Walled City Brewery Beer Masterclass
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 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.
