Belfast's newest beer bar - Northern Lights on Ormeau Road

By John Mulgrew

Belfast's newest beer bar has been revealed.

Galway Bay Brewery, which runs around a dozen pubs across the Republic, is setting up a new bar called Northern Lights, on the Ormeau Road.

It's taking on the premises which once played home to bar and technology firm Brewbot.

It's due to open its doors next week.

Galway Bay is one of the Republic’s top breweries. This is its first foray outside the Republic, and into Northern Ireland.

The bar's new Twitter account tweeted on Thursday: “Good morning Belfast. We are delighted to be among you. Opening early next week with 20 taps, cask beers, food & fun.”

Galway Bay Brewery helped lead the way for the craft beer scene in Ireland, and the company produces a range of its own pale ales, stouts and India pale ales (IPA).

Some of the brewery’s top beers include Of Foam and Fury — an award-winning strong, punchy, bitter 8.5% double IPA.

Aside from its own range, the brewery’s bars across Ireland stock a large range of top beers from across the UK and Ireland, Europe, and the US.
