Ballykilcavan Brewery

In 2004, David Walsh-Kemmis took over the family farm at Ballykilcavan, near Stradbally and became the 13th generation of his family to run it. With ever falling returns from farming, David and his wife Lisa realised that they had to diversify their farm to secure its future, and this led to them setting up their brewing company in 2016. As the main crop on the farm is malting barley, David and Lisa grow 100% of the barley used to brew their beers. Ballykilcavan Brewing offers two core beers - Bin Bawn Pale Ale and Brickyard Red Ale - and  is currently expanding their beer range and installing a brewery in their 230 year old stone grain store.
