Connemara Brewing Company launch beer line

June 16, 2021

Located in Carraroe ,Co. Galway, Connemara Brewing Company have launched their beer line for 2021. With a focus on niche beer making, this year people can enjoy their Ale and Lager in a 330ml can.

Connemara’s water quality is noted as being one of the best in the world, which combined with the quality raw materials, and crafted by the know-how of their world-class brewers, brings together a refreshing beer like no other.

All Connemara Brewing Company beers are made from scratch in the Carraroe Brewery, using traditional recipes and as many local ingredients as possible which are sourced directly from carefully selected producers.

This summer’s signature lager is best described as a refreshing, clean and robust lager. It features a pleasingly spicy and floral bitterness from its Žatecký hops, backed up with a slight maltiness from a blend of Irish and continental grains, and a crisp clean finish from the specially selected yeast and open fermentation process.

Irish ale has a long and dignified history. The Connemara Ale is juicy and full of flavour. A perfect hop medley and yeast blend provides our ale with a flavour that will make you want more.

“We’ve kept to those traditional values by producing an open fermented ale with a reddish hue and a beautifully sweet palate that is bursting with hop flavour while remaining low in bitterness. It’s like Connemara sunset in a glass, “explained Aine O’Hora Chief Brewer at Connemara Brewing Company.

This summer Connemara Brewing Company is part of Aldi and Bord Bia’s “Grow with Aldi” program, which means their beers will be available in stores throughout Ireland from June 6th. Connemara Brewing Co are one of a small number of select suppliers chosen as part of the 2021 Grow with Aldi program.

“Working with Aldi and being in store gives us such an opportunity to be visible as a brand and to hopefully get new customers to drink our Ale and Lager. We are right now in independent retail and hospitality venues throughout the west, which has really enabled us to understand our customers more. Through a huge supermarket chain like Aldi we will be in the mainstream and in view to the shoppers of Ireland, we couldn’t be happier with this really brilliant opportunity,” said Aine.

Connemara Brewing Company commitment to taste and quality comes through in their sustainability ethos from brewing to sale. With state-of-the-art technology enabling them to use as little water as possible in their brewing techniques as well as returned grain to farming lands in the locality for a lessened environmental impact. The company also decided on using cans instead of glass bottles as to ensure to lessen their landfill footprint.

The brewery is led by Aine O’Hora who is one of the foremost brewers in Ireland. Aine moved home to Galway following a successful and diverse career in brewing. She 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.

Originally from Dublin, Cormac Lynch moved west to set up the brewery up and running. His family had a small wine company, which led him to study Horticulture in UCD, eventually pursuing his interest in homebrewing and hop growing. After college he moved to London where he worked in a cask ale brewery followed by a stint in a malting facility in California. He moved back to Dublin where he worked in the customer facing side of the beer industry before deciding to move again to Galway.
