Like Germany, Belgium and the Czech Republic, Ireland is one of the countries with a rich history of beer and a brewing tradition that goes back thousands of years. The stout comes from Ireland and is drunk in Irish pubs around the world. The Irish brewed beer long before they were called Irish and the first attempts at brewing on Irish soil date back to the Bronze Age. Coming from this beery culture, the brewers at Rye River Brewing have beer running through their veins.
Although the brewery was only founded in 2013, the brewers have already won a number of accolades and awards with their beers, including being named the World's Most Decorated Brewery for three consecutive years, Worlds Best Stout for their Rye River Export Stout and "Worlds Best IPA Imperial/Double" for their Rye River Double IPA at the coveted World Beer Awards. The Rye River Brewery currently has more than 150 awards on its shelves and the number is constantly growing. However, the team does not rest on its laurels, but sees the awards as a constant incentive to become even better. The brewers combine progressive ideas with innovative techniques, hand-picked ingredients and craftsmanship. As one of Ireland's largest independent craft breweries, Rye River Brewing Company has a responsibility: the brewery wants to lead by example and not only meet, but exceed, its own standards and goals. This ambition is reflected in the beers: the brewery's range includes a wide selection of different beers. Creative craft beers stand alongside modern interpretations of classics, seasonal specialties and natural brews. The beers contain the finest ingredients: depending on the beer style and brewing method, the brewers carefully select suitable malts and hop varieties, and even the water is adapted to the individual beers. Nothing is left to chance here in order to present beer lovers with the best possible drink.
