After opening the restaurant in 2015 we realised there was a huge opportunity for an adjacent Taproom to serve drinks only without having to sit down for a meal!

Seven years planning (plus James's hair has changed colour!) and we opened Derry's first ever Taproom in September 2022.

This bespoke space has a "Producers" liquor licence, which means that the only alcoholic drinks that we can serve in here are the ones we produce on site. Most businesses would freak out at this. . . but we love it!

Our amazing array of beers, plus our rectified spirit range, classic cocktails and even some Austarlian Cabarnet Sauvignon & Pinot Grigio that we fermented ourselves!

The Taproom is also available for private hire - for more information click here

We have 15 different beer taps - the largest number in the city - that are all brewed onsite behind the glass! The core beers below are always on tap, then the other taps rotate according to the season and what mood we are in :-)


  • Kicks (4.1%): The original and only Derry Lager. Kicks is named after the song ‘Teenage kicks’ by the local band Undertones. Light, clean, refreshing...with a wonderfully balanced Magnum hop bitterness.

  • Boom (4.2%): Pale Ale. Boom is named after the blockade set up during the siege across the River Foyle during that time. Brewedwith citra hops giving it a vibrant tropical fruit aroma & flavour. 

  • Foyster (5%): Oyster Stout. This stout is brewed with the native lough Foyle flat bed oysters shell. It has a rich coffee, roasted body and creamy finish.

  • Stitch (5.2%): Stitch is named after the fabric production that was central to the city’s economy during the heights of it’s industrial period. It’s known as an Indian Pale Ale or I.P.A. with  stonger ABV (although not strong enough for some of our US customers!) and complex hop bill.

  • Wit (4.1%): Wit represents people from this area by name and by nature! A classic wheat beer with aromas of banana & clove.

  • Rock The Boat (4%): A brilliantly refreshing Hard Seltzer, named after an episode of "Derry Girls" .Flavours change according to the season and what mood Head Brewer Josh is in!

  • Passionista (4.1%): A game-changer. This beer was originally brewed in 2015 as a once-off, but was brought back due to unrelenting demand! Now it's qualified for core-beer status. 

  • 1689 (9%): An extraordinary beer with an extraordinary history - ther recipe for this Imperial Stout was originally found in a diary fromt the Siege of Derry.  Exclusively available in the Taproom, it was claimed to cure "Toothache, Heartache & Scurvy" (The WCB do not stand over these claims!)
