With the intention of providing our customers with greater choice and quality artisan beers we founded the Cotton Ball Brewing Company in late 2013. The brewery consists of a five barrel brew house, four 800 litre ale fermenters, four 800 litre conical conditioning tanks and two 800 litre bottling/kegging tanks to date. Recently added was an automated bottling line, allowing us to beautifully bottle our craft beers and distribute them across the country to off licences and shops near you.

Founded in late 2012 by Phil and Sue Cullen, Mountain Man Brewing was West Cork’s first entry to the Irish craft beer scene. Phil subsequently learned to brew from a master brewer while living in Canada in the late 1990’s and continued to fine tune his brewing skills over the following years, obtaining a General Certificate in Brewing. It was over this time that Phil developed the recipes for the beers you enjoy today as Green Bullet Pale Ale, Hairy Goat IPA, Sneaky Owl Dark Ale and Banjo’d Appalachian IPA.
