Brewery Announced For L'Derry

A new brewery has been announced for the city of L'Derry by urban regeneration company Ilex.

The new craft brewery will be located in Building 70 at Ebrington Square. The Walled City Brewery is being headed by local man James Huey, who has 12 years experience in the industry.

Ilex’s Business Manager, Niall McGurk said: "The Walled City Brewery is a welcome addition to Ebrington and fits perfectly with the Development Framework which seeks to attract new business and employment opportunities as a driver for creative and economic growth. It will also be a new tourist attraction for the city and will ultimately support six full-time and four part time jobs. Interestingly, early Victorian maps show a brewery adjacent to Ebrington located at the bottom of Browning Drive. Visitors to the brewery will get a guided tour, see the brewing process at first hand, and have the opportunity to taste and purchase the products on site."

The Walled City Brewery is scheduled to open by February 2015 and is expected to support 10 jobs.
