Ballykilcavan Farm and Brewery 

The first of the windows has gone into the millhouse. Lovely and cosy in there now.


You might have noticed that we love our IPAs at Eight Degrees - that's why we put together this case of IPA cans for our online shop featuring four different IPAs:

Why are we called LINEMAN?

We’re often asked about our name; we’re called LINEMAN as a tribute to my late father who worked as a Lineman for both the ESB and P&T in the 1940s and ‘50s. He stayed with the P&T (that eventually became Telecom Éireann and later Eircom) until he retired in 1996. There’s a nice lineage there as that same year Mark got his first job with Eircom until he left to start work on setting up LINEMAN in 2018.

 A new brew!

Introducing Copacabana, a velvety and intensely tropical 6.5% NEIPA. Copacabana is juicy and smooth, brewed with Simcoe, heavily dry-hopped with Sabro and Simcoe hops, and conditioned with coconut to enhance the coconut and tropical profile of the Sabro hops.
We’ve a couple of nice barrel aged beers lined up to close out the year with. The final blend of the year has just come out of bourbon & rum barrels.
Samhain, Halloween and why you drink mead at this time of year
Large bonfires were lit as people drank mead at large feasts, making Jack-o-lanterns out of turnips with faces carved out. When the Irish diaspora settled in America, they recreated these old traditions by using the most suitable fruit found in the new world: Pumpkins! .... The festival would last for three days and three nights, although the full event was a lot more involved than just 3 days of drinking mead and lighting fires. If you want to celebrate Samhain like your ancestors, a bottle or two shared with friends and family would probably a good start.

Canvas Brewery

Oh some special Heritage Rye got sown in a trial plot, it might take some years to make it into the brewery yet that doesn't diminish the excitement...

New at St Mel's!

West Kerry Brewery & Brick's Pub


10 years ago, on 23 October 2011, Kinnegar made its inauspicious debut. In the coming days we’re going to post a few stories to set the scene and then we'll celebrate with two anniversary beers. You have about 10 days to guess what they are — we’ve had 10 years to think about it!


Canning day for the 2021 Batch of World's End Chocolate and Vanilla Imperial Stout here in Kinsale 😍
More info coming soon.. Stay tuned!


BeoirFest this coming Saturday 30th Oct

This weeks session was a long time coming. It was meant to kick off our winter sessions way back in September but for various reasons we had to postpone it. But I think the wait will have been worth it...

  • A.M.O are based in Lisbon and have built a strong reputation in the Portuguese brewing scene
  • Rascals from Dublin were pioneers in the Irish brewing scene.
  • Octo are one of just a handful of brewers in Cyprus and are busy ploughing a furrow there.

Apart from being pioneers all 3 of this weeks guests place a strong emphasis on community and we will be chatting to them about the importance that plays in the beers they brew. I think it'll be fun.

Join us at 15:00 Irish/ 16:00 CET/17:00 Cyprus for what promises to be another fun hour.


Here's a sneak peak at our new tasting area on the brewery floor, where you'll get to sample some of our favourite beers during one of our tours.
