Welcome Flávio! Keep an eye on www.breweryjobs.ie for job opportunities. We also have a brewery just opened in Dublin which is owned by a Brazilian, called Hopfully. Cristiano might be able to help you find your feet here. Good luck!

New member here - Liam, living in Rathmines, where I am never too far away from a decent beer. Looking forward to paying a visit to the Beer Festival at the RDS in a couple of weeks and sampling a few new additions. I would be a Big IPA fan, which is useful, given the plethora of this style of beers around, certainly a favourite of Irish brewers, in all its forms.

Look forward to meeting like minded souls in the near future....

Postby Kinsale Mead » Wed Dec 13, 2017 11:31 am

Hi all our names are James, Denis and Kate,
We are Kinsale Mead Co and we have recently opened the doors of our new Meadery here in Kinsale, Co. Cork.
We currently have two Meads for sale;

1). Atlantic Dry Mead---> This is a delicious traditional mead, made from raw Spanish orange blossom honey and local Innishannon water, fermented and matured to finish at 12% with lovely citrus aroma and long lingering hint of honey with almost no sweetness. We wonder if over time the salty air from the wild atlantic will add its own unique flavours to our mead.

2). Wild Red Mead--->This is a refreshing melomel made from spanish forest honey blend, blackcurrants and cherries to create an amazingly enticing drink with beautiful colour, zesty fruity flavour, tempered with the hint of honey. Wild Red is in honour of Kinsale’s famous red headed pirate Anny Bonny who was born close to the high cliffs by the Old Head.

Our Meads are available in the following places in this link; https://www.kinsalemeadco.ie/stockists/

If anyone has any questions we will try to reply as fast as possible or you can contact us directly and find out more through our website: http://www.kinsalemeadco.ie/

In the meadtime :wink:
All the best,
Kinsale Mead Co.

Great to have you aboard.

Is this the first, Irish based mead producer now? I think Bunratty Mead is imported and is just for tourists. I'm not clear on that but I don't think the Bunratty winery/meadery has produced anything in some time.

Bunratty is made here, and is still on the go, but it's a pyment, not a true mead.

I heard it wasn't even a pyment but a vermouth.

There is also a meadery in Sligo- it's attached to Lough Gill. Tried some of their mead at the RDS, it's a little young but it's going in the right direction.

I’m not seeing the member forum - does it need to be switched on? Is this where I see how to get discounts at the home brew online shops?
