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.

Our two latest limited editions are releasing into the wild today.  Locavore Summer 2022, a Foraged Elderflower Saison that champions the flavour of Wicklow's native Irish hedgerows.  Heff Bezos, a Hopfenweisse bursting with tropical fruit flavours. This is a hoppy wheat beer that is a modern twist on the classic hefeweizen beer style.  Find them in all good independent off licences and at the @wicklowwolftaproom  #IndependentByNature #Locavore #EndangeredSpecies
Introducing Locavore Summer 2022, a foraged Elderflower Saison brewed with wild elderflower hand-picked from our hop farm and our very own malted barley and wheat.  Expect Locavore Summer 2022 to be packed with herbal, floral notes, a hint of spiced banana and a light crisp body.  Releasing into the wild next week.  #IndependentByNature
No. 30 in our Endangered Species series, Heff Bezos is another example of our brewer’s passion and creativity running wild. A modern twist on the classic hefeweizen beer style, Heff Bezos is a hop forward wheat beer.  A style of beer that we have planned to brew for quite some time now, this Hopfenweisse is brewed with modern hops (Citra, Idaho 7 & Talus) and fermented using a hefeweizen yeast strain from our friends at @whc_lab.  #IndependentByNature

West Side Story is a celebration of the influence that the West Coast of America and the infamous beer style 'West Coast IPA' had on Wicklow Wolf. It was after Quincey and Simon each spent a number of years living in California that the seed for Wicklow Wolf was planted. On their return to Ireland and searching for the beer style that made them fall in love with craft beer that they decided to open a brewery of their own, brewing beer for them and their friends.  8 years on since we brewed our first IPA on a small pilot kit in Bray, the journey has led us to explore many different beers and styles but the West Coast IPA remains one of our favourites. This is a modern twist on the beer that helped inspire the Wicklow Wolf journey.  #IndependentByNature

Overseen by the watchful eye of Simon, our bee hives are one of many areas of the hop farm that is thriving. We are constantly looking at ways to increase the biodiversity at the hop farm, it is chemical free, full of lush native hedgerows and plenty of flora for the bees to feast on.  The hop farm is an important part of Wicklow Wolf and our mission to brew exceptional beer in a sustainable way.  #IndependentByNature
Summer is here.  The perfect Summer beer, 'You Can't Handle the Fruit' is jam packed with  a cornucopia of apricot, blood orange, passion fruit and pineapple. A refreshing, thirst quenching sour that leaves you want more after each sip.  Releasing into the wild this week in limited quantities.  #IndependentByNature #EndangeredSpecies
A modern West Coast IPA, West Side Story is fermented with a Kveik yeast strain called Hornindal. This Hornindal yeast strain gives the beer an intense tangerine aroma. These esters combined with the Idaho 7, Strata & Talus hops create a depth of flavour in a style that is typically hop dominant. Expect citrus, grapefruit and pine flavours with soft stone fruit undertones. On the palate, this modern West Coast Kveik IPA is clean with a refreshing bitterness and resinous finish.  Releasing into the wild next week in limited quantities. Available in @wicklowwolftaproom this weekend.  #EndangeredSpecies #IndependentByNature
Introducing Endangered Species no. 29, West Side Story. A modern take on the classic West Coast IPA, West Side Story was heavily dry hopped with new age hops: Strata, Idaho 7 & Talus and fermented with the Kveik yeast strain, Hornindal.  Releasing into the Wild next week.  #IndependentByNature
Introducing Endangered Species no. 28, You Can’t Handle The Fruit. A tropical sour brewed with a cornucopia of apricot, blood orange, passion fruit and pineapple.  A burst of tropical fruit hits you on the nose before the first lip-smacking sip. An extremely juice forward beer complimented by a tart, sour finish, ‘You Can’t Handle The Fruit’ is the perfect refreshing Summer beer. Enjoy cold, in the sun and with friends.  #IndependentByNature
