Only here for the beer — New microbrewery for Galway

A brand new brewery ‘Galway Bay Brewery’ is launching in Galway tomorrow Friday, November 25. Three new beers will be revealed on the night, a new porter (Stormy Port ), a Pale Ale (Full Sail ) and an ale-in-development (Strage Brew ). The brewery will launch at 6pm at The Oslo in Salthill and is open to all.

All who attend between 6pm and 9pm will receive vouchers on the door for two free beers and you can choose between any of the new craft beers on the night.

Over the last few years, the craft beer industry in Ireland has gone from strength to strength, with approximately 14 microbreweries operating in Ireland today. Beer coinnoisseurs from across the country seek out brew pubs in favour of the mainstream bars.

The process of brewing is age-old and greatly appreciated by fans as each brew is lovingly created through a hands-on, complex brewing process. The result is that no two brews are the same while the beer is in development and the unveiling of a new craft brew is cause for celebration among the craft beer community.

‘Galway Bay Brewery’ will be expanding to include brewery tours, talks on the craft of brewing with the Brewer himself and plans to serve their finest products in select city restaurants from November. Eventually, leading to distribution across Ireland and overseas.

This is the latest business venture from Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh, the Galway natives responsible for The Cottage, The Oslo and The Salthouse.

Support local! Pop into the launch on Friday, November 25th from 6-9pm and be among the first to sample these wonderful Galway made craft beers on site. Open to all. Music from ‘Mad Uncle Harry’. More information at or on facebook at
