OUR STORY

Treat your senses to a beer masterclass at the Walled City Brewery. Hear the history of beer, from 9000 BC to Ancient Rome, from Prohibition to the 21st century.

Smell the grassy hops and caramelly malt that goes into this brewhouse’s concoctions. Feel the raw ingredients as you make your own mini beer. And taste about 10 different samples – from a 3000-year-old recipe from Mesopotamia (which, brewer James Huey fully admits, tastes “like nail polish remover”), to creamy Derry Milk chocolate stout and the topical, tongue-in-cheek Beerexit sour beer.

There’s plenty of craic and laughter along the way, plus paired artisanal bites such as cheese and chorizo which complement the beers and reflect the Walled City Brewery’s passion for local produce (which saw it awarded Best Gastropub in Ireland). Tours are available every Friday from April to August, with private group bookings also catered for throughout the year.

IT'S OUR PLEASURE

Legenderry Food Festival, Guildhall - 2017

OUR STORY

This is a special wee place like no other. Our unique geography and diverse climate create the ideal conditions for our food and drink industry to flourish. Our produce harvested and crafted locally from both land and lough is influenced by the latest food trends worldwide.

The city of Derry~ Londonderry was built here originally because of its proximity to food and in particular food from the Foyle. The Foyle is a great natural resource featuring many streams and rivers that start in the Sperrin and Donegal mountains which flow into the Lough and out to the Atlantic Ocean. The shores of Lough Foyle provides a vast array of shellfish with the Lough Foyle Irish Flat Oyster being the jewel in the Foyles crown.

The city is the gateway to wider regional food experience – award winning artisan producers, restaurants and Slow Adventures in the Sperrins are packaged and promoted in a modern interpretation of our history and heritage, creativity and culture and reflect our active lifestyle and spirit of adventure.

There is an emergence of a cluster of street food offerings who are carving out their own niche following, with their distinctive, authentic food and vibe. This is also reflected in unique food experiences and festivals which are an integral part of the city and regions event and festival programme, both through standalone events such as the Slow Food Festival and wider events such as Halloween and Foyle Maritime Festival featuring Flavours of the Foyle.

    Walled City Brewary

    For eclectic local craft beers brewed on site, creative, locally sourced food, and a lively, fun-filled atmosphere, visit the multi-award-winning Walled City Brewery, at the end of the beautiful Peace Bridge.

    In this bustling brewery, there’s a history lesson in every glass. Brewer James Huey’s imaginative craft beers include Boom, a pale ale referencing the 17th century Siege of Derry; Stitch, celebrating our once flourishing shirt factories; and a sour brew called Beerexit (you can guess the origins of that one). There’s even a Sister Michael stout, in honour of the hugely successful Derry Girls TV comedy.

    Opened in 2015, it’s Derry-Londonderry’s first craft brewery in a century, and the first in the country to have a fully operating brewery and accompanying restaurant in the same building. The food is as inspired as the beer. It champions local produce including the Lough Foyle Irish Flat Oyster (with the leftover shells used to make creamy Foyster oyster stout), Whiteoaks organic vegetables, and Grants pulled pork. “People are proud of this city and the journey its been on,” says James. The cocktails here are made with craft spirits, and there are no multinational beers available either, he adds. “There aren’t many places crazy enough to do that!”
