100 Jobs with New Kildare Brewing Company

Rye River Brewing Company, the biggest independent brewing company in Ireland, is to create 100 new manufacturing and management jobs plus 150 construction jobs at a new craft brewery and visitor centre in Kildare.

The expansion will be worth an extra €12.5m to the local economy per year. The new manufacturing facility will treble production of the company’s beer and cider products. The new brewery plan and visitor centre is targeted to open in late Spring 2016, subject to planning permission.

Established by Niall Phelan, Alan Wolfe and Tom Cronin in 2013 the company currently employs 54 people in Kilcock, Co Kildare. In just two years, the company has grown to produce 15 beer brands and distributes imported brands like Bavaria and San Miguel.

“Our production capability will treble to seven million litres from the current two million litres as we have outgrown our current brewery and importantly the investment will help us maintain the quality of our award winning Irish craft beers that have helped to drive our expansion abroad,” founder Niall Phelan said.
