The story behind our beers
In the summer of 1798, the United Irishmen stood up to a political system rooted in sectarian privilege, and fought to replace it with a secular democracy founded on universal equality and justice. The uprising was crushed with great brutality and bloodshed.
Three Kinnitty men, Johnny Daly, Jimmy Scully and Tom Curley were captured and tied by Thomas Bernard of Kinnitty Castle. From horseback, he flogged the men, protecting power and privilege through blood punishment.
Our beers commemorate these men and the seeds of rebellion sown by all who stood in 1798.
