There were 2 official launches one at the  brewery in the grounds of the Dunbrody House Estate and one in the Taphouse in Ranelagh, Dublin.

The brewery which has a sizeable capacity of 10,000 litres per week is a collaboration between local farmer Tosh Crosby and local business man Eamon Murphy along with marketer Niamh Ní Dhónaill.

Commenting on the launch, Dundon said: 

“ Our Beer is all about a fusion of  natural ingredients and  crafted production. We are blessed here in Arthurstown, Co Wexford to be able to grow award winning , wheat ,oats and barley that is infused by the sea salt air.

"Our director and farmer Tosh Crosby is able to provide us with natural world class produce all within less than a kilometre from our brewery. This along with our natural sweet water from our ancient well on the Dunbrody estate ensures we have ingredients that are the envy of the world.

"These ingredients fused with the expertise of local Brew Master Kieran Bird and myself helps create those magical crafted beer tastes”.

Already supplying SuperValu  and Centra with the exclusive Kings Bay range of Irish Pale Ale and Irish Red Ale, the brewery launched another range of Dunbrody Red and Dunbrody Pale for general launch in the on and off trade.

“We would like to thank SuperValu and Centra for their help and assistance in getting our wonderful range of exclusive Kings Bay ales onto the market and we already have reorders which is truly exciting, we are now looking forward to getting our new Dunbrody range out through the Vanguard network  and other distributors.”

“I have always been passionate about  the importance of  great ingredients in food and  great ingredients in beer is just as important.

"We are currently employing 5 people in this new venture and hope to create 5 more jobs by the end of 2016 as we expand our markets into the UK and North America. We would also like to thank the Wexford Enterprise Board, Bord Bia and AIB for their continued support.
