Craft Beer on tap

Prepare to put on your beer goggles this weekend, as the RDS will be hopping (see what we did there?) with over 100 beers and ciders this weekend at the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival.

Beer is definitely having a boom moment right now, and craft beer sales were up a whopping 42 per cent last year, so it’s the perfect time to try a pint of lovingly created Irish brew. This year’s festival features 25 craft beer manufacturers, and five artisan cider-makers.

Not a beer fan? There’ll also be tasty food stalls stacked with pizzas and pies, a whiskey corner and, of course, a big ol? TV screen showing the match. Tickets cost €10, and you can get ?em at the door, or in advance from selected local off-licences and craft beer pubs.
