The story of the Rye River Brewing Company began back in 2013 with the introduction of the McGargles brand. We have grown both our team and our product range since then. Based in Celbridge, Kildare the brewery employs over 40 people. We now produce a range of over twenty beers under the Solas, Crafty Brewing Company, Grafters and McGargles brands
In 2017, we opened our brewery to the public. Our Brewery Tour allows you to witness each step of the brewing process first hand, from the milling of the malt to the bottling of some of your favourite beers. After which, you will get the chance to sample some of our multi-award winning brews in a brand new visitor experience area directly overlooking the brewery.
We’ve recently launched our own brand of Limited Edition Rye River Seasonal Beers. The first of which, our 8.2% Belgian Imperial Stout, was showcased at this years Alltech Craft Brews & Food Fair.
