Places that stock Irish Craft Beer Finding beer from Ireland's craft breweries can be a daunting task.

The Good Craft Brewery Guide

A special for Christmas, The Good Craft Brewery Guide is a concise summary of Ireland’s emerging small scale brewing industry, it outlines the stories behind Ireland’s emerging craft brewers and details the styles and flavour characteristics of their beers.

Tim O'Rourke, the author of the book has reduced the price of the book for Christmas. It now costs €4 for Beoir members and €5 RRP for non members.

 

Please note that we do have to charge for shipping in Ireland at this price so if you can collect in person, that might be better.

 

 

Brewing Britain: Review

Brewing Britain

Andy Hamilton is a Bristol-based home brewer, teacher, gardener and forager. His first book, Booze for Free, was a guide to growing and foraging ingredients for making your own beer and wine. Brewing Britain, subtitled The Quest for the Perfect Pint and How to Make It has a wider scope, still covering the brewing element but adding a more general guide to beer and beer styles as well.

The format is very much that of a practical handbook for the total novice, starting with how to analyse beer: the colour, aromas and flavours and how they're achieved; glassware, serving temperature and cellaring. The second section moves us on into making our own beer, introducing the basics of sanitising, taking readings, priming and bottling, followed by concise descriptions of what's involved in kit, extract and all-grain brewing, and a guide to trouble-shoooting problems in finished beer. 

It's December

Christmas is coming and more importantly; not one but two Beoir Christmas parties. The main one is on the 13th of December at the Black Sheep on Capel street. Kicking off from 7pm with free finger food and if you are wise enough to be a full Beoir member, a free pint of Galway Bay beer when you arrive.

The second party, for those that can't make the first; is on the 20th at the same location and time. I'll be at both though, any excuse for a night of fine company and excellent beer.

Don't forget tonight, the Dublin Ladies Craft Beer Society have invited us to come along to J.W. Sweetman's for a tour and some drinks afterwards. It kicks off at 7:15 so don't be late if you plan on coming.

As usual, there will be no ICB meet in December but expect one in January at The Bull & Castle from 7pm on the second last Wednesday of the month.

So for now, have a very merry Christmas and keep an eye out for the Christmas specials from our wonderful Irish microbreweries.

The BeoirFinder App

BeoirFinder is a free, handy geo-location tool for finding pubs, restaurants and breweries in Ireland that serve Craft Beer. There has been a major boom in Irish Craft Breweries in recent years; This App is vital for anyone who values choice when it comes to beer selection. Beoir is the Gaelic for beer and is also the name of an independent group of consumers in Ireland. Our primary goal is to support and raise awareness of Ireland's native Independent microbreweries.

The BeoirFinder App is available on both the Apple Appstore and Google Play (Android). It's perfect for finding where you can get beer from an independent Irish microbrewery and often what's available at that location too. Future editions of the app will allow adding and updating entries from within the app.

Watch out for the gold icons in the app. These are the highly recommended or must visit destinations as voted for by Beoir members.
