The Porterhouse Brew Co. have been knocking around for years and have made a significant impact on the Irish craft beer scene since the 90s. We went down to their new brewery beside the Broombridge LUAS recently, with photographer George Voronov in tow, to check out what they’ve done with the place.
It’s a fully independently-run brewery, having evolved from a 1,000 hectolitre brew pub in Temple Bar back in 1996, then outgrowing their 10,000 hectolitre brewery in Ballycoolin, to now brewing out of this amazing facility here on Dublin’s Northside.
“This new 35,000 hectolitre capacity brewery has given us more flexibility with the amount of seasonal beers we can now produce year-round while maintaining the quality, consistency and availability of our core range of lagers, stout and ales. We reached capacity at our old brewery in Ballycoolin which restricted our brewers in producing new beers in keeping up with market trends with beers such as milkshake IPA’s, session IPA’s or even barrel-aged beers. Now all of these styles are part of the Porterhouse range with a lot more exciting beers to come!
“Our priority right now is making great beers, but with the access from the new LUAS Green Line at Broombridge it will allow us to open a visitor centre, taproom and event space down the line. We are confident now with the access to the area that many more businesses will open and make this area new hub in Dublin.
“Right now, the Porterhouse Brew Co. is on the right path to where we want to be and we are very excited for what the future holds here in our new home.”
