Whitewater Brewing Company

Whitewater Brewery was established in 1996 on the family farm in the heart of the Mourne Mountains near Kilkeel. Since then the craft beer scene has really taken off and Whitewater produces some of the best brews around. They are multi award-winning.

They make sure to use only the finest ingredients in their range of ales, lagers and stouts. Once you try them you will be hooked.
Their new visitor centre has just opened. Book tours via the website.
