works for me ….. i also so have a keen weakness for cask conditioned ale
    this situation ticks off many boxes

  5. I was simply driving the Dingle loop road, and following a short hike with a bitter wind at Clogher Head, there was warmth and good ale inside Tig Bhric. Many thanks to the brewmaster who was willing to talk about brewing with me. The only thing I can’t figure out is, if there aren’t any hops grown in Ireland, and Guinness has been brewing since 1759, was there really an international hops trade going on back then?

    1. What and interesting question I hadn’t considered before, there is mention though of hops being grown around Kilkenny but I have not done any research on this myself.

  6. I read about your wonderful beer in the Globe and Mail inToronto. I will be visiting Cork and Kerry in late June, and will stop by for a tour and a few pints.

    Looking forward to sampling your amazing brews.
