Ask for Bridewell.

Bridewell Red


A dry, light-bodied Irish Red Ale with roasted barley character and a twist of Belgian Dubbel malted barley.

Pairs well with roasted meat dishes.

Bridewell Blond


Brewed in Clifden with the pure soft water that the Atlantic weather brings to the Connemara hills, Bridewell Blond is a blond ale with a distinctive all-malt flavour from Pilsner and wheat malts and a balanced noble hop character, a beer influenced by Belgian blond ales.
Drier and with less alcohol than its Belgian cousins.
Pairs well with seafood and quite happy to be enjoyed on its own.

Bottled Beers

Limited Editions

Back by popular demand.


Celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the First Non-Stop Transatlantic Flight by Alcock and Brown from St John's, Newfoundland that landed near Clifden, Co. Galway in 1919, we brewed two limited edition beers: Pilot and Navigator.

Pilot Transatlantic Gold is a Golden Ale and Navigator Transatlantic Brown is a Brown Ale.

The 2020 limited editions are available.

Bridewell Kölsch-style


Brewed from Connemara water, extra pale Pilsner malt and Tettnang hops.
Beer brewed in the Kölsch style, it is a study in subtle flavours.  Light-bodied, dry and balanced with subdued malt and pared-back hop aroma.  
The agreeable nature of Kölsch means that it will get along well with many foods.  A summer beer.



Ale inspired by Dark Lager

Dark chocolate, coffee flavours, light body, citrus and currant hops

Limited edition first brewed in 2018
