Craft Beer Importer Fourcorners Bring American Brewing Giants Ballast Point Brewing to Ireland

Beer from San Diego-based Ballast Point Brewing will now be available in select off licences and pubs across Ireland for the first time ever from early next week, thanks to leading Irish craft beer importer and distributor Fourcorners.   
Since craft brewing took hold in the United States, San Diego breweries in particular have gained worldwide recognition for their bold, hop-centric ales, none more so than Ballast Point. Founded in 1996, Ballast Point has done more than most breweries to establish San Diego as a mecca of hop-forward beer.
Today Ballast Point is the 13th largest brewing company in the United States and has achieved global popularity for their innovative, award-winning beers. In addition to regular special releases, Fourcorners will import the following range of year-round beers:
Sculpin IPA – 7.0% ABV, A gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavours. Available in 355ml cans and six-pack carriers.

Grapefruit Sculpin – 7.0% ABV, Some say there are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavour, but the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements Sculpin IPA’s citrusy hop character. Available in 355ml cans and six-pack carriers.

Mango Even Keel – 3.8% ABV, An ideal beer for easy drinking. This hoppy, session ale gets a flavour boost from mango, which perfectly plays off the citrusy hop bouquet. With fruit, hops, and a low ABV, this beer truly is on another level. Available in 355ml cans and six-pack carriers.

Fathom IPA –  6.0% ABV, This crisp and clean brew features a touch of malt on the surface with an ocean of zesty orange and piney hops below. The result is a refreshing, easy drinking IPA with just the right amount of depth. Available in 355ml bottle, can and six-pack carriers.

As the availability of domestically-produced and imported beer increases in Ireland, the craft beer revolution is upping the ante for consistently well-made beers. Thanks to forward-thinking entrepreneurs like Paul Maher, Managing Director at Fourcorners, Irish consumers are becoming more and more conscious of what to drink.

“Beer drinkers have demanded, and are now getting high-quality beers—with their meals, in their bars and through off licences and grocery outlets,” Paul advised. “The passion for craft has long been established in Ireland, but the last few years has seen a notable public demand for more premium products. This is why we have chosen Ballast Point as our latest import.”

Ballast Point cans and bottles will be available in off licences and pubs from early next week, and the first pints will be pulled at theAlltech Craft Brews & Food Fair in the Convention Centre Dublin from the 8th – 10th March, alongside fellow Fourcorners importsBeavertown BreweryThe Five Points Brewing Company and Stone Brewing Berlin.
