Mescan Brewery is named after Mescan the monk who was St. Patrick’s friend and personal brewer. It is situated on the slopes of Croagh Patrick and is owned and operated by Bart Adons and Cillian Ó Móráin, two Westport vets who have been friends and colleagues for nearly 20 years. The pair spent four years perfecting their original recipes inspired by the beers of Belgium, Bart’s homeland, before starting to brew commercially in 2013.
WESTPORT BLOND BEER 4.8%
Golden ale with pear and floral notes and restrained hop bitterness to perfectly balance the malt flavours. Crisp, clean on the palate and flavoursome.
Serving Temp 4 – 6 °C.
WESTPORT RED TRIPEL 8%
Complex, full-bodied, warming, malty and fruity with additional nutty and caramel flavours. A beer to sip and savour. This is our take on the strong beers pioneered by the Belgian Trappist monastery-breweries. Tripels are strong, complex beers and are traditionally golden in colour. We decided to make ours red and the malts used to achieve this add even more complexity to the flavours on the palate.
Serving Temp 7 – 10 °C.
SPECIAL RESERVE 8.6%
A robust dark beer, with strong caramel aromas, maltiness and sun-dried fruits on the palate. Dry with a pleasantly bitter finish.
Serving Temp 8 – 10 °C.
