GRAB LIFE BY THE MONT
Enduring character & endearing taste are our true north. Independence & provenance are in our nature. Refreshment & reward is our why.
“We’re on a mission as Ireland’s finest Pilsner lager beer. No gimmicks, notions, or compromises; just the pursuit of excellence”. - Michael Cowan, Founder.
Ever since we launched Mont Beer in 2015, we’ve constantly challenged ourselves to set the highest standards in brewing excellence; from the best quality barley, hops, and water, to the attention to detail we put into every pint or bottle of our award-winning beer.
In 2017, our ‘quality, excellent interpretation of a classic Czech-style pilsner lager, and our unique super-premium branding’, were all recognised in winning two prestigious World Beer Awards in London.
Having been acclaimed as ‘Ireland’s finest Pilsner’, we’re focused on rewarding ‘one million moments of Mont’ with Ireland’s super-premium lager, Mont®.
Located on the Sallygap Road, within the grounds of Kilbride Manor, the Mont Brewery is famed as Ireland's highest brewery at the gateway to the Wicklow Mountains National Park. A mere stone’s throw from the mountain source of the famous River Liffey, our golden lagers and cold brew coffees are brewed using pristine Irish mountain water from our own artesian well, naturally filtered by granite & peat over thousands of years.
Wicklow Mountains National Park
Our original Irish Pilsner is naturally-brewed, perfectly balanced, and with small-batch quality.
Finest quality Bohemian Pilsner and Vienna malts, sustainably grown in the EU.
Triple-hopped using Saaz, Tradition, and Cascade, for that distinctive Mont® character.
Pure, Irish spring water. We’re famous of it. Perfect softness for bottom-fermenting lager.
The magic can’t happen without it, so we only use a special strain of yeast.
Being a 100% independent microbrewery that maintains its quality, consistency, and integrity, is very important to us. So, whilst we upgrade our own Mont Brewery into a state-of-the-art boutique brewery & taproom at Kilbride Manor, our friends at Boyne Brewhouse in the Boyne Valley are temporariliy brewing Mont® Irish Pilsner under contract for us, with their impressive Kaspar-Schulz brewhouse system.
The Mont brewing team are still involved in every batch, and with our original brewer Richard Hamilton now head brewer at Boyne, our quality, consistency, and integrity is still in great hands!
