The Irish Pub Association (IPA) has made a $5 million investment to help the Beer Hall in Dublin expand its range of beers and produce more local products.IPA managing director and chief executive Michael O’Donnell said the IPA would be responsible for the brewery’s current beer lineup.
“The IPA is now in its fourth decade of being owned by a private owner, and it is only going to get bigger,” Mr O’Connor said.
“We have invested in the brewery with a view to building a truly global brand, with a portfolio of global IPAs.”
That’s why we’re bringing on our partner to build the Innovation Hub in Dublin, where IPA products will be produced locally, and the beer we will be selling through the beer hall.
“The IPA will be in the centre of the brewery when the new development is completed in 2018.
The IPA’s new owners, Anson Brothers, bought the Irish Pub in February, following a five-year run in which it has sold more than 500,000 pints of Guinness in Ireland.”
They are making significant investments in the Beer hall and they are committed to making this the next great innovation hub in Ireland,” Mr Molan said.
He said the company would also build a new tasting room and tap room.”
In addition, we will build an all-new production facility in the beer halls adjacent to the main building, and a new production line in the adjacent parking lot,” he said.
Anson Brothers has not announced when it will start producing beer from the new facility.
The Irish Pub is in the heart of Dublin’s business district and is one of Dublin city centre’s busiest tourist attractions.
It was established in 1879 and became the first pub in Ireland to be licensed in 1921.
It has been listed on the Irish Stock Exchange since 2004.
