Like most great ideas, Trouble Brewing was formed by three friends over a couple of beers when they decided that too many pubs had too little choice. Kildare based founders Thomas Prior, Stephen Clinch and Paul O Connor began brewing in March 2010, launching with a single beer, the Deception Golden Ale (then known as Ór). November that same year brought about the release of their second brew, the decadent Dark Arts Porter. Fast track ten years and these are still two staples of the brewery and can be found in bars the length and breadth of the country. They now produce a wealth of different brews including limited edition seasonal beers and are ever dedicated to producing distinctive and outstanding beer from only natural ingredients.
