Franciscan Well Easter Beer Fest!

Posted on Mar 30, 2015

FranWell Easter 2015 A6What do the Easter Bunny and a Craft Brewer have in common? They both enjoy…..wait for it……waaiiiit….a good hop! Boom boom! OK sorry about that. There’s clearly a reason we brew beer, and don’t perform onstage. Moving swiftly along, the annual Franciscan Well Easter Beer Fest is fast approaching, On Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of April, we’ll be propping up the manning our bar alongside lots of other Irish breweries. Doors open at 2pm each day, and Johnny will be doing his Pompeii Pizza thing to keep those stomachs lined. We wouldn’t miss it, and on the bar we’ll have  Equinox, Heat Sink and Pale Ale, so drop in and say hello. We’ll (try to) keep our attempts at jokes to ourselves. But no promises. Especially when there is beer taken :-)

More than 60 og-imgcraft breweries from around the world will be serving their beers at the event There will be plenty going on, lots to see, do, eat and drink (obviously!) and it runs right through the weekend.

There will be live music from the likes of the Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow, and the Booka Brass Band. You don’t even have to worry about missing the rugby because it’ll be shown live at the event. The Metalman team will be representing throughout the weekend, so come along and say hello! We’ll be bringing along some Pale Ale, Alternator, Can Prototype #1, and a couple of other beery surprises, (we have to hold onto a bit of mystery!), on draught. Pretty cans of Metalman Pale Ale will also be available to purchase on-site, for off-site consumption! Tickets are priced at €15 per day, and can be purchased here. See you there!

Cask Master!

Posted on Feb 11, 2015


fran wellThis coming weekend (Fri13th – Sun 15th Feb), the Franciscan Well Winter Ales and Cask festival 2015 is upon us. It’s a staple in the Metalman calendar, and is most definitely not to be missed! Once again, many Irish craft brewers will be taking part and dishing out some weird and wonderful casks. We will (obviously) be representing at the gathering. Quite frankly, it would be rude not to! We’ll be bringing our dry-hopped Pale Ale, along with a couple of casks of ‘Heat Sink’, a tasty smoked porter with a gentle chilli warmth on the finish. Much nom.

If you fancy an alternative Valentine’s day, this will be the spot! We’re fairly sure you’ll be able to safely avoid garish pink cardboard hearts, and “That’s Amoré” on repeat. If you look closely enough, you’ll most likely spot @metalman_gra, @metalman_tim, and maybe one or two other Metalman crew talking beer and sampling the delights on offer. Come along and love beer with the rest of us!
