WE ARE ARTHURSTOWN

We are the small coastal fishing village of Arthurstown, County Wexford in the sunny South East of Ireland.

Named after Arthur Chichester of Dunbrody Park we are located on the edge of the Hook Peninsula and down river of the confluence of the “Three Sister” rivers, the Barrow, the Nore and the Suir as

they flow past into the Irish Sea at Hook Head. Surrounded by rich farmland and pastures our unique limestone soil produces bountiful harvests of wheat and barley each year.

Our small natural harbour is a safe haven for lobster and salmon fisherman. Here in Arthurstown we are of the Land and the Sea.

WE ARE OF THE LAND

WE ARE ABOUT INGREDIENTS

  • BARLEY

    We use special two row Wexford barley straight from Tosh Crosbie’s award winning farm in Arthurstown just yards from our brewery. Our two row barley is grown on the coastal limestone soil sprayed by sun and sea salt air giving it an unique flavour and texture specific to this area of Wexford.

  • HOPS

    We are currently growing our own unique type of Challenger and Cascade hops both at Tosh Crosbie’s farm and indeed on the Dunbrody estate itself.

    This is to ensure that we are able to monitor and control the natural quality of our own hops which is crucial to the speciality and uniqueness of our beers.

  • OATS

    Our oats are grown here at Arthurstown very close to our brewery on the Dunbrody estate right on the edge of the famous Hook Peninsula. Arthurstown’s pastureland is on the edge of the confluence of the famous “Three Sisters” rivers, the Barrow, the Nore and the Suir as they sweep past into the Irish Sea at Hook Head.

  • SPRING WATER

    The source of our beer is our natural spring water from our ancient well on the Dunbrody Estate.

    Known locally as the “Boiling Well” the spring water originates from pure limestone set amidst an Irish oak forest. Our pure natural spring water is the source of our inspiration for our craft beers.

  • WHEAT

    The magical coastline of County Wexford is part of Ireland’s “Sunny South East”, warmed by plenty of Spring and Summer sun. This ensures that we produce a bountiful harvest of top quality wheat almost every year. County Wexford is famed for its wheat crops and nowhere more so than the award winning farm of Tosh Crosbie and his family at Arthurstown. Tosh’s award winning farm…

  • …sows, grows and harvests high quality Wexford heritage wheat just yards from our brewery. This wheat is traditionally sand stoned milled ensuring a top quality finish deserving of such top natural produce. The closeness of Tosh Crosbie’s farm to our brewery ensures most of our vital ingredients get to our brewery within hours of being harvested and milled.
