Established in 1996 amidst the spectacular Mountains of Mourne, Whitewater Brewery is Northern Ireland’s largest microbrewery.
The brewery was called one of the best in the world in the prestigious International Beer Challenge 2007 and their beers have won many awards over the years, including their Clotworthy Dobbin and Belfast Lager being named as one of the 50 best beers in the world in the International Beer Challenge 2007 and 2008, respectively.
They produce a selection of cask beers, a lager in keg and many bottled beers, all of which are handcrafted in small batches.
The brewery has its own gastropub, the White Horse Inn, located 5 miles from the brewery in Saintfield. Tours of the brewery are possible but must be booked in advance.
Check the website for a listing of where to find their beer in bottles, kegs and casks in Northern Ireland, which are widely available there. The beers are also available in the Republic.
