Northbound Brewery hails from Derry-Londonderry where David and Martina Rogers craft award winning premium beers. Returning home in 2010 after almost a decade in Australia, the couple felt bound by the North West of Ireland hence the brewery name. These emigrant years have been invaluable as David gained experience within Australian and Japanese breweries. David’s knowledge has now been recognised by the Institute of Brewing and Distilling, having been awarded the prestigious Master Brewer qualification, a rare recognition only bestowed upon a dozen people globally each year. Martina worked within the financial services sector where she gained sales and marketing skills. Northbound Brewery prides itself on producing premium, unpasteurised beers that are unfiltered, with no artificial additives and bottled fresh on site. Using local ingredients where possible including Irish malt, Derry water and Irish carrageenan moss the brewery has released 2 beers to date, “08” a Kölsch Style Beer and “26” a Pale Ale. The 08 Kölsch Style Ale won a Great Taste Award in 2015. Looking ahead, Northbound Brewery is continuing to trial natural new ingredients that celebrate the high quality of produce in the region, and are collaborating with local producers to bring out the best of the North West. The award-winning producer, Dart Mountain Cheese has washed its cheese with their 26 Pale Ale. Bannagher Bold will be released in September 2015.
