Rascal's Brewing Co., in Dublin.

"When we moved home, we invested in home-brew
equipment and began brewing with all-grain and fresh
leaf hops. 2013 was a very successful year for us as
we won two competitions with our beers - Belgian Wit
and Ginger Porter. This boosted our confidence and
things developed from there," Emma explained.
Corkman Cathal added: "Our plan is to brew a variety
of seasonal ales and not focus on the core supply as
much as other breweries." They currently supply
beers to several pubs across Dublin and have plans
to go nationwide by the end of the year.
