Established in 2009, Galway Bay Brewery was Galway’s first microbrewery and is the latest business venture from Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh, the Galway natives behind The Cottage, The Oslo and The Salthouse.
Situated in the Oslo pub in Salthill village, but an on-premises building at the back of the pub allows for expansion and Galway Bay Brewery will be developing to include brewery tours and talks on the craft of brewing with the brewer himself.
The brewery currently produces Bay Ale, an Irish red ale; Stormy Port, a porter; Buried at Sea, a chocolate milk stout; Full Sail, a dry-hopped IPA; and Of Foam and Fury, a double IPA. Limited edition rotational brews are offered too. The beer is available in their Galway and Dublin pubs (The Oslo, The Cottage, The Salthouse and The Scholar’s Rest in Galway; and Against the Grain, The Black Sheep, The Brew Dock and The Dark Horse in Dublin) and is also now available in 500ml bottles in good off-licenses across Ireland.
