European Elections 2014: Vote Beer!

European Election 2014

Update: The results are in!
Click here to view.

On 23rd May Ireland will go to the polls to elect 11 members of the European Parliament, to serve a five-year term representing the citizens of Midlands-North-West, South and Dublin. Decisions taken by the parliament over its next term will affect voters in a wide variety of ways across many parts of their daily lives. It is of paramount importance that we choose the candidates which best represent our beliefs and will fight our corner on the European stage.

Beoir wants to ensure that, as far as beer policy is concerned, voters are making the right choice in this election. To this end we have joined with our colleagues in the European Beer Consumers Union to survey election candidates across Europe, seeking their take on issues which affect all European beer drinkers and which fall into the remit of the European institutions.

How it works
Later this week, an e-mail will be sent to every European election candidate* inviting them to participate in our online survey.
The survey presents candidates with statements on issues such as:
- Beer's importance in history and society
- Responsible drinking
- The drinkers' right of choice
- The right to know what goes into our beer
- Taxation of beer
and asks their opinions on these matters.

Prior to the election, voters will be invited to visit the polling website and view the results, seeing what their candidates think on the issue of beer and drinkers' rights, or if they even care about it enough to offer any opinion. You'll even be able to take the survey yourself and be automatically matched to the local candidate whose views are most in agreement with your own.

Though this is just a bit of pre-election fun, the real business of fighting the beer drinkers' cause will continue after the election, by Beoir in Ireland, and by our EBCU representatives in Brussels.

If you're a candidate, party official or election agent and didn't get an e-mail from the EBCU, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Porterhouse Craft Beer and Spirits Festival 2014

Porterhouse Beer and Spirits Festival 2014

The annual springtime celebration of independent Irish beers and spirits begins across the Porterhouse estate from 10th April, running to the 27th. During this period, beers will be available from Rascal's, N17, Kinnegar, Metalman, Hilden, Galway Hooker, Carlow, Trouble, Mountain Man and more. It will also see the return of The Porterhouse's own much-loved Chocolate Truffle Stout.

Beer isn't the whole story, now that the Dingle Distillery is part of the Porterhouse family. The Celtic Whiskey Shop -- arguably Dublin's most-respected spirits retailer -- will be hosting craft spirits tasting in various Porterhouse pubs over the course of the festival, in addition to the beer tastings run by producers and distributors. Keep an eye on the Porterhouse's social media for details of tastings.
