Ireland Craft Beers


Independent Brewing

Carraroe, Co. Galway

Independent Brewing is based in Carraroe, in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht. Trading since January 2014, the brewery has already established itself as an artisan producer of award winning, tasty beers. They were awarded a Silver medal at the Global Craft Brewers Awards in Berlin and won the best Ale and Lager category at the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards.

Carraroe is a small village nestled on the rugged Atlantic coastline of the West of Ireland, with a backdrop of “savage beauty” of stony fields, small lakes and windswept bogs. Much like Connemara itself, our beer is local and artisan as opposed to the mass produced offerings of global companies.

Just a mile from our microbrewery is the Coral Strand or Trá an Dóilín. This beautiful beach is made of tiny pieces of maerl, which is very coral-like in appearance. This unique local feature provided the inspiration for our artwork. Like the Coral Strand, our beers are a natural product with no added chemicals or additives. We use only the best ingredients in our award-winning and full-flavoured craft beers. They are carefully handcrafted and brewed for your enjoyment.
