The Rye River Brewing Company was established in November 2013.
And so the story of the Rye River Brewing Company began. The McGargles were born, and the team started to build.
Just a few years on and the brewery employs over 40 people producing a range of over twenty beers including ten McGargles beers.
A Heritage of Brewing
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 this case, the story of the dysfunctional first family of Irish brewing, the McGargles.
