Galway Bay Brewery Ostara Irish Stout 5.0% ABV 330ml
The Oslo was the start of Galway Bay Brewery and remains their ﬂagship pub based in Salthill; their owners Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh added a brewery on site in 2009, making The Oslo one of the country’s ﬁrst brewpubs. Since then Galway Bay Brewery has expanded operations to 11 bars based in Galway and Dublin and has grown and re-positioned the Brewery just outside of Galway in Oranmore. They now produce four core beers along with a plethora of rotational beers that are released throughout the year.

The result has layered malts with some lovely soft chocolate notes finished with a nice hop zing to help clean the palate. Sláinte
