GREAT WESTERN GREENWAY
06) Mescan Brewery
MESCAN BREWERY TOURS: A beautiful drive along the coast brings you to Mescan Brewery sitting in the foothills of Croagh Patrick. Mescan Brewery is owned & run by former vets Bart Adons & Cillian Ó Móráin. It is named after St. Patricks personal brewer. The beers are inspired by Bart’s native Belgium, ranging from their flagship blond beer to the rich & full-bodied Red Tripel. On tours one of the brewers will show you around the brewery, telling their story of going from veterinary medicine to brewing Belgian-style beer , explaining the brewing process and guiding you through the style and flavour profiles of each of their 7 beers. Finger food and questions are encouraged and the ensuing banter is often a highlight. Allow 1 & ½ to 2 hours for your visit.
