We had a great tour with Jasmine! She know their product inside and out. Tiny, off the beaten path brewery. A must do while in Kinsale.

Super tour with loads of opportunity to taste a few beers and some delicious gin. I'm not a beer drinker at all but there is such a huge variety that there is something for everyone's palate. Only disappointment is that the delicious specialty beers aren't...More
