Galway Bay Brewery: About The Brewery

Galway Bay Brewery


Going from strength to strength

The Oslo was the start of Galway Bay Brewery and remains our flagship pub based in Salthill; our owners Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh added a brewery on site in 2009, making The Oslo one of the country’s first brew pubs. Since then Galway Bay Brewery has expanded operations to 11 bars based in Galway and Dublin and have grown and re-positioned the Brewery just outside of Galway in Oranmore. We now produce four core beers along with a plethora of rotational beers that are released throughout the year.

With the installation of our new brew house we are turning our focus towards exporting and making our beers available in the UK and Europe.

Cheers for craft beers!

We have a core range of beers available year round: Full Sail, Bay Ale, Althea and Buried at Sea available at most independent off-licences around Ireland. Keep an eye out for our rotational taps with limited edition brews and seasonal bottle releases! Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the most up to date news on GBB.

Goodbye Blue Monday! In cans! Again! We first brewed this beauty back in 2013 in collaboration with our good friends at Begyle Brewing from Chicago. This Oatmeal IPA is brewed with Irish Pale malt & lashings of Irish Oats. Hopped continuously in the kettle with Citra & Colombus, then dry hopped several times with more Citra. It has been brewed in Ireland & Chicago numerous times since 2013 & its remained a fan favorite on both sides of the Atlantic ever since. 6.6% ABV | 440ml. In shops this week along with our new DIPA Double Super Fuzz.
