About Us


Rascals Brewing Co. is independently owned by craft beer loving couple Emma Devlin and Cathal O’Donoghue. Our craft beer obsession began in 2009 while living in Wellington, the craft beer capital of New Zealand. The obsession quickly progressed to home brewing and since moving back to Ireland we have had many successes with our brews. After winning 2 brewing competitions in 2013 we made the BOLD decision to go commercial and invested our life-savings in a 950L brewery based in Rathcoole, Co. Dublin.

Rascals Brewing Co. are proud to create BOLD IRISH BEER. This is more than just a catchphrase, it’s the philosophy behind what we brew, how we think, and what we believe. Our beers are slightly off-centered, we like to brew popular beer styles but with the Rascals twist.

We bring you beers that will speak to you directly, inform and educate you about what you are drinking and hopefully ​make you smile in the process. Rascals Brewing Co. beers are for everyone, so go ahead and beer yourself with Rascals.

The citrus follows through in the flavour along with subtle spice from the Belgian yeast. The wheat malt gives the beer a soft body and the mouthfeel is light with a crisp and refreshing finish.
