Brewed in the heart of Connemara.
Here at Connemara Brewing Co., we are very proud of our beers. Our focus is on making a small number of beers really well - consistently high-quality beers is what we’re all about. Connemara is blessed with some of the highest quality water in the world, which combined with the highest quality raw materials, and crafted by the know-how of our world-class brewers, results in beers with consistently high quality.
All our beers are made from scratch here in our brewery in the heart of Connemara, using traditional recipes and the best possible local ingredients which we source directly from our carefully selected producers.
MEET THE TEAM
Our brewery is led by one of the foremost brewers in Ireland, and a real west of Ireland woman. Aine moved home to Galway following a phenomenally successful and diverse career in brewing. Aine has been brewing continuously since finishing her science degree almost 20 years ago (further complimented by a Masters in Brewing & Distilling). She has started and ran both start-up craft and large international breweries and now invests all that experience and skill into producing what we believe are some of Ireland’s best beers.
After over 10 years in New Zealand, Phil moved back to Ireland and came west to create our brews in the start of 2022.
Phil has 15+ years experience in the alcohol & FMCG industries. He has founded and ran multiple businesses during that time internationally. He loves what we are aiming to become at Connemara Brewing Co. & is loving the journey so far. When it comes to brewing Phil specialises in styles ranging from traditional to extremely experimental and is comfortable with both.
His enthusiasm for brewing is very contagious and is full of passion
