In this latest podcast episode, we have the pleasure of having a chat to Cormac from Dungarvan Brewing Company who have just celebrated their 10th Birthday. We chat about the last ten years and basically had a bit of craic with Cormac.
While recording we drank;
Helvick Gold – Blonde Ale
Copper Coast – Red Ale
Comeragh Challenger – Bitter / Session Pale Ale
Which are both widely available nationwide via their distributors Four Corners.
Podcast episode available via Spotify, Stitcher Radio, and Apple Podcasts.
We’ve not podcasted in ages, so it only takes a pandemic to get us back behind the Mic!
In this episode we are tasting 3 lovely beers from Dublin’s Hope Beer.
Hop On Session IPA
Pineapple & Passionfruit Sour
Foreign Export Stout
We also talk about how things are going during these strange times for our island, including the example of collaboration and great community spirit demonstrated by Craig P Kearney who took a rambling twitter thread of mine, and collated it all into one handy page for everyone to use to buy direct from Irish Breweries. Check it out https://directfrombrewery.com/ – anyone out there who wants to be added hit us up and we’ll get it updated pronto. Twitter thread below 👇
As always thanks for tuning in, our podcast is available on iTunes (Apple), Sticther Radio, and direct download here
In this latest interview we visited Larkins Brewing Company in Kilcoole County Wicklow, just outside Dublin, and right next to one of my favourite golf courses in the country, Druid’s Glen
We chat to Cillian about the brewery, how it came about and how it really is a family business. We looked back over their 1st 12 months when they launched at the RDS beer festival to where they are now, and where they’re looking at going.
The beers coming out of Larkins are really good and there will no doubt be more to come. A keen young brewer Cian Hurley, is heading up the production side, while brother Nick helping out full time too. There is a nice feel to the space and environment.
