The 5 Lamps Dublin Brewery was set up in early 2012 and our first beer The 5 Lamps Dublin Lager was launched in September 2012. Our first home was down on the North Strand by the iconic Five Lamps and hence our name.
Our goal was to offer an Irish lager which while hand crafted and produced using only natural ingredients is also accessible and easy drinking and provides a real alternative to the commercially produced international lagers available in Ireland. In the late spring of 2013 we opened our Brewery in the heart of the Liberties (in the shadow of another fairly well known Brewery!)
We have broadened our product offering now with the release of our “Liberties Pale Ale”,”Monto Red Ale” and our “Blackpitts Stout”.
Dublin had a rich tradition of drink production (both beer and spirits) which has declined over the past 150 years and it would be great if we could recapture even a small part of this lost heritage. Keep an eye out for our seasonals and one off batches which we will release over the course of the year!
William Harvey is our head brewer. William enjoyed a 26 year career with Guinness across a number of functions including but not limited to: Brewer, Technical manager for the US and Canada and Head of Procurement for brewing materials and brewing sites. William is passionate about beer and has forgotten more about beer in his lifetime than most people are likely to know.
