Höchstadt an der Aisch

Caroline in Keller20160425 101010BlauerLowe

West Mayo Brewery were delighted to be invited to Höchstadt an der Aisch in April 2016 to participate in their celebration of the 25th anniversary of their Beer Keller Club on the Beer Day of Saturday April 23rd which was the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Beer Purity Law called Reinheitsgebot.

Höchstadt an der Aisch is in Franconia, the northern part of the Bavarian/Bayern province where they have a proud brewing tradition and the greatest density (and quality!) of breweries probably in the world. The welcome we recieved was wonderful and we were very grateful to be so well looked after and to see all the interesting sights and learn all the local beer styles.

We have a photo album on our Facebook page that you can see here!

The brew will be of Clew Bay Sunset, which was also the beer we made on our first brew just over two and a half year's ago - and in about 3 weeks time, you may be sampling it! Sláinte!

To Russia With Beer

We are delighted to say that Oilean Eadaigh West Mayo Brewery beer will shortly be on sale in Hamiltons Bar in Belgorod. So bog myrtle from near our lake on Hilltop Farm in West Mayo will soon be enjoyed in our Paddy's Pilgrims Porter in Russia! Our other beers will also be on sale in Hamiltons and the Russian barstaff are ready with their t-shirts and Mayo flags.

The set of photographs show the route taken - bog myrtle near the lake, Konstantin and Nataly from Hamiltons inspecting the product at our brewery, the van loaded with one-trip kegs and ready to go. And finally, Hamiltons getting ready for the beers. Enjoy folks!

Grainne Uaile Atlantic Ale

Atlantic Ale beer lensWe are delighted to announce our new special beer, GAA or Gráinne Úaile Atlantic Ale which went down very well at the Pirate Queen festival in Westport House!

It is periodically on sale in a couple of venues in Westport until we run out - the latest brew in McGing's Bar on High Street and Cobbler's Bar at the Octagon - but please check Out the Drink Our Draught Page for an up to date list of local suppliers.

Gráinne Úaile was the Pirate Queen of 16th century here in County Mayo and she once had an audience with Queen Elizabeth I such was her renoun. Rumour has it she never went anywhere without a pint of the Atlantic Ale to see her on her way (a rumour we may have started!)


GAA is an all grain brown ale with robust Atlantic flavours perfect for stormy Atlantic weather throughout the year.

This current batch is 4.4% ABV and includes honey from Westport! Sláinte!

Full ingredients: Water, Malted Barley, Honey, Hops, Yeast
