Walled City Brewery launches ‘Derry Milk’ beer

Derry’s Walled City Brewery has launched a new ‘LegenDairy’ themed ‘Derry Milk’ beer to celebrate Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink 2016.

Master Brewer James Huey has hand-crafted a single batch of chocolate stout and blended it with organic cow’s milk to create what is described as a “luscious, velvety beer”.

The beer is a celebration of NI’s Year of Food and Drink June theme of ‘Love Dairy’ and the Walled City Brewery will continue to launch a brand new beer every month based on the individual themes.

Master Brewer and owner James Huey said: “The Year of Food and Drink in 2016 is an extraordinary opportunity to put Northern Ireland on the map as a global destination for everything delicious.

“At the Walled City Brewery we pride ourselves in going against the grain by creating entirely new flavour combinations, and ‘Derry Milk’ is just another in the line of exciting new beers that Northern Ireland and possibly the rest of the world have never heard of!”

Welcoming the exciting announcement, Mary Blake, Tourism Development Officer with Derry City and Strabane District Council, said the news followed the Walled City Brewery’s success in securing ‘Most Promising New Business 2016’at the recent Northern Ireland Tourism Awards held in Derry.

She added: “The launch of their innovative new product is a brilliant example of the Walled City Brewery’s commitment to grasping the opportunities presented by NI Year of Food and Drink 2016. What a great way to celebrate this month’s Love Dairy theme by releasing a new product on a ‘LegenDairy’ theme.”

‘Derry Milk’ will be exclusively available at the Walled City Brewery, Ebrington Square, Derry-Londonderry throughout June 2016.
