Indie Beer Week kicks off tomorrow across the country and the countdown continues to our Big Day Out at the Brewery. Here are some nuts and bolts:
You’ll find K2 in the Ballyraine Industrial Estate. It looks quite different to the idyllic setting of K1 that you see on our Facebook masthead at the moment. That just makes the surprise all the better when you go inside!
There’s parking at the brewery. Please park considerately to allow everyone to squeeze in.
The event kicks off at 2pm and runs until a punctual finish at 8pm. It’s a drop-in event — you don’t need to be there from start to finish so fit it into your day as suits you best.
Brewery tours will run every half hour or so and you can put your name on the list for the tour of your choice when you arrive. Children will be treated to Rick’s special Kid’s Brewery Tour — not to be missed. We’ll probably run this twice during the afternoon.
As well as beer, we’ll be serving homemade soft drinks including some highly experimental shrubs.
Food will be available thoughout the afternoon — Scarpello & Co’s grilled cheese sandwiches as well as fresh oysters.
We’ll be unveiling our brand new Kinnegarland poster and our traditional metal beer signs in our Kinnegar corner shop. We’ll also have the usual T-shirts, hoodies, glasses and gift packs.
Tours and demos will finish up by 5.30pm, in time for Basork’s live performance shortly after 6pm.
All beer will be served in return for a donation to Pieta House.
And remember, the event is booked out so please don’t travel, if you’re not already on the list.
