Independent By Nature

At Wicklow Wolf, our mission is to brew exceptional beers without compromise and with true passion. Independently brewed for independent minds. We are locally rooted and at one with nature, brewing beers in a sustainable way.

In 2022 we at Wicklow Wolf have taken our commitment to sustainability one step further, we have commissioned the installation of over 120Kw of solar panels, covering the entirety of our 17,000 sq ft brewery roof. To find out more, follow the link below!

A juicy DIPA with a burst of tropical fruit flavours and aromas of melon, grapefruit, papaya, mango and passion fruit.  Decipher was brewed with a grain bill of pale malt, wheat and oats with Cascade hops also added into the Mash, followed by Idaho 7 and Eureka! being added into the whirlpool.  These hop additions in the mash were in done in order to build up thiols (aroma & flavour compounds found in hops) that would be ‘unlocked’ by WHC's innovative yeast strain Hop Unlock during fermentation that previously would have been inaccessible.  These unlocked flavour compounds help to give us an even fruiter IPA. The beer also received a very generous dry hop of Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic.  #IndependentByNature
Introducing our two new Endangered Species: 
Toto Sorachi, an Italian Pils inspired by Quincey’s time travelling with the Irish team during Italia ’90 and named after the infamous Italian that broke a nation’s hearts, Toto Schillaci. 
Decipher, a highly innovative Tropical DIPA that is one of the first beers brewed using WHC’s latest innovative yeast strain, ‘Hop Unlock’, a yeast developed to help unlock flavour and aroma compounds in hops. 
Both releasing into the wild next week.  #IndependentByNature
