Brehon Brewhouse was founded by dairy farmer Seamus McMahon who wanted to diversify his family homestead and so this Irish craft brewery was born. Brehon Brewhouse offers an immersive experience for craft beer enthusiasts in a cosy, intimate setting. The tours draw on the wealth of literary and familial history from the Carrickmacross and County Monaghan region.
See where it all began with a visit to the farm's milking parlour. This is followed by a trip to the brewery to see the master brewer and his apprentice at work. All brewing, bottling and canning is done on site to the highest quality using ingredients from the local farming community and eco-friendly, unhurried methods.
Round off this experience with a tasting of Brehon Brewhouse's range in the historic family home. Here you will enjoy more nuggets of history about the famous local poet, Patrick Kavanagh and tales of the characters who lived in the area.
Tours are generally given on Saturdays. Larger group tours can be arranged any day. Anyone interested in the micro-brewing process, the Irish dairy farming industry or Irish history will not be disappointed. In fact, you may discover a new favourite brew.
