The Hop Wars: Friday night at the battle front

This Friday sees the final of our current Beer Series and we’re off to the battlefront to investigate “The Hop Wars and Those Who Fight Them”. Squadrons of IPAs, double IPAs, triple IPAs and others are lined up for action. Fireworks are assured.

Beer aficionados might already be familiar with names like Torpedo, Double Dog and Flipside but you won’t often get the chance to taste, discuss and enjoy them all together on an evening. For beer novices — and let’s face it, that’s the vast majority of beer drinkers amongst us — this is a great opportunity to push the hop boundaries that you’ve already discovered through the likes of our own Scraggy Bay and Rustbucket. These two will of course also be at the battlefront, in the light artillery division, along with our big gun, Black Bucket.

Tickets cost €20 and include light food and anything but light amounts of beer. The event takes place in the Taproom at Rathmullan House and begins at 7.30pm. Scarpello & Co’s splendid wood-fired pizzas are available from 5.30 to 9pm. Telephone 074 915 8874 or 086 830 1392 to book your spot.
