Walled city Londonderry, Derry

#7 of 115 in Things to do in Derry
Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
This city has an exceptional brewing & distilling heritage spanning from the brewery in Sir Henry Dowcra’s Fort in 1607, to the closure of the world-famous Watts & Company distillery in 1925.

That day in 1925 spelt the beginning of a barren period for local beers and spirits.

The beer market in particular has been consolidated and controlled by large overseas multinationals, with marketeers brewing fizzy insipid lagers.

Until now.

The Walled City Brewery will make uniquely local, premium quality, fabulously flavoursome craft beers in small artisan batches, using recipes that Masterbrewer James has been painstakingly perfecting over the last 12 years.
