Farmhouse beers from Donegal

Do otters like beer?

The simple answer is, we don’t ever intend to find out! The otters are part of Lough Swilly’s rich natural habitat and we prefer to look at them rather than count them as consumers of our waste water.

Our waste water management is receiving special attention as befits a brewing facility in a beautiful rural setting. As part of the planning process we spent a lot of time designing a multi-stage, multi-tank waste water treatment system. It ensures that whatever water leaves the brewery can safely re-enter the natural environment without any negative impact on the otters or their neighbours. To cut down on water usage we’ll also be capturing rainwater for certain uses such as steam generation and grey water.

With action on two fronts, progress over the last ten days has been rapid. Things are really taking shape.
