Craft Beer For The Summer

Well, I don’t know about you but the moment the sun pops out for its annual 6 day pilgrimage to Ireland I feel the need to grab beers I like and sup them preferably in an outdoor setting…

As usual, some thing I’ve had recently I think you might like include…


Look, I know it’s fairly hard to come by at this stage but I sensibly squirrelled a case of it away when it came out and this is number three. It is SPECTACULAR…


The baby above is Solemn Black, the new Black IPA also from Galway Bay and their new head brewer. Lovely stuff…

Some old and new Brewdogs came my way as well. I think Monk Hammer was the one I was most taken by.

All of the above are new and interesting too…



Both of the above are ones that fell into my lap when looking for something suitable to drink a few years ago in San Francisco doing the radio show and both are now seemingly available here in well-priced sixpacks…

And finally…


I’ve had a lot of this recently and it’s an old familiar. Light, beautiful and perfect for the summer. I’m 100% going to check out their pop-up pub Beerkat when I’m over there in the next few weeks.

More next month.
