Inside this saloon bar you'll find Bell’s Brewery on full display, where you can observe the entire brewing process, up close and personal, from the comfort of your seat. Unpasteurised, unfiltered beer born and brewed in Belfast. Smell the malt being mashed and the hops being added to the boil on brew days and fully immerse yourself in this new experience in Belfast. With state-of-the-art brewing equipment, these are the only copper Brewiks tanks to be found in Europe!
The origins of Bell’s Brewery date back to 1778, when founder John Bell operated one of the first-known commercial breweries in Belfast and helped kickstart the beer revolution in the city during this time. The team at the Deer’s Head are passionate about reviving what was once the city’s thriving brewery quarter.
With beers named after once known pubs of Belfast including their core North Star Lager, Black Bull Stout & Monkey Shaving the Goat IPA, rotating specials and a fantastic local craft beer selection, The Deer’s Head is the perfect city centre destination for beer enthusiasts. With tasting flights available, it’s also the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to explore craft beer for the first time. They are also purveyors of the finest quality spirits with over 120 whiskies and 70 gins on their shelves.
