We just love our craft beer and Hilden can boast of being Ireland’s oldest independent brewery. They’ve been producing full-flavoured, hand-crafted beers at their Lisburn site since 1981. Their brewing methods are all about combining heritage, tradition and the best of contemporary tastes to produce the best beers possible.
The brewery now produces draught beers covering the full spectrum of tastes including a stout, a blonde, a premium red, a wheat, a pale and IPA’s. These are available in draught and bottles, which are packaged on site. They’re all authentic and unprocessed. We can fully vouch for their character. You just know they take great care selecting the finest natural ingredients. It’s all in the taste!
