Bay Ale, Dublin,

About Althea

Althea is a modern American Pale Ale. Unlike many pales, Althea is low on bitterness, yet massively hoppy on the aroma. Named after one of our head brewer’s favourite Grateful Dead songs; Althea is a beer that can be enjoyed by the pint or by the glass!


Draught Bay Ale is available in all Galway Bay Brewery bars in Galway and Dublin.

Also available in good off-licences. Ask your local off-licence to stock our beer!
