The Story of the Producer
Eight Degrees Brewery
Following their hearts to Ireland, New Zealander Scott Baigent, and Australian Cameron Wallace, founded Eight Degrees Brewing in 2010 - an award-winning independent Irish craft brewery, passionate about producing exciting and adventurous beers using only natural ingredients. The name comes from the fact that Ireland is located at eight degrees west longitude, and it also happens to be the perfect serving temperature for their beer. Eight Degrees beers have unique characters, which even translates to the description on the bottles; Sunburnt Irish Red: “Like an Irishman on holidays in the Canaries, this beer has a red tint with a chilled out mellow feel,” Other beers include Howling Gale Ale, Knockmealdown Porter and Barefoot Bohemian Pilsner. The seasonal A Winter’s Ale was developed using a custom-made spice blend from one of Ardkeen's other food heroes Green Saffron, also located in Cork. Artisan supporting artisan…that’s what we like to see.
