STUART CLARK previews the Atlantic-straddling array of breweries heading to Dublin 4 this weekend!
All roads lead to the RDS from September 7-9 as the Irish Craft Beer Festival returns for three glorious days (and nights!) to Dublin 4. Over 200 beers, ciders and spirits will be available for your imbibing pleasure with online tickets starting at just a tenner.
As you can see from the panel opposite, the list of participants ranges from tiny micros and boutique distillers to esteemed American guests and major independents like O’Hara’s whose head honcho, Seamus O’Hara (below), founded the festival in 2011 when there were a mere 14 Irish craft brewers as opposed to the hundred-plus there are now on both sides of the border.
