A little bit of history
Humphrey J. Lynch was born in 1841 in Ballvourney, Co. Cork. He left for America at 15 years of age and settled in a town known as Byefield, which he later used in naming his estate Byefield house.
After working there for two years with Joseph Longfellow, cousin to the famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, he worked for a year in the ship yard at Newburyport until the American civil war broke out.
Where the magic happens
With the intention of providing our customers with greater choice and quality artisan beers, we founded the Cotton Ball Brewing Company in late 2013.
The brewery consists of a five barrel brew house, four 800 litre ale fermenters, four 800 litre conical conditioning tanks and two 800 litre bottling/kegging tanks to date. Recently added was an automated bottling line, allowing us to beautifully bottle our craft beers and distribute them across the country to off licences and shops near you.
