The McGargle’s Story
The Irish town of Celbridge is famous for its long and thriving tradition of brewing dating back to the early 1700s. The town consisted of large estates which provided the main source of employment for Celbridge and within each of these self-supporting estates was their very own brewery! In 1709 James Carberry’s Brewery, the brewery in which some of this country’s world renowned brewers began their trade, was established in the town centre.
A town steeped in history and with a long association with brewing is the ideal place to brew fantastic beers, and to write our own brewing history – in the case, the story of the dysfunctional first family of Irish brewing, the McGargles.*

Granny Mary’s Red Ale
As fiery and strong as her malt-driven Red Ale. A balanced Irish Red that’s winning over customers. Brewed with earthy Fuggles Hops and a combination Vienna and Cara Munich Malt. It has a deep colour and rich aromatic flavour.
Knock Knock Ned’s IPA
An IPA with a perfect balance of sweetness and bitter hops. With initial tones of citrus like fruit followed with a caramelised pallet this IPA is considered strong and hoppy. Ned’s IPA is however balanced with three types of specialty malts. Rich hops, Cascade, Target and Hallertau give this IPA a distinct and unique flavour.
Francis’ Big Bangin’ IPA
A full on West Coast style IPA that comes bangin’ down your door with a trio of Columbus, Mosaic and Simcoe hops which give it a tropical balanced flavour with a lingering aftertaste.
Fancy Frank Lager
A clean, full flavoured and somewhat fruity lager. With a slightly floral aroma, the initial taste of a clean, crisp lager follows with a hoppy, slightly smoky after taste from the Saaz hops that have been late hopped in the brew house.
Cousin Rosie’s Pale Ale
Perfectly balances bitter citrus fruit notes with a caramelised palate. The hop aroma gives an strong tropical fruit sensation of pink grapefruit, mango and citrus from the Chinook and Summit hops used to dry hop the beer. The aroma is well balanced by the taste as the hop character follows through in the taste giving it a well-rounded finish. A perfectly balanced Pale Ale.
Uncle Jim’s Stout
A smooth, well rounded stout. The aroma gives off a subtle coffee and chocolate nose which balance perfectly. The flavour of chocolate carries into the taste and balances impeccably with the bitterness from the Herkules hops!
Trader Tommy’s Apple Cider
A secret recipe of incredible quality using apples with a delightfully fruity apple aroma and complimented with a sweet, well-balanced finish.
Trader Tommy’s Wild Berry Cider
This Cider has a rich aromatic taste originating from a cluster of wild berries, with a typical fruity flavour, and with a sweet, well-balanced finish.
