On your hops, get fermenting, go!

We’re excited to announce our inaugural Ready Steady Brew is taking place here at the brewery tomorrow. The best home brewers from the Garden County Brewers, North County Brewers, Munster Expat Brewers, Wooden Skull Brewers and Liffey Brewers will gather to compete in a head-to-head brew-off where only one team can claim beer glory.

In order to get their brew on we’ll supply the teams with a fresh delivery of Cascade hops picked from our hop farm in Roundwood. They’ll also be supplied with Irish pale malted barley and bittering hops to work up their creations.

Brewing gets underway at 12pm and come 5pm the beer will be left to ferment until  the all important taste testing gets under way. Our pack of judges will run the rule over the beers on a number of criteria including colour, quality, aroma and taste.

The winning team will take home the Ready Steady Brew trophy, a supply of our hops and ingredients and plenty of our beers to celebrate!

Follow all the brewing action on our Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter where we’ll have live updates and interviews with the brewers over the day.
