Here at Carlow Brewing Company, also known as O’Hara’s Brewery, we craft brew traditional Irish beers and our own interpretation of international beer styles, including our stouts and ales, wheat beers and lagers, all carrying the brewery founders family name, O’Hara’s.
Each beer is crafted using classic brewing methods to create the traditional Irish beers styles that have long since been forgotten by many of the larger breweries. We use just four main ingredients; water, malts, hops and yeast to produce the highest quality craft beer range. We hope you share in our passion, taste our beers and enjoy the experience.
Carlow Brewing Company are committed to sourcing their raw materials from sustainable suppliers. The company sources their malt from maltings who hold certification from the Irish Grain Assurance Scheme. The company also plans to increase the percentage of their raw materials sourced from certified sustainable producers to 80% by 2018.
Carlow Brewing Company are involved in a number of community initiatives in their local area of Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow. One such initiative includes the Maltings Project, a plan to restore a landmark building in Bagenalstown that dates back to the late 1700's and is intrinsically linked to Ireland's brewing and distilling heritage. This project will also include the development of a visitors centre.
