Beer banter, craft and caint le Snugcast

Recording weekly podcasts from a pub snug near you, DJ Walsh and Eoin Tabb aka of Snugcast Podcast fame are gathering quite a following online with their beer and eclectic chats now available on various platforms. Exploring the craft beer sector one lively night at a time, they are a fun and engaging way to explore what’s happening in the very vibrant Irish craft brewing sector.

Never ones to rest, they are now also recording a monthly Snugcast video at Ardkeen Off Licence where they look at a few beers that caught their eye each month with the Ardkeen Pick one that caught ours. 

We are really pleased to have them in on for our Indie Beer Week Saturday afternoon tasting where there will be beer and banter a plenty and both being Irish speakers we are going bi-lingual for this one.  For the craic like.

Looking at some great beers from Galway Bay, Blacks of Kinsale, Dungarvan Brewing, Ballykilcavan, Kinnegar, Wicklow Wolf and Larkins it will be a whistle stop tour of the best beers from the north, south, east and west on the lovely island of Eire anus gan amhras, beidh spraoi iontach ann.

So let’s be having you from 2 – 4 on Saturday for beer banter, craft and caint. Irish is not a prerequisite for attending so just come along and join the fun, Snugcast style.

Cheers

Julie

    The simple malt bill gives an ABV of 5.8% which carries the flavour and really allows the hops to shine through. The hops used are of American origin, Columbus, El Dorado and Cascade (45 IBU).

The acidity and hop bitterness in this beer makes it great for standing up to most spicy dishes, such as Indian and Mexican dishes. The freshness of the beer makes for a great companion to grilled meats and barbecues.
