The Strangford Lough Brewing Company

Strangford Lough Brewery

After an American court case which the company lost, the website is no longer registered and the brewery closed.

SBLC launched their two Viking beers, Barelegs Brew and Legbiter at the Killyleagh Viking Boat Festival. The beers, bottle conditioned, had been contract brewed (reportedly by the Hampshire Brewery) with an eye to the American market. The Company engaged in talks with an existing USA importer/wholesaler but legal action occured over products supposedly deemed to be "Irish" but came from the continent. Internet searches will bring up the relevant details.

St. PATRICK's had been in the US and in the UK/ROI.
