* Fermanagh Beer Company brews the Inishmacsaint brand of beers at Old Pal’s Bar in Derrygonnelly, but as the beers are widely available outside of the bar and town, it is listed as a brewery rather than a brewpub.
** Dopey Dick is also listed as a brewery here but its beers can only be found on tap at the Grand Central bar and Guildhall Taphouse in Derry.  However, the beers are not brewed in the pubs but on the edge of the city.
Confused?
