McCrackens Ale Family
We established our County Armagh based brewery in September 2018. It started with our founder Ryan McCracken, 2 beers and a dream. We’ve since gone on to win awards and expanded our team, brewery and range to 7 outstanding beers.
At McCrackens Real Ale we believe in using natural fresh ingredients. We source many of the ingredients locally to maintain the highest quality standards and to ensure we contribute to our local economy.
Using just four ingredients (water, barley, yeast and hops) and only brewing in small batches produces quality full bodied ales. As our ales are all unfiltered, bottle conditioned and do not contain any artificial preservatives or other chemicals, the natural goodness and full flavours are all kept intact.
