The McGargle’s Story

The Irish town of Celbridge is famous for its long and thriving tradition of brewing dating back to the early 1700s. The town consisted of large estates which provided the main source of employment for Celbridge and within each of these self-supporting estates was their very own brewery! In 1709 James Carberry’s Brewery, the brewery in which some of this country’s world renowned brewers began their trade, was established in the town centre.

A town steeped in history and with a long association with brewing is the ideal place to brew fantastic beers, and to write our own brewing history – in the case, the story of the dysfunctional first family of Irish brewing, the McGargles.*

McGargles Family Portrait

You can’t choose your family but you can choose your beer!

Granny Mary’s Red Ale

Mary’s Red Ale is an aromatic, malt driven Irish Red Ale focusing bringing through Vienna, Munich and aromatic caramel malts. The result is an enveloping malt aroma of biscuits, roast, caramel and a hint of cranberries. Traditional Fuggles hops provide an earthy bitter hop balance.

Knock Knock Ned’s IPA

Knock Knock Ned’s IPA is a malt-forward traditional style English IPA – more balanced, round caramelised malt, floral hop character and big mouthfeel all tied together with the addition of English and American Hops.

Francis’ Big Bangin’ IPA

Francis’ IPA is a modern take on the US IPA style, using only floor malted Maris Otter barley and hopped to hell with tropical aromatic varieties like Mosaic and Simcoe. Keeping it simple, clean, big and bangin.

Fancy Frank Lager

Fancy Frank’s Lager is a German Style Helles – A light but more complex pale lager that’s cared for over time. Produced with German pilsner malt, floral saaz hops, our house lager yeast, undergoing extended cold maturation – this bready and soft lager ties together the grace and clarity.

Cousin Rosie’s Pale Ale

Cousin Rosie’s Pale Ale balances bitter citrus hop character with a soft malt body pushing through the aroma of grapefruit, orange peel and pine. All this is backed up with a light body of biscuit, bread and toasted malts.

Toothless Dec’s Brown Ale

Toothless Dec’s is an English style brown ale. Brewed using Brown malt and Fuggles hops, Dec’s is a chewy malt driven beer. He’s worryingly sessionable and amazing with food.

Uncle Jim’s Stout

Jim’s stout is a traditional Dry Irish Stout pushing forward round and silky coffee, chocolate and toffee malt aroma and body. Its bitterness is delicate and balance a fine art. Finishes dry, as a Dry Irish Stout should.

Trader Tommy’s Apple Cider

A secret recipe of incredible quality using apples with a delightfully fruity apple aroma and complimented with a sweet, well-balanced finish.

Trader Tommy’s Wild Berry Cider

This Cider has a rich aromatic taste originating from a cluster of wild berries, with a typical fruity flavour, and with a sweet, well-balanced finish.
