Farmhouse beers from Donegal


Eamonn Collecting the Spent Grain_1979

In 2013 Kinnegar expanded from its miniature birthplace into a purpose-built 10HL facility tucked cleverly into the existing farmhouse environment where Libby and Rachel grew up and where they still keep their horses (and parents!) today. In Spring 2017, the brewery will begin its move to K2, a state of the art facility in nearby Letterkenny.

Visits to the brewery offer enthusiasts a complete overview of the brewing process, beginning in the malt loft and continuing through the brew house, the fermentation process, the conditioning cellar, and finally to packaging.
