Brewery Notes

It was 2013, the middle of a recession and money was hard to come by.

What better time to set about opening a craft brewery.

Twin brothers Padraig and Adrian Hyde decided to take the plunge and follow their hearts on brewing beer that is pure and brewed the way nature intended.

“It was scary as hell. We were plumbers, builders, welders, accountants, customs and excise experts, brewers and sales people at all hours of the day. You’d roll in the door for dinner at six, be back in the brewery for seven and hit the bed at three in the morning only to repeat it all over again. Scary, but we had good fun.” – Adrian

“We’d have finished building that brewery in half the time except for Adrian.” – Padraig.

We launched in 2014 and everything we made, we pumped back into the brewery. What money we had, banks had even less – they were just about kaput themselves with the property crash and just weren’t lending. But we didn’t care. Looking back now, we don’t know how we did it other than to just keep going. Every cent went back into buying more tanks, pipes, pumps, better testing equipment – it really was a time of just going for it no matter what, a philosophy that continues even today. We had a vision and it was a case of either make it happen or it can break us trying. Growth was organic, word of mouth type stuff. We didn’t have large budgets for fancy marketing and branded vans and glasses remained a dream so it really was exciting to realise that we’d soon outgrow our home such was the demand.
