West Mayo Brewery were delighted to be invited to Höchstadt an der Aisch in April 2016 to participate in their celebration of the 25th anniversary of their Beer Keller Club on the Beer Day of Saturday April 23rd which was the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Beer Purity Law called Reinheitsgebot.
Höchstadt an der Aisch is in Franconia, the northern part of the Bavarian/Bayern province where they have a proud brewing tradition and the greatest density (and quality!) of breweries probably in the world. The welcome we recieved was wonderful and we were very grateful to be so well looked after and to see all the interesting sights and learn all the local beer styles.
We have a photo album on our Facebook page that you can see here!
Well, it took a while because we are only little, but the grist and the brew sheet are ready for tomorrow's 100th brew!
The brew will be of Clew Bay Sunset, which was also the beer we made on our first brew just over two and a half year's ago - and in about 3 weeks time, you may be sampling it! Sláinte!
We are delighted to have been included in John & Sally McKennas' Guides 2016!
The plaque has gone on the brewery wall beneath the one for 2015.
Thanks to all who are supporting us and we promise to keep the standards high and producing high quality craft beers for you!
We are delighted to say that Oilean Eadaigh West Mayo Brewery beer will shortly be on sale in Hamiltons Bar in Belgorod. So bog myrtle from near our lake on Hilltop Farm in West Mayo will soon be enjoyed in our Paddy's Pilgrims Porter in Russia! Our other beers will also be on sale in Hamiltons and the Russian barstaff are ready with their t-shirts and Mayo flags.
The set of photographs show the route taken - bog myrtle near the lake, Konstantin and Nataly from Hamiltons inspecting the product at our brewery, the van loaded with one-trip kegs and ready to go. And finally, Hamiltons getting ready for the beers. Enjoy folks!
Thanks to Kelly's Mountain Brew Ltd in Clane, County Kildare, who are exporting our beers to Hamiltons in Russia along with their own. They will all be leaving from Clane together next week, giving plenty of choice of quality Irish Craft Beer to Belgorod!
