Bullhouse Brewing Company was established by William Mayne in 2016. Based in a former bull pen on a family farm near Newtownards in county Down, the craft brewery started on a very small scale, producing 400 litres of beer per batch.

Demand soon began to outpace supply, so he enlisted the help of a local distributor and hasn't looked back since. In September 2017, William gave up his day job to concentrate on the brewery full-time, celebrating the occasion by brewing a Pale Ale and calling it P45!

William has now upgraded to a custom built brewhouse, with current fermentation capacity at 25,000 litres per year.

So far, alongside the core range of lager, pale ale, session IPA and IPA he has brought to market a Potato Saison, a Maple and Bacon Porter, a Lemon and Strawberry Berliner Weisse, a Toasted Coconut Porter and a Barrel Aged Imperial Milk Stout.

The brewery is the only one in Northern Ireland to produce all its products in cans.

In November 2017, William launched a Crowdfunding campaign to raise finance to support his expansion plans which include growing business in Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
