Southern Cross: our new 440ml limited edition beer. It's brewed with the best Southern Hemisphere hops: Vic Secret, Motueka, Nelson Sauvin and Bruce 🍺🇳🇿🇦🇺
It's a cloudy, hazy 6.8% IPA with fresh zesty hits of citrus peel, passionfruit, mango and more tropical stone fruit. With a modest bitterness, and plenty of oats and wheat for smoothness, this beer is a genuine humdinger.
Ask for it in your local off-licence or if you're in Inchicore come visit our own off-licence here
We teamed up with the students of National College of Art and Design/Bureau+ to create the visual identity for two new limited edition beers to be released this week, just in time for Christmas....
If you would like to try the beers and see the revealing of the artworks, please join us for the beer launch and the exhibition this Saturday, November 20th at 6 PM in @luckysdublin .The event will present all student pieces, printed in an exhibition format.
We will be also running our monthly @artfullydublin art market from 1-6 PM

We’re back again with another Grisette, a lighter, Belgian style beer. This one is dry with a big body, thanks to lots of wheat and oats to fill it out. The Belgian yeast gives a lot of character here with a base aroma of peppery goodness while a moderate dry hop with Australian Astra brings melon, white wine, sweets and a touch of gooseberry to the aroma.
Naturally carbonated, this one is spritzy as they come, tying together this blend of old and new.

Introducing Revelation Brown Ale, our collab brew with Crisp Malt.
Inspired by innovative malting technology at Crisp Malt's Great Ryburgh site, we teamed up and fired up the RevTech to create a revelatory brown malt expressive of modern coffee.
Revelation Brown Ale is brewed with Crisp's finest malts and a favourite Belgian yeast strain to invoke the nutty, fruity and roast characteristics we love about modern coffee and a great brown ale..

Raw Ales were once the staple beer everyone drank, but gradually they got pushed out and now practically everyone boils the wort. Except in some traditional farmhouse brewing, and a handful of commercial brewers.

This week we'll be joined by 3 of those brewers.

  • Otterbank Brewing and Blending are based in Donegal, Ireland and specialise in techniques like blending and barrel ageing as well as experimenting with yeasts and mixed fermentation. They are also the only Irish brewery I know who produce Raw Ales.
  • Butchers Tears are from Amsterdam and have always focused on traditional brewing techniques. Lately they have been producing some on Scandinavian Farmhouse styles, including raw ales.
  • Eik & Tid are a Norwegian brewery who only produce raw ales. They try to be as authentically Norwegian as possible, getting their malt from a small Norwegian malter, foraging for ingredients in the wood and using traditional yeasts such as kviek.
  • And we also have Lars Marius Garshol coming back! Lars is the expert on traditional farmhouse brewing. He quite literally wrote the book. He's spent a decade researching the subject and in doing so brought the traditional kviek yeast to the worlds attention.

It's always a pleasure to write up tasting notes for new beers and this beauty, the latest in our #EDBOriginalGravity series, was an especial treat, as you can see from the wee dropeen left in the glass! Our #OriginalGravityBarleywine was aged in rare Irish whiskey barrels made from native Irish oak. Packed with sweet marzipan, vanilla, dried cherry and candied fruit flavours, it's a complex and very special brew.
This beer, with artwork from Coireall Carroll Kent, is due for release next week. Watch out for it in independent Irish off licences.

💪 Our brewhouse is almost 100% manual, from our team loading the malts and hand mashing them to physically getting into the mash tun and boiling kettle to empty them!
🍺 We've brewed almost every beer style, from lagers to Berliner Weisse and smoked beers to aged barley wines (coming soon...)!…
