Craft brewers are generally small, independent breweries which add a ‘twist’ to traditional recipes to create something authentic, unique and quirkier. At The Waterfront Inn, we supply a wide range of craft beers and craft ale which will open you up to something different and provide a pleasant alternative to your usual pint.
Among our craft selection, we have several bottled craft beers, and craft on draught to tempt you.
Take a look at our range of craft beers and try something new on your next visit.
Bottled Craft Beers
When the first regular breweries were founded in the Middle Ages, beer filtration was not a common technology and few mastered it. Among these few were the Fathers of Grimbergen Abbey, who became renowned experts in craft brewing. Their masterpiece was the filtrated Grimbergen Blonde – a pure, smooth, blonde ale with ripe fruit flavours and no cloudiness – that stood out from other beers of the time. Today, it’s still an insider tip among beer connoisseurs around the world.
Hop House 13
HOP HOUSE 13 is a delicious double-hopped lager, brewed with Irish barley and aromatic hops and continues Guinness’s 256 years of heritage and brewing excellence at St. James’s Gate, Dublin. It’s a crisp and full-flavoured lager with subtle malty notes and fresh hop aromas with hints of Apricot and Peach. If you like to try new and interesting lagers, then Hop House 13 offers more character, flavour and taste.
Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.
Brewdog 5am Saint
Out of this order and stability comes the rush of the pack. Berry and caramel riding alongside marmalade and chocolate. Spice and toast jostle with lychee and biscuit.
The needle flicks to all points of the compass. It drives you towards the horizon, towards the vanishing point. And it keeps going…
Brewdog Dead Pony Club
Dead Pony is the invigorating surf that pounds the iridescent shoreline yards from the salt-encrusted asphalt of Route 1. The hop-heavy west-coast wonderland awaits.
Dive in and the toasted malt base soon yields to a huge box-fresh hop hit, washing tropical fruit, floral garlands and spicy undertones all over your palate.
Inspired by US-Style pale ales, Dead Pony is a low amplitude, high voltage hop hit; California dreaming for the craft beer generation.
