Since we started the brewery in 2014, we have met some brilliant characters and brewery crews across world. It struck us that when two or more breweries get together the atmosphere turns into a collaborative, collective aspiration to work together in pursuit of endless possibilities.
We also noticed that the best events are run by breweries hosting other breweries, and we’ve wanted to create that type of event since soon after we started out. Our Second Birthday last year allowed us realise we could do it properly when 260 beer fans turned up at two weeks notice, to drink with us and our favourite breweries. This year we’re cranking it up a notch, and inviting the best breweries we’ve met on our travels to bring beers never poured in Ireland to descend on Sligo with Ireland’s Craft Beer community.
We are focusing on bringing ten breweries from ten countries leading the way in craft beer, pouring three beers each. We will also have a small select crew of Irish Breweries pouring a unique beer each.
We’ll be hosting the first tasting of our barrel programme for the adopters of the barrels, all of whom are coming to the festival that morning.
