Hand-Crafted in Northern Ireland

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 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.

The Process

Using just four ingredients (water, barley, yeast and hops) and only brewing in small batches produces quality full bodied ales. As our beers are all unfiltered, naturally conditioned and do not contain any artificial preservatives or other chemicals, the natural goodness and full flavours are all kept intact.

5.6% abv –Taking influences from America‘s West Coast IPA and the classic India Pale Ale and combining those with local Irish ingredients, know how and some Irish charm thrown into the mix.  

McCracken’s Irish Pale Ale combines Citra and Chinook hops gives this Ale hoppy character with zesty bite.

5% abv –To get its character red hue and caramel undertones, a special blend of malt is used along with just the right amount of Willamette and Northern Brewer hops to create an ale that is both easy to drink and refreshing.

4.8% abv – Using a specially selected blend of Irish malts with just a hint of caramel malt giving it added flavour. Including a mix of Citra, Cascade and Chinook hops make this Golden Pale Ale both refreshing and flavoursome.

5% abv – McCrackens Chocolate & Vanilla Irish Stout, combines the finest Cacao & Vanilla beans from Madagascar with a special blend of kilned malts to create a traditional Irish Stout with a twist. 


6.5% abv – Double IPA that is bursting full of Citra and Chinook hops. Combining this with a carefully balanced mix of malt makes this ale hoppy, zesty and full of flavour. 

4.5% abv – An American Pale Ale both refreshing and versatile enough for any occasion. 

Complex character, with notes of tropical grapefruit and pine.
