Review: The Oxford Companion To Beer

The Oxford Companion To BeerThe Oxford Companion to Wine was first published in 1994 and is now in its third edition. It is widely regarded as the authoritative work on wine by both connoisseurs and those in the trade, with contributions from the most well-respected writers in the field of viticulture and oenology. It is, in short, a book for people who take their wine seriously.

That in 2011 the Oxford University Press published an equivalent volume for beer is the clearest sign yet that our poor relation of the drinks industry is suddenly finding respect among the public at large. But does The Oxford Companion to Beer rise to the task of being beer’s authoritative work?

Beer of the Year 2012

Voting has closed on the 2012 Beoir Beer of the Year Awards.

We are delighted to announce that Shandon Century Extra Stout from the Franciscan Well Brewery in Cork City has been chosen as the Irish beer drinkers' favourite beer for this year.

Second place was awarded to Windjammer, an amber ale produced by Metalman Brewing of Waterford, and third place also went to Metalman for Metalman Pale Ale.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who took part in the voting.

Pre-Budget Submission 2011

In keeping with its remit to support native Irish microbreweries and defend drinkers' rights, Beoir has made a pre-Budget submission to the Department of Finance and Revenue Commissioners.

The document sets out a three-point plan for encouraging artisan brewing in Ireland and making it more accessible for customers:

  1. An allowance for producers to sell directly to the public at their premises without requiring an additional off-sales licence
  2. Permission for producers to sell directly at Local Authority-approved farmers' markets
  3. Reform of the bond required by Revenue of microbreweries

The full text of the submission is available for download here.
