Mahon Falls Rye Pale Ale

A punchy, fruity pale ale with a rye bite.


Mahon Falls rye pale ale is all about the fresh flavour of American, Australian and English hops which are underscored by a nutty earthiness of rye malt.

March 2015 sees the third bottle release of our spring seasonal, Mahon Falls Rye Pale Ale which was first served at festivals in 2012 to high acclaim – being pronounced ‘Beer of the Festival by the brewers at Brewer’s on the Bay in Galway and at the Irish Craft Beer Festival in the RDS in Dublin the single cask brought was sold out within minutes of being tapped.

Tasting notes: Tropical fruit flavours are to the fore here with the use of Challenger, Galaxy, Summit and Ella hops to make this a punchy, fruity ale while underneath the nuttiness of the rye provides a contrasting earthiness.

Food Pairing: This full-flavoured beer works great with lighter-flavoured foods like chicken, pork and fish or even with salad dishes.

Cheese Pairing: The fruitiness of this Mahon Falls works really well with the tang of a Wensleydale or Caerphilly style cheese. Try Knockdrinna‘s Laviston or The Little Milk Company‘s Brewer’s Gold.

What’s in a name: The beer is named from the dramatic waterfall in the Comeragh Mountains where the river Mahon cascades from a mountain lake into the valley below. Perfect walking route on a fine spring day – and if you find yourself there try out the Magic Road!
