In this latest LaoisToday Podcast, we chat with Paddy McDonald, owner of Laois’s first craft brewery – 12 Acres in Killeshin.
Although he started out his working career as a Quantity Surveyor, he always had an interest in brewing and soon developed this into a business.
Initially he used a contract brewer in West Cork before building his own facility on the family farm in Killeshin.
He now supplies supermarkets, off licenses, hotels and bars all around Ireland and also exports to customers in France and Russia.
In this chat, he discusses the ongoing challenges, his hopes for the future and the thrill of securing a good deal.
