On Saturday 18th of July saw us return to Smyths on the Square Navan. We showcased 4 breweries and 1 craft cider. It all kicked off at 4pm. Entry was €10 which included two tokens, BBQ and live entertainment.
In attendance we saw David Risso show casing beers by 8 Degrees
James Brown Brews with his award winning chocolate orange stout.
Olan with Dan Kellys Cider on draft.
Phil & Seamus from Brehon Brewhouse pouring Kilanny Red & Shanco Dubh on cask
Wayne was even lucky enough to tap the cask
Kentucky Ale with their fantastic bottle selection, bourbon and single malt
I was busy the day before baking up a storm. I did three batches of brownies using Kentucky Bourbon Barrel stout & James Browns orange chocolate stout. I even baked up his own batch as he missed out on them before.
It was a fantastic day, great atmosphere and the entertainment was fun. All I can say is I can’t wait for the next one. But who do we have I hear you ask, well ask no more:
Boyne Valley Cider
O Clerigh Brew Co
Once again entry is €10 including two tokens and BBQ. We can’t wait to see you all there on the 15th August from 4pm.
