Rye River Brewing Company & McGargles

It’s been a BIG year for Rye River Brewing Company and McGargles! Having started on the right foot with a huge win at AllTech Craft Beer Festival in Dublin (The Dublin Craft Beer Cup for Francis Big Bangin’ IPA no less), the awards have been non-stop this year for all our beers. So far in 2016, we’ve collected 20 (yes…20) medals and are shortlisted for another eight!

Blow by blow, here’s how we’ve been taking the craft beer world by storm in 2016!
