Now in its 19th year, the Well’s famous Bavarian style beer tent will house the country’s most innovative brewers including YellowBelly, Hope, Trouble & West Cork. ‘ Over the last 19 years the Festival has been a fantastic showcase of the Irish Beer industry, all brewers involved attend the event so it is a great way for people to meet the makers of their favourite beers’ says Shane Long, founder of the Franciscan Well.
Over 17 Irish breweries will be attending this year, each with three rotational taps, which gives people the choice of over 50 craft beers. ‘As always, for every festival we encourage people to drink less but drink better’ says Noel Finn, manager of the Franciscan Well Brewpub.
