The Co-op comprises 7 friends who know each other either from the martial arts or punk rock scene in Belfast. For the Co-op members, home brewing is part of a mutual interest of growing fruit and vegetables, foraging, rearing pigs and chickens and a general love of self sufficiency. The brewery itself is situated on 5 acres of land where we have 360 Cider apple and Perry pear trees, 10 pigs, 5 chickens, 4 dogs, 1 goat, fruit and veg plots and a bee hive! The trees are in their infancy and they are hoping in the coming years to have a line of Farmageddon Cider and Perry from these ancient breeds. The bees will help to pollinate all the plants.
