Carlow Brewing Company, Ireland’s leading craft beer producer, has announced the acquisition of Craigies Cider, and will add the Irish craft cider brand to its own growing portfolio of brands which includes O’Hara’s Irish craft beers, and Falling Apple Irish craft cider. The sale includes Craigies cider production equipment, which will enable Carlow Brewing Company to bring all cider production in-house to its Bagenalstown-based microbrewery this year, and facilitate support of local apple growers and producers.

Seamus O’Hara, chief executive of Carlow Brewing Company, comments: “The brewery is celebrating its 21st anniversary this year, and we are delighted to start 2017 with this expansion. We value all of the hard work and effort that has gone into the Craigies brand thus far, which has resulted in it becoming one of the most popular and highest quality Irish craft ciders in the country. We intend to continue this tradition, as well as learning from the members of the Craigies team who will continue to be involved in the brand.”
