The White Gypsy Brewery was established in 2009, but owner Cuilán Loughnane has been involved in the Irish microbrewery industry since 1997. The brewery’s philosophy is about getting back in touch with the things that made Ireland famous for its beer but have been forgotten.
White Gypsy prides themselves on sourcing as many ingredients as possible for their beers locally – they even tried growing their own hops. White Gypsy has also sometimes brewed beer under contract for other breweries, including Metalman.
In addition to their Red Oak Ale, Belgian Blond Ale and Emerald Ale, White Gypsy also produces a German doppelbock, an American pale ale, a Belgian dubell and a Russian imperial stout. Unusually, the bottled beer comes in 750 ml bottles instead of the more common 330 ml or 500 ml.
White Gypsy beers are available to buy online at Drinkstore.ie and Bradleys Off Licence.
