Microbrewery in Waterford city making delicious Irish craft beers for your delight and enjoymentNavigation
We decided to team up with the nice peeps at Every Can Counts (ECC) to help raise awareness of the value of recycling our beer cans. ECC is a nationwide initiative set up by Alupro to promote the recycling of drinks cans at home and at work. Approximately 500,000,000 drinks cans are used in Ireland each year (including our Pale Ale, Equinox and Heatsink) with the material they are made from endlessly recyclable. One of the reasons that we decided to go with cans in the first place is because of the ease of recycling the aluminium. And no, we don’t just mean that it’s easier than going to the bottle bank Did you know your empty beer can could be a new beer can in less than 60 days? Amazeballs, as the young folk are wont to say!
With limited resources on our lovely planet (and with craft brewing often being so resource-intensive in many other ways, like water usage) it’s really important to recycle drinks cans whenever it’s possible, rather than just chucking them in the bin. Live green people!Read More
Thanks to everyone for participating in our bit of caption fun, it was just what we needed in the middle of a stressful week at the brewery. After much deliberation, the most chortling came from this one on twitter :
Probably because it mostly sums the pair up perfectly, so thanks to Dave for that one.
An honourable mention also goes to Bigg G Fitz for this one on facebook :
The aviators are a perfect touch
So Dave, we’ve got 2 passes for you and a couple of beers when you turn up at our booth. Gary, if you get to the festival, please make yourself known to us for the rewards of your hard labour!
Thanks everyone – woof!Read More
Unbelievably it is that time of year already – the Irish Craft Beer Fest at the RDS is this weekend, woohoo!
We’ll be there with all our odds and sods (and plenty of beer) but we’d like *you* to be there as well – which is why we’re giving away a couple of free tickets! What’s the catch, you’re wondering? Well, we’re all a bit stressed out at the brewery these days with upgrades and general busy-ness, so we’re looking for a bit of light relief – simply give us a caption to go with this photo of the brewery reprobates (a.k.a. Carafa and Magnum) and the one that gets the most votes from the staff here will get 2 free tickets for a day of their choice, as well as a free beer when they present themselves to us at our festival bar, and their caption added to our website!
So get the thinking caps on and send in your captions people! Just tweet us @metalmanbrewing with the hastag #freebeertickets or add your comment to the Facebook post before 5pm on Wednesday. Multiple entries allowed, and honourable mentions may also be rewarded with free beer. And the more laughing in the world the better, so feel free to share with anyone else you think needs a bit of light relief
And remember – it’s all for a good cause. (Free beer.)
