Irish Craft Beer Festival

Irish Craft Beer Festival runs at St. George's Dock, IFSC from March 15th-19th

With Carlow Brewing Company, Carrig Beers, Dingle Brewing Company, Dungarvan Brewing Company, Eight Degrees Brewing and more confirmed, the Irish Craft Beer Festival kicks off this Thursday at midday at St. George’s Dock at the IFSC in Dublin. This year’s five-day stint at the IFSC promises to be a “celebration of Irish craft brewing, live music, and fabulous Irish artisan food stalls!”.

In fairness, it sounds exactly like my kind of weekend. The rugby will be screened at the weekend as well and there’s live music from Thursday through Sunday to keep you entertained while enjoying some of Ireland’s finest craft beers.

Members of craft beer appreciation group Beoir will host a series of 30 minute presentations during Friday and Sunday on “Brewing Since the Time of St. Patrick”, showing how brewing in Ireland has evolved over the ages with the opportunity to sample and discuss different beer styles.

The festival is over 18s only and admission is €10. The admission fee applies from midday Saturday to close on Sunday, with free access 12pm to 7pm Thursday and Friday and all day on Monday.
