This August sees the return of the Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival to the RDS with craft beers, live music and fabulous artisan foods aplenty.
With the weather this fine it’s not like we need another excuse to have another cold alcoholic beverage, but who are we to say no to a festival in honour of our own Irish craft beers and ciders?
The Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival is back in the RDS this August 27th to 29th, celebrating Irish craft brewing alongside music and artisan food. Brewers and cider makers will fill up over 50 stands with more than 200 beers and ciders on offer. Plus it’s a chance to meet the brewers, learn about craft beers and cider making and sample exclusive Irish products – some of which are only available at the festival.
So far the line-up includes Galway Hooker, Dingle Brewing Company, Kelly’s Mountain Brew, Wicklow Wolf, Metalman Brewing and Kinnegar. Cider makers putting in an appearance are Dan Kelly’s Falling Apple, Toby’s Handcrafted Cider and Scotts Irish Cider – plus many more.
Tickets cost from €10.00 plus booking fee and are available online. Ticket price also includes a free souvenir glass.
Festival opening hours:
– Thursday, August 27th – 5pm till 11pm
– Friday, August 28th – 5pm till 12.30am
– Saturday, August 29th – 2pm till 12.30am
