Our Brands

We offer a great range of English & Irish ales, stouts and ciders on draught along with other well-known premium brands. Be sure to catch up on our special monthly promotions or our exclusive “guest beer” – to be announced at your local pub or of course right here on our website!
Guinness on tap


Is one of the most successful beer brands worldwide. Guinness originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness (1725-1803) at St. Jame's Gate, Dublin. Guinness stout is made from water, barely, roast malt extract, hops, and brewer's yeast. A portion of the barley is roasted to give Guinness its dark colour and characteristic taste.

Fuller`s London Pride on tap

Fuller`s London Pride

Fuller's London Pride is one of the UK's leading premium ales. An intrinsic part of London , London Pride has been brewed by the banks of the Thames from the very first brew. Fuller's London Pride is an award-winning classic. A rich, smooth and wonderfully balanced beer, its distinctive malty base is complemented by a well-developed hop character, from adding Target, Challenger and Northdown varieties to the brew.

Hop House 13 on tap

Hop House 13 Lager

Hop House 13 is a golden amber craft lager brewed by Guinness at the St. Jame`s Gate brewery. This double hopped lager is full flavoured, hoppy, citrusy on the nose, crisp and refreshing. 

Magners cider on tap

Magners Cider

Magners Irish Cider is Ireland's biggest purchaser od Irish apples. 17 varieties of apple are grown in the Magners' Orchards in Clonmel and are used to make the famous Magners brand. The cider is fermented in the Vat House at Dowd's Lane, between 18 degrees and 24 degrees Celsius, maturing for a few months with samples drawn off and laboratory tested for purity and alcohol content. they are then put through several filtering processes. Other ciders are pasteurised as opposed to using a filtering process, and do not ferment in oak matured vats, which adds significantly to the blend.

Our very own Piwi Red Ale on tap

Piwi`s Red Ale

  • Eye: Crystal clear, copper red
  • Nose: Fine hoppy note, caramel plays around with dried fruit.
  • Palate: Malty aroma, mild with a balanced body.
  • IBU: 20
Carlsberg on tap


With its golden colour and delicate smell of hops and malt, Carlsberg is the quintessential pilsner beer. Carlsberg is medium-bodied, dry and well-proportioned with a characteristic hop bitterness that supports its fine structure. Each ingredient in a Carlsberg is carefully selected and must live up to a strict quality code. Specially chosen hops from unpollenated female hop flowers, malt from lightly roasted spring barley, and Carslberg's famous yeast, Saccharomyces carlsbergensis, are brewed with pure water to create what is 'Probably the best beer in the world'.
