Seán first appeared on Kinnegar’s radar when he applied for a bartending position in our Taproom at Rathmullan House. It took a remarkably short time to establish that he was exactly the man for the job and we didn’t hang around before offering him a position. We sealed the deal and have never looked back. It was only several years after he donned his Kinnegar colours that we discovered a skeleton in his cupboard.
Walla Walla appears for its sixth season this year. Our batch size has long since outgrown the rhubarb patches of Rathmullan and Rick has decided on a different approach to making this seasonal sour. Time to turn to the professionals.
Whether surfing, hiking or cycling, many of us have taken the enforced isolation of the past months as an excuse to get outdoors more. As life slowly gets back to normal we plan to share some of our favourite places for a walk, run or cycle across the island. #FollowTheHopsOutside.
Rustbucket, Black Bucket, Bucket and Spade, Phunk Bucket. Bucket Brigade ... anyone else notice a common thread here? No, it's not a case of the folks at Kinnegar having a bizarre obsession with buckets. Our fascination is more with what's in the bucket – rye malt.

Our quest for the perfect low alcohol pale ale sees the ABV of Low Tide rising to 1%. The pertinent question, why?
Yep, that's pretty much our branding in a nutshell. A big thanks to one of our twitter fans for putting it so simply and succinctly. Nothing in life is however quite that simple...
The move from K1 to K2 will be familiar to most Kinnegar fans but even the most ardent Kinnegar fan is unlikely to be familiar with the little pilot facility in our utility room where we learned to brew and developed some of our first beers, including Scraggy Bay, Rustbucket, Limeburner, and Devils Backbone. Libby refers to it as K0 but Pre-K is more apt — brewing preschool.
