Celebrate the change of seasons with our limited edition Samhain Underworld gift pack.
An ancient Celtic pagan celebration, welcoming the harvest and ushering in the dark half of the year, Samhain is today globally celebrated as Halloween. Equally Irish and uniquely original, our Underworld beers are fermented with a wild, native yeast strain, harvested from Oweynagat Cave, just down the road from the brewery in Co. Roscommon. This dark and foreboding cave is widely believed to have been the site of the first Samhain celebrations. Befitting it’s wild origins, and the place where we found it, we call our native yeast Morrigan 1 after the legendary shape-shifting warrior goddess who once inhabited the cave. Oweynagat, or Cave of the Cats, was thought to be the “Gate to Hell” or entrance to the Underworld in Irish mythology. It was from this cave that sinister beings and creatures from the “other side” emerged into our world on Samhain night.
Each Underworld beer is represented by an animal connected to the legendary Cave. The Underworld series of native Irish beers was born out of our quest for adventure, our sense of history and our respect for tradition.

- Allta “The Wolf ” (4.6% – Pale Ale, hoppy, malty, crisp) x5
