The original BrewCon is back for the fifth time on Sat, 5th October 2019!
Since our inaugural event in 2015, we have brought you; the fundamental ingredients of brewing, pushing the boundaries on what you can achieve in a glass of beer and broadening your brewing skills to achieve even more in improving your brewing ability.
For our 5th event, we’ve decided to do something different. This year we are Raiding the Rascals.
Yes, that’s right, we’ll be taking over Rascals for the day at Rascals’ HQ; hosting a more dynamic open plan event in a live & kicking brewery. Not only that, we have a fantastic line-up of speakers from these various backgrounds:
- Ron Pattinson – Historical Beer Researcher
- Marshall Schott – Brülosopher
- Philip Woodnutt – Wicklow Hop Company
- Mini Talk sessions with Richard Silberry, Christina Wade, Sarah Pantry, Tom Coughlin, Dave Leitch, Andrew Moore, James Keane
- Featuring the return of the Bag ‘o’ Cans on the couch & introducing the Rascals Pizza Oven
With the change to the format, you’ll have a choice of talks as part of the afternoon’s Mini Talk breakout sessions. Choose from a range of niche talks on equipment setup, sensory analysis & judging beers and a look back at older styles & the history of beer.
Club Night makes it’s return, with exclusive access for BrewCon attendees this year showcasing the best brews from clubs across the country. Alongside a selection of commercial craft beers, we will have local clubs from all over the island pouring corny kegs of their own brews. We will have some great beers pouring and we encourage lots of inter-club mingling with a little bit of friendly rivalry too, as they show off their skills.
General tickets for BrewCon will go on sale on Wed 19th June at €60 for the day.
As we are limited to only 100 this year, NHC Members are getting a head start on purchasing tickets
