Body Riddle – 4.5% – Pale Ale – Pale Ale with Lemondrop, Galaxy, Simcoe and Ekuanot hops.
Fantasm – 5.5% – Extra Pale Ale (Kolsch Yeast)
Let It Happen – 8% – DIPA – A deliciously smooth and juicy Citra DIPA. Open a can and let it happen
Here’s a little more about them as a team:
Alex Lawes – Founder, Owner, Brewer
Alan Wolfe – Founder, Partner, Facilitator
“Alex Lawes began brewing at home and over the years has accumulated some of the highest homebrew scores in Ireland for his award winning beers. Taking the step into professional brewing he released his first beers for both Brewtonic and Otterbank before helping commission Ireland’s first fully manufactured, high specification brewhouse built in over 100 years at Rye River Brewing Company where he currently works proudly as its Head Brewer. Being long talked about and long on the cards – Alex wanted to share his beers, designs and ideas in his own gypsy project that would allow him to get his beer to market. In an unusual move, his boss supported it completely, wanted to help and very much wanted to drink said beers. So the two got together to form Whiplash as its own brewing company independent of their day job with Alex making the beer and Alan getting it to your glass. Alex plans and brews the beers, designs the labels with artists and sources all the materials. Alan gets the labels printed, the bottles ordered, finds the tank space, a space on the shelf for the finished product and kicks back with the first beer off the line every time. ”
