The very awesome Project Venus and Pink Boots ladies have come up with a fantastic idea for International Women’s Day – brewsters around the world will be pulling on their wellies to brew Unite Pale Ale on Saturday March 8th to celebrate the wonderful ladies of beer across the globe!
At Metalman, we’ll have salubrious visitors such as Adrienne from West Kerry Brewery/Beoir Corca Dhuibne and Sarah Roarty from N17 joining metalman_gra on the day to pull their wellies on for charity. Proceeds from the brew will go to the Waterford Women’s Centre, an organisation that promotes, encourages and supports women’s development and training, and aims to empower women to create and participate in a more inclusive society. We do have some limited places still available for any beery ladies wishing to join us on the day – just get in touch through email or twitter and let us know.
The base recipe has been agreed upon globally already – a 4% sessionable blonde with a late Cascade finish – and each brewery will put their own creative stamp on it. Should be ready for general consumption towards the start of April, so watch this space!
So it’s December again already, and what a busy year it has been. Our brewery now has four full-time staff, we have retired some old tanks and have some new ones on the way, and we still appear to be no closer to bottling because we are so busy with draught. (Sorry!)
But it’s not all doom and gloom. In fact, it’s not doomy or gloomy at all – the interest in Irish craft beer at the moment has never been greater, and it’s a very exciting time to be involved in the industry as a microbrewery in Ireland. Lots of us have plans for expansion, there are plenty of new entrants to the scene, and there is a wider variety of beer around than ever before. As a result, it’s also busier than it has ever been before. And with these shiny new tanks, we’re going to need more space, more people, and ultimately, more brewhouse capacity. No such thing as a small job, as they say! And we say in reply – bring it on
So our poor beleaguered graphic designer has been on at us for longer than we’d care to admit about our need for a new website. “Please let me at it!” he’d cry. “There’s so much we could do with it!” he would weep. What he really meant, of course, was that he was afraid that his other clients would think he was responsible for our old site
We ignored him for as long as we could, not because we didn’t think we needed to upgrade from our amateurish website, but because we didn’t have the time to think about what we would want a new site to look like, or what might be on it. However, we eventually gave in and put him out of his misery, and – tadaaaaa! this is what he’s come up with! We think it’s pretty awesome, but don’t tell him that, or he’ll get all smug and “I told you so” on us. There might be a tweak or two to come in the next few weeks, but for now, we just wanna say welcome to our new (grown-up) website And we promise to update it more than the last one, which tended to suffer from severe bouts of neglect. Or at the very least, we promise to tryRead More
