Change is good and we are about to undergo massive change! As we embark on a €3.5m capital spend in Rye River Brewing Co. we are now once again looking for Brewing Talent to join our award-winning team at Rye River Brewing Company.

2023 promises to be our biggest year yet as we finally make the move away from our 24/7 schedule on our humble but hard-working 25H.L brewhouse to a modern 100H.L brewhouse where we will be able to operate on a reduced shift pattern. Our ambitions do not stop there, as we embark on the immediate installation of a new packaging line while adding over 15,000 Sq ft of additional warehouse space.

Rye River Brewing Company currently employs 65 people and is regarded as one of Ireland’s leading and most influential independent craft breweries. Producing over 30 beers across 5 brands, Rye River Brewing Company was been awarded the accolade of “The World’s Most Decorated Brewery” three times running at the 2020, 2021 and 2022 World Beer Awards and is Ireland’s largest retail brewery.

Introducing our latest seasonal, A-TIPA-CAL. This isn’t your typical, triple IPA. Experimenting with our friends at Yakima Chief Hops, we have ladened this TIPA with their YCH 301 Trial – Flash frozen wet hops pelletized through their Cryo Hops® process! YCH 301 Simcoe® and Citra® with a dash of Cryo Pop® Original Blend make this one ATYPICAL IPA!

Head Brewer, Bill Laukitis tells us:

“We’ve wanted to brew a TIPA for a while, but if we were gonna go for it, I wanted it to be more than just a high-ABV IPA. When I came across the YCH301 trials in my reading, my interest was sparked and I knew these were the hops for our TIPA, so I picked up the phone to our friends at Yakima Chief Hops.  We decided to go all in and started organizing frozen shipping to get these special hops in hand. The beer… well we wanted to showcase the hops, and I wanted a clean but balanced malt backbone so we focused on a simple grist and clean yeast. The mouthfeel of this brew is brought forward by the hops and the alcohol. It’s a very enjoyable beer. The fresh Simcoe and Citra are expressive on the nose, straight through to the taste. It’s a real experience of a beer and dangerously drinkable for 10.0%. It really is one A-TIPA-CAL Triple IPA!”

Our friends from Yakima Chief paid us a visit during our collab and you can check out what Bill and Katie, YCH Key Accounts Specialist, had to say about this exciting opportunity below.

We’ve had Garnet, The Herd, Embers and now it’s time to introduce our new Doppelbock aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels and the 4th release in our barrel-aged series, The Orator.

Story be told we have discussed brewing this beer for some time and once we stumbled upon the right Rye Whiskey barrels the time was nigh. Brewed in February and fermented in steel, this Rye Doppelbock was further matured and lagered in select Rye Whiskey barrels for 6 months. This double lager tells the tale of all its parts. The malty sweetness and bready toast of German Munich, Vienna and Rye Malt shine alongside the warming alcohol depths of the beer and its barrels bringing the character of cedar, apple, spice and tobacco. Enjoy with friends and let your story be told!
