Lacada is a multi-award winning brewery based in Portrush. It was set up with a Community Share Offer which brought together 283 co-owners who share a love of great beer and the north coast. Since 2015 they have continually produced superb beers with eye catching names, based around local landmarks and legends.
Devil’s Washtub is a beguiling dark ale that has chocolate and caramel malty notes with a hoppy and slight orange peel undertone. It scooped Best New Product 2017 at Blas na hEireann whilst the consistently superb Utopian Stout garnered Silver in the stouts section at the same award ceremony. One of Lacada’s runaway hits is East the Beast – a hoppy, fruity (think pineapple) IPA that is named after the popular surfing wave at East Strand in Portrush.
With an ever expanding roster of new beers, Lacada has established itself as the brewery to follow, and not just for their own beer. This innovative co-operative also run a real gem of a festival each autumn – the Portrush Beer and Food Festival. The packed out event is attended by some of the leading micro-breweries from across Ireland and the UK, with a diverse range of beers. With the brewers on hand to serve and talk about their beers the atmosphere is amazing.
