Farmhouse beers from Donegal

NB: Brewery tours now take place at K2 in Letterkenny!

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 late Spring 2017 the brewery moved 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.
