Athlone, a town situated on the banks of the River Shannon, literally in the middle of Ireland is about to get a new brewery. It’s first brewery in many many years. Dead Centre Brewing, quite a clever name, and nice clean branding too.
We got to sit down with Liam Tutty, founder of Dead Centre brewing, to discuss his plans for opening a brewery in Athlone, his background and of course get a taste of their new Session Pale Ale, </Sourcecode> which was launched in The Malt House that evening.
After our interview, we got to see the plans of the new brewery, and to say it’s ambitious would be an understatement, but it could very well be a template for similar across Ireland in similar sized towns.
It’s clear Liam believes strongly in local business, and supporting local as much as possible. We look forward to following his progress over the coming weeks and months. Give them a follow on twitter here , instagram , and their website here
