Headless Dogs, Twisted Hops and Belfast Blondes…

[ale_one_half] Hilden Brewery is a family run microbrewery located in Hilden outside the City of Lisburn, Co. Antrim. The brewhouse was once the stables of Hilden House, the former residence of the Barbour family. The brewery is situated behind the old Barbour Threads Linen Mill, one of the last surviving working linen mills in Northern Ireland, an industry that N. Ireland is renowned for. Sadly this stopped production in July 2006.

The brewery is now managed by Seamus and Ann’s son Owen who is a qualified and full time brewer. 

Hilden Beers are authentic, unprocessed, and free of artificial additives and preservatives. Their character comes from the careful selection and use of malt and hops, products of the harvest and the natural ingredients of beer.

Visitors to the brewery can discover the magic of brewing and learn about this ancient craft from our master brewer and perhaps share in his enthusiasm for the wonderful process which converts malt and hops into one of the finest beverages known to man, traditionally brewed beer. Afterward, they can sample the subtleties of flavour and character of Hilden’s finest beers.
