Named after the famous Belfast poet, the bar on Belfast’s Donegall Street owned by Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre will now be run by Boundary Brewery Co-op in a third party agreement

Boundary, which opened in East Belfast’s Portview Trade Centre in 1999 as a community co-op, has a permanent taproom under the new agreement, which after many years at pop-up events is a dream come true.

Brewery members will mingle with the public and visitors to the city in this dedicated hub to enjoy the many brews on offer. The website states, “We are really humbled, and equally excited about such an amazing opportunity to help build on the legacy of the Hewitt, as a socially minded, community-based, beer-centric hub in Belfast, offering world class hospitality.”

The bar boasts 16 taps, 8 Boundary, 2 rotating and a permanent tap for Cloudwater, Verdant, Deya, Kinnegar, Galway Bay and Whiplash.
