Founded by the O’Hara brothers, the brewery has revived a tradition that was once synonymous with the Barrow valley, the traditional heartland of the brewing industry in Ireland. Malted barley and hops were farmed extensively here, supported by the many old malting and grain mills that are still prevalent in the landscape. Records show that by the early part of the 19th Century there were five breweries in operation in Carlow. The last of these closed at the end of the 19th Century. With a dedication to quality reminiscent of the by gone brewers, the Carlow Brewing Co. has gone from strength to strength and now exports beers to a number of countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Scandinavia and Continental Europe.
