McGargles-Family-Portrait

Caitriona recently caught up with Alan Wolfe, one of the 6 founding fathers of the Rye River Brewing Company. Their most well-known brand is McGargles, but as Alan explains, Rye River is more than just your average craft beer brand.

It’s a great interview as Alan has brilliant passion for his way of life, and doesn’t hold the punches when he talks about commercially made beers in Ireland. For an insight into one of the most modern and progressive craft beer firms in Ireland today, do tune in!

Many thanks to Love Irish Food for facilitating this interview.
