The White Hag

We are a modern independent craft brewery from Sligo, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. We brew innovative and ground breaking beers, inspired by ancient and classic styles. 

What We Do

We set out to make interesting and innovative beers, with a nod towards the ancient and classic beer styles that were common in our hinterland for generations.

While known for our award winning stout range and a stellar set of IPA’s that make up most of our core range, our sour programme is emerging as probably our point of differentiation. The Púca sour range in particular has captured the imagination of the beer consumer who wants a tart, effervescent mixed fermentation sour beer. It’s supported by our Heather Sour, Apple sour and a few other special and collaboration sours we’ve made along the way.

We also collaborate with many of our peers in the industry, and have made beers with breweries from across the world that have been truly ground breaking for us.


The White Hag are looking for a talented, creative individual with a digital communications skill set to join our growing team here in Ballymote, Sligo.

About The Team

We came together in late 2013 with the ambition of building an innovative and ambitious brewery here in Sligo. We’ve got an eclectic team, with several skillsets and backgrounds from across 2 continents combining to create The White Hag, Sligo’s first brewery in over 100 years. 

A Special Brew

We’re also home to a unique crowd funded barrel-aging programme of over 40,000 litres of specially brewed beer on oak.


We not only know how to brew great beer, we know how to celebrate with it too and we throw one hell of a party! 

Our HAGSTRAVAGANZA International Brewery Festival is quickly becoming a must attend event, with 23 taps and 90+ beers brought by breweries from all around the world!

We do not yet have a taproom and do not open for tours, but we do have occasional events that you can learn about by following out social media, here.
