As many in the country descend upon a field in Laois, we choose the best cans to accompany your festival experience. Make sure to recycle and imbibe responsibly. Opt in to our newsletter here and we will select a lucky winner for a can of each.
Brooklyn Summer Ale: 5%, One for when you've just landed at the festival, you've dragged your tent, sleeping bag, the esky full of cans and ice and the Snickers bar that you found in the top pocket of that coat you haven't worn since February, to the centre of the mayhem that is the Jimi Hendrix camp ground. In short, you are bloody thirsty. Boom, Brooklyn Summer Ale. Its an English Pale Ale style so you can expect a sparkling body with a light bitterness that will cure the parched gullet you have built up.
Metalman Pale Ale: 4.3% Metalman Brewery stands out in the Irish craft brewing scene for charting their own course. Their first release, Metalman Pale Ale, made it into to a can for your festival enjoyment. This fruity, slightly hoppy and aromatic pale ale is a welcome all-dayer holding a thoughtful 4.3% ABV of refreshment!
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale: 5.6% The pale ale that other pale ales look up to as their cooler, older cousin. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale flips through the pages of beer history laughing at the insipid lagers and pilsners that went before it, all the while beaming generously at all the fine pales ales that have come after. Loads of citrus bite and fragrant hops. Hugely refreshing.
Firestone Walker Pivo Pils: 5.3% If you are looking for something a little less fruity in your life you should plump for Pivo Pils. At 5.3% it is punchy enough to keep you on your toes but not to knock you out. Similarly its flavour is balanced, clean and crisp with a constant effervescence and slight bitter hit.
Beavertown Smog Rocket: 5.4% Made with a blend of 9 different malts including a rauch or smoked malt, this is the malty, molases kick you might need on a frosty festival morning. Sitting at only 5.4% its kinda like Cocoa Pops, only very much not.
