Unique pizzas from Whitewater Brewery in Castlewellan

FoodNI member Whitewater Brewery in Castlewellan, Co Down has launched a unique Taproom and Pizzeria, Beer Dough.

The new venture specialises in sourdough pizza and specialises in local ingredients. All the pizzas are made fresh in the brewery.

Owner Bernard Sloan, the master brewer and pizza creator, explains: “We are really almost passionate about our pizza as we are about our beer. We have created five supreme, sourdough pizzas that are handmade and to be enjoyed with our beers.

“We have our own sourdough culture that’s proven for 48 hours before stone baking to create supreme flavour and a delicious crust.”

The pizzas are available every Saturday from 5pm for sit-in or takeaway. The tap room enables the beers to be bought or enjoyed on-site.

Whitewater is a multi-award-winning craft brewery that specialises in a range of stouts and ales in bottles, cans and kegs, all of which are produced on-site in Castlewellan.

The brewery is now Northern Ireland’s most successful producer of beers. It recently began distribution of Tempted award-winning ciders and launched its own session cider in collaboration with the Portadown-based cidery.
