Overview
More
Our brewery’s roots are deeply embedded in the hilly fields and farms of northeast Donegal. This is the perfect environment for the way we make beer. We don’t filter or pasteurise, and we let our industrious little friends, the yeast, carbonate the beer naturally during fermentation. With the opening of K2, our new state-of-the-art facility in nearby Letterkenny in March 2017, the clinking of bottles coming off our line no longer mingles with the bleating of sheep from the surrounding fields. The farmhouse ethos at the core of what we do however remains the same. We pair brewing tradition with a contemporary sense of adventure to produce clean, crisp full-flavoured beers.

Your constructive criticism is greatly appreciated and you've raised a topical issue! Licensing laws currently prohibit us from serving beer at the brewery. Our Taproom at Rathmullan House is a neat solution to this frustrating dilemma but we're edging towards wetting guests whistles on site....More
