Rye River Brewing Company

McGargles beers are brewed by Rye River Brewing Company in Kildare, Ireland. Having initially started brewing in the town of Kilcock in 2013, Rye River has since moved to a larger location in Celbridge, a town steeped in brewing history. The Rye River team has also expanded, with the brewery now employing over 40 people. The brewery itself operates 24 hours a day, 5 days a week!

In recent years, we have expanded our range of beers. Daragh’s Session IPA, Dan’s Double IPA and Sean’s Export Stout have all been added and are quickly becoming some of our most popular beers! They’re also holding their own in terms of awards. At this year’s Frankfurt International Trophy all three beers were awarded Grand Gold Medals, with Sean’s Export Stout & Dan’s Double IPA both winning ‘Best Beer in Category’. Daragh’s Session IPA also won ‘Best Session IPA in the World’ at the 2017 World Beer Awards!

Brewery Tours


In 2017, we opened our brewery to the public. Our Brewery Tour allows you to witness each step of the brewing process first hand, from the milling of the malt to the bottling of some of your favourite beers. After which, you will get the chance to sample some of our multi-award-winning brews in a brand-new visitor experience area directly overlooking the brewery.
