Anyone attending this over the next few days? Was there yesterday. Seems smaller than last year. Talking to a few of the Brewers there and it seems there was uproar because Guinness have a stand right inside the door! Promoting their new Open Gate Brewery.

White Hag have an amazing oatmeal stout that they run through a coffee bean 'rocket' at the tap. Most amazing thing I've ever tasted!

Loved their stand at Alltech.  Some tasty stuff.

WIcklow Wolf pulled out because of Diageo being there, it's just full of American 18 year olds getting pissed

There is a crowd there called Wicklow Brewery. Different to Wicklow Wolf.

I imagine today will be a nightmare there but yesterday was great. Not crowded at all. And there was a great discussion held by the Irish Times with a brewer from Rascals, White Hag and Mel's.

Funny how their logo changed from:

Wonder if the two are related? ;)

Spooky! where's Mulder & Scully when you need them.

Is this a spot the difference competition as I think I've got it

Spotted that little change as well >:D. I say the background chat from the brewers about the organizer's pulling that stunt was interesting ;).

Pretty poor form there I got to say.
Fermenting: IPA, Lambic, Mead
Conditioning: Lambic, Cider, RIS, Ole Ale, Saison
On Tap: IPA, Helles, Best Bitter

Yep, pretending to be craft!

I wonder will the culprit be found. A bit childish is this sort of behaviour.

Yeh, looks nothing like Nemo at all.

Thought they stopped using Isinglass though?

pob

Surprised there wasn't security there.

Bit daft alright.
