A lifetime of Larkin’s
Cillian, living in Paris, has the idea to open a brewery in Ireland that is 100% independently owned by the family.
Nick, Cillian’s brother, starts brewing at home in the family kitchen.
Kicked out and banished from the family kitchen by mum, they buy bigger home brewing equipment and move to the garden shed!
2015 / 2016
After years of talking about it as a family, the decision is taken to make brewing the new family business.
The family travel to various brewery manufactures and finally place an order for the system that is now in place in Kilcoole.
Equipment starts arriving and the brewery is built and commissioned. Late 2017, test beers are put out at the Irish craft beer festival at the RDS.
Larkin’s formally launches into the market at the Alltech beer festival in March.
