Welcome to Loudons Brewing

Loudons is an independent family-owned brewery in Glendree, Co. Clare, Ireland producing high quality beers using only natural ingredients with an emphasis on sustainability and environmentally green practices.



Loudons brewery is run by the father and son duo of Paul and Alex Loudon. Paul has a background in engineering and finance, undertakes an MSc in Brewing & Distilling for fun and has 40 years of discerning beer analysis behind his belt, while Alex has a PhD in chemistry and a love of all things beer related. Therefore, we decided that there were no better men for the job and no better job for the men - so in 2017 we finished our previous jobs, moved back to our beloved home in Glendree for the first time in 15 years, and started Loudons Brewing.

The Beer


Here at Loudons we believe that simple things done right often yield the best results. Therefore, we began by producing a single beer to the best of our abilities, Loudons Original Draught (previously Loudons Pale Ale). A lightly-hopped beer which we believe has something for everyone. Loudons Original Draught is made with a single hop variety, Cascade, giving it a refreshingly light flavour profile.  At 4.2% ABV, it's the perfect accompaniment to a long and late evening of music and frivolities.


In an ongoing commitment to local sustainability we have designed our brewery to fulfill 100% of our water requirements by harvesting the beautiful East Clare rain water from the roof of the brewery. Stored in two 15,000 litre tanks, as long as the rain doesn't stop neither will our beer.



Our beer is made with 94% pale malted barley from Loughran Family Malt, 5% malted wheat and 1% crystal malt. The malted barley comes from Loughran Family  Malt farm at the foot of the Cooley Hills in Co. Louth. Once the grain is spent making Loudons Original Draught it becomes excellent feed for the local farmers who take it away.
