Looking to treat your other half, Dad, brother or mate this Christmas? Why not give them the gift of a Kildare pint, brewed locally in the Lock 13 distillery. All the house beers of Lock 13 are brewed on site in the Kildare Brewery, and use minch malts from along the banks of the Grand Canal in Athy.
Have a night to remember this December with friends or family with a local fresh premium beer, and for those designated drivers or under 18s, don’t forget Lock 13 has a delicious three-course Christmas menu to enjoy.
