Flavour By Design

When it comes to enjoying beer, we like full on flavour.

That’s why we hand-craft our beers in small batches using carefully selected hops to make a punchy, tasty brew.

We have just opened our new brewery which will give us better consistency across batches. They don’t call it craft for nothing! Our new brewery has a greater capacity too, which means more delicious beers for everyone! Vive la revolution!

Try our beers at any of our eight bars in Galway and Dublin. You’ll never go back to mass market beer again.

Full Sail


The simple malt bill gives an ABV of 5.8% which carries the flavour and allows the hops to shine through .Added are multiple additions in the kettle before it reaches you as fresh as it can be! It is great with spicy foods, such as tacos and salty foods such as fried fish.

Stormy Port

Irish Porter

This Rich and complex beer boasts its roasted coffee notes and hides certain sweetness and chocolate flavours in the background. The Stormy Port is most at home with rich stews, roast meat dishes and can find its place alongside dessert dishes.

Bay Ale

Irish Red Ale

This copper-coloured, malt-forwards offering is the go-to beer for pretty much anything you can think of. Try with salads, roast meats, cold meats, simple cheeses and salmon dishes

Buried at Sea

Milk Chocolate Stout

Taste of chocolate and smooth mouthfeel, due to the additions of dark chocolate and milk sugars (Lactose) respectively. While dark and rich this beer finds balance in its lightness and drinkability. Great for matching with sweeter dishes and intense desserts.

Of Foam and Fury

Double IPA

Beoir beer of the year 2014 winner, Of Foam and Fury!

This double IPA is hazy orange, dense bubbly white head, good lacing. Aroma - big tropical fruits, sweet fruity malts, grapefruit pith, lots of pithy resinous fruits, super aroma.


Our new session ale

Althea is a modern American Pale Ale. Unlike many pale ales, Althea is low on bitterness, yet massively hoppy on the aroma. Althea is a beer that can be enjoyed by the pint or by the glass!

They say timing is everything... The craft beer bubble was burst once again last week. After months of rumours & speculation Beavertown announced a partial sale to Heineken. In May of this year we had Jonny & Owen from Tempus Project & Beavertown over to brew with us at Galway Bay. Ive known the guys for a few years & consider them close friends. This collab was born out of friendship, respect & was brewed with the best of intentions. Its a great beer brewed with two great friends. Which is why we are releasing it. Cheers! Polyrhythm is our collab with @beavertownbeer. Its a 7.2% IPA brewed with Golden Promise, Oats, Raw Wheat & Carapils. Hopped heavily in the kettle & whirlpool with Idaho 7. Fermented with New England yeast & dry hopped with 15g per litre of Idaho 7, Simcoe & Azacca. The result is 7.2% ABV of deliciousness! Big on tropical & citrus aromatics, soft on mouth feel, low on bitterness. Best enjoyed with friends!

Dead Flag Blues is that point where Beer meets Country Wine. We brewed this Beer/Wine hybrid with 48% by weight of blueberry & 52% by weight of malt, then fermented it with wine yeast. The result is a beautifully delicate, fruity, tart & dry beer with layered berry notes that pours an amazingly bright & fun colour. Its the perfect beer for the season.
