The Porterhouse Brewery is one of Ireland’s microbreweries that stands out from the competition. Known for producing some of the best beers in the country, the brewery is best known for brewing beers that are a little crazy, cool and innovative. An establishment that has proven itself, and is creating a following among an increasingly demanding public!
It all started with Oliver Hughes and Liam LaHart, two cousins with a passion for beer and brewing. They both decided to create their first brewery in 1983, “Harty’s” in Blessington in County Wicklow. Here they produce a traditional cask beer, malted and lightly hopped. The brewery was a great success, but unfortunately it was unable to keep up with the giants of the industry. They go bankrupt.
But nothing stops the two Irish cousins. In 1996, they put their project back on its feet by opening a micro-brewery in Dublin called: “Porterhouse Brewery Co. This time, they produce independent beers. Their range goes from the full-bodied stout to the lighter lager. This time, the sauce takes: it’s a success. So much so that the brewery has to move to expand. The brewery moved its barrels to Blanchardstown in County Dublin. From then on, their beers were sold in the nearby irish pubs and exported all over Europe.
The public appreciates its beers, and finds in them an originality never seen before! The Porterhouse Brewery Co. brews the Oyster Stout, a beer brewed with fresh oysters! (Don’t be too quick to judge: it’s really worth a little tasting).
Over the years, the brewery has established itself as a household name in Ireland and the rest of the world. So much so, that the establishment has even been able to open 2 irish pubs in Manhattan!
Unfortunately, the Porterhouse Brewery Co. does not offer guided tours to the public. However, its website does allow you to discover how it works and its range of beers.
It should be noted that the brewery clearly distinguishes itself from the competition through less traditional communication. Here, the beers are flanked by a colorful, young and aggressive design. And the beers offered are of an unprecedented originality! Double IPA, milkshake beer, oyster beer… Your palate could be pleasantly unsettled!
The icing on the cake: the brewery relies on high quality ingredients and is constantly innovating to make its production as environmentally friendly as possible. This results in quality beers that are environmentally friendly.
Their range of beers is extremely varied: something to suit all desires and requirements.
Among them are :
In short: a lot of choices that should please the aficionados of artisanal beers!
