"Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery and Brew Pub is one of Ireland’s longest established and best respected craft breweries. The “Well” has gained national fame for its popular beers along with international recognition for its numerous craft beer awards from across Europe along with their successful collaboration with Jameson Whiskey.
The brewery was founded on the North Mall in Cork City and is built on the site of an old Franciscan monastery and well dating back to the year 1219. Legend has it that water from the well had miraculous and curative properties, and people would come from afar to drink from it. When you first walk through the modest entrance of the Franciscan Well Brewery and Brew Pub you are struck by the passion of its brewers. This love for the well and its beer is infectious and emanates from all the staff. You quickly discover that the diverse and interesting clientele are also devotees in the strongest sense.
The Brewery has combined modern technology with age old tradition, brewing classic beer styles including lager, ale, stout, and wheat beer. Putting innovation at the forefront of the brewing process. Seasonal and special brews that pass the brewer’s standards are served up at the Brew Pub. The most popular ones are then sent further afield.
Franciscan Well is also opening a new facility in early 2016 on the other side of the River Lee. This is to meet the growing demand of Franciscan Well products, while allowing the brewers to maintain the creative micro-brewery to create new ideas and products – continuing to allow the patrons of the Brew Pub to give them their initial feedback and input to the creative process."
