Irish Craft and Beer and Cider Festival 2013

I mentioned last week that I’d be heading along to the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival 2013 at the weekend, well I did, or should I say we did, Patrick and I. We went along on Sunday and had a great ol’ time. There were mixed reviews on how popular this years event was with some saying there were 5,000 who attended and others saying 7,000 either way it was a huge success. Saturday night was apparently like a crazy gigantic wedding with 2,000 people merrily going about while having an ol’ jig to the live band that played. Next year I think I’ll make the Saturday night … just to experience it.

Jigging and merry business aside, the fact that the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival 2013 was bigger and more popular than previous years is a testament to how popular crafty beers and independent beer, ale, stout and cider companies are becoming. I think it’s brilliant and I was amazed to see established companies who’ve been around for the past 16 or 17 years stand next to those who have only been about since June or July!!! Unbelievable!
