Brewing the best IPA at all costs

BRÚ Rí IPA 5% ABV

It’s true, what you put in, is what you get out. Too much and you’re overpowered, too little and you have nothing at all. To strike the right balance in our zesty BRÚ IPA we had to get our hands on the finest Cascade, Herkules, Summit and Citra hops. As a new brewery, we weren’t exactly flush with cash and we knew they would cost us a small fortune, but it turns out it was worth it. Today BRÚ IPA is an award-winning beer with a taste to treasure and was worth every single cent. Whatever it takes... BRÚ IPA is brewed with Irish Pale & Munich Malt, Goldings, Cascade, Herkules, Summit and Citra hops. This IPA is a crisp refreshingly bitter ale, with a blast of citrus, pine and floral scents on the nose.

This IPA nearly was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Importing the finest hops from Southern California comes at a price. These rich hops combine to deliver a crisp, refreshingly bitter ale with blasts of citrus, pine and floral scent. Valuing the best when it comes to producing award-winning beer, we do whatever it takes to deliver it. After betting the house on our most vital ingredient, the result is an IPA worth treasuring. Unfiltered Indian pale ale with hints of mango & grapefruit tasting bitterness.

BRÚ Brewery was rewarded for the investment, receiving a Gold Medal at the World Beer Awards 2016 and Bronze Medal at the World Beer Awards 2015.

Working hard to keep it pure and simple

Like all good things, it begins as a notion. With a delicious red ale in his head, Daire began experimenting on his home brew kit. Testing his recipe on a thirsty panel of friends and family, it wasn’t long until it was getting the thumbs up, inspiring his next notion – opening a brewery. Full of juicy citrus and tangerine flavours, we like to think of BRÚ Red Ale as our Founding Father. A lot has changed since then, but one thing stays the same, our love of brewing this tasty ale for everyone to enjoy. Whatever it takes... BRÚ Red Ale is a modern take on the traditional Irish Red Ale. Malty but full of Cascade and Golding's hop flavour, light on the palate.

Few would believe experimenting with a home brewing kit could lead to a winning recipe. But Daire had faith and carefully crafted this hearty, robust red ale, bursting with caramel and red berry. It was well received by a panel of international judges and received the Gold Medal at World Beer Awards 2016 and European Silver Medal at World Beer Awards 2015.

Everything including our friends and family has grown since then, but doing whatever it takes to brew award-winning ale is still en-grained in our DNA. 

A premium Irish stout.

BRÚ Dubh Stout 4.2% ABV

WE DREAM BIG ABOUT SMALLER BUBBLES.

Take your taste buds back in time to how Irish Stout used to be enjoyed. Back to the good old days. They say stout tasted better back in the day and we agree. To brew the perfect bottled stout we went back to old school brewing and used simple ingredients. Crafted to be enjoyed anytime, BRÚ Stout is as good off the shelf as it is out of the fridge. It took us two years of experimenting to get the sweet, smooth taste of barley and chocolate malt that gives BRÚ Stout that unmistakable old school taste. Whatever it takes... BRÚ Stout is a traditional Dry Irish Stout, brewed using Roasted Barley and Chocolate Malt and a heavy Magnum hop addition. Mixing techniques old and new, our quest led us to create a modern original with roasted barley and chocolate malt giving it a sweet, smooth taste. 

A traditional dry stout, hand brewed using Irish malt and a heavy first hop addition. Roasted flavours with a light bitterness and a dry finish. Unlike our stout, we never settle. Doing whatever it takes to deliver an award-winning brew with every batch. It took time to craft Brú Dubh. The result is an Irish Stout for the ages.

Picaroons meets Brú

We welcomed the guys from Canadian brewery Picaroons to our brewery in Co. Meath recently. We loved this collaboration as It was our first time using Canadian maple syrup & Irish whiskey oak chips.

The brew had been developed by our master brewer Kev Ryan & Picaroons master brewer Iain. They had brewed some beer using Irish whiskey we sent them earlier this year and they returned with the finest Canadian maple syrup and whiskey oak chips. The beer will be nitrogenated so it's silky smooth & should be finished soon and pouring by Christmas. 

A match made in craft beer heaven.
