A bit of history about Ireland's long history of Brewing. By beginning of the nineteenth century there were over two hundred breweries in the country, fifty-five of them in Dublin. During the nineteenth century the number of breweries fell to about fifty, and today only about 12.
From it's golden history Ireland produced ale, without the use of hops as these are not native to Ireland. Even in the late 18th century hops were not used, when almost all other countries had adopted the use of them as an ingredient to preserve and flavour their beer. The Irish keep the history up to date with unique types that are featured in our St. Patrick's Day Gift Boxes.
