Located along the Grand Canal in Sallins, County Kildare, Lock 13 BrewPub, serves up pub grub favourites made with local ingredients as well as a wonderful selection of craft beers made on-site by the Kildare Brewing Company.
Barry and Ola Flanagan have created a family-friendly gastropub overlooking the charming Grand Canal. When Barry and Ola were in Poland, they experienced a number of microbreweries which were attached to small pubs. Impressed by the setup, they started researching the brewpub business model. In 2017, following an investment in a micro-brewery, Barry and Ola started Kildare’s first brewpub and created Kildare Brewing at Lock 13. It is from here that they produce a range of craft beers using locally sourced roasted barley and amber malt. Barry is a qualified beer sommelier and has expertly paired their craft beers with the restaurant dishes. Barry says “the ethos at Lock 13 is local food from the land matched with drink from the land”.
Lock 13 BrewPub offers a fresh food experience and the novelty of many styles of craft beer created on site. When dining at Lock 13, you can view directly into the brewhouse and observe the craft beer process in action. This should whet your appetite and when it comes to ordering, you will be guided by the knowledgeable staff on pairing beer with your food.
There’s a creative twist with the dishes too in that the chef uses beer in some of the food. Choose the Lock 13 Club Sandwich made with lemon-scented Kildare Brewing Pale Ale marinated chicken. They even put beer in some of the delicious desserts.
This dining spot is a great place to catch up with friends and family with its casual relaxed atmosphere and mouthwatering food & drink offering which has local at its heart.
