Brewery Information

Galway Bay Brewery, founded in 2009 by Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh, has grown from a small venture into a prominent name in the Irish craft beer scene. Located in Oranmore, just outside Galway City, the brewery has expanded to operate 11 bars across Galway and Dublin. Known for pushing the boundaries of flavour and technique, Galway Bay Brewery offers an array of rotational beers along with their four core beers.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Pours a deep, inviting ebony with a creamy tan head that lingers, promising a rich drinking experience.

Aroma: The nose is greeted with an enticing mix of roasted malts and soft chocolate, creating an alluringly sweet and earthy profile.

Flavour: Each sip unveils a complexity of malts, featuring subtle chocolate sweetness balanced by a light hoppy bitterness. This makes Ostara both rich and drinkable, with tricks taken from the imperial stout playbook but at a much lower ABV.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture that complements its dry finish. Ostara leaves a satisfyingly clean palate that beckons for another sip.

Food Pairings

Ostara Irish Stout pairs wonderfully with a variety of foods, enhancing your dining experience. Consider pairing it with:

  • BBQ Meats: The roasted malt and chocolate notes complement the smoky, rich flavours of BBQ dishes.
  • Strong Cheeses: The stout’s complexity balances well with the robust flavours of mature cheddar or blue cheese.
  • Desserts: Try it with chocolate-based desserts or drop a scoop of French vanilla ice cream into the stout for a delightful beer float​.

Serving and Cocktail Suggestions

Serving Suggestions:

  • Perfect Pint: Serve Ostara Irish Stout slightly chilled at around 8-10°C (46-50°F) to fully appreciate its complex flavours and aromas.
  • Beer Float: For a unique dessert, pour Ostara over a scoop of French vanilla ice cream. The stout’s chocolate notes blend beautifully with the creamy vanilla, creating a rich, indulgent treat.

Cocktail Ideas:

  • Black Velvet: Combine equal parts Ostara Irish Stout and champagne for a sophisticated and refreshing cocktail. The stout’s robust flavours contrast nicely with the light, bubbly champagne.
  • Stout Irish Coffee: Mix a shot of Irish whiskey, a teaspoon of brown sugar, and a fresh shot of espresso with Ostara Irish Stout. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for a warm, comforting cocktail that’s perfect for cool evenings.
