The Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival has more than craft beer on the programme, although it will certainly be the star of the show. From September 5th to 8th you can also sample ciders, Irish whiskeys, and pair your selections with a variety of Irish artisan food products.
“The Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival returns to RDS, Dublin from 5-8th September 2013. A celebration of Irish craft brewing, live music and fabulous Irish artisan food.
This Gathering of brewers and cider makers features over 100 craft beers and ciders, from all four corners of Ireland. 10,000 attendees are expected over the four days to meet the brewers, and to sample their wares, many of which are available only at the festival!
