In this episode of the Irish Beer Snob podcast, Janice and Wayne have a sup of the New Rye River Brewing Beers made exclusively for Dunne’s Stores. Grafters is the name of the range, featuring presently a Pale Ale, and an IPA.
These are total new beers brewed from the ground up, and not re badges of the existing beers in the Rye River Portfolio.
We also chat about our brew day from 11th April where the Royal County Brewers brought down a bunch of homebrewers who were keen to brew in a Commercial Brewery and have a bit of craic as well.
And lastly – we have an interview with Tobias of To Ol from Denmark who we had the pleasure of meeting in Dublin this past week at a meet a brewer event organised by Four Corners in P Macs bar in Dublin 2. Tobias kindly settles definitively the correct pronunciation of his Brewery and the story behind it!

In this the 4th episode of the Irish Beer Snob Podcast, our intrepid duo take on the very impressive Brewdog Russian Doll four pack.
Big thanks to Ian from 11pmsomewhere.com that arranged the pack for us as this is going to be difficult to source in Ireland due to the limited quantity that came over from Scotland. There are a few in Dublin and Cork who have it – get on to your local indie to see if they can hook you up.
