***NEW BEER FESTIVAL ALERT!***    great-irish-beer-festival-2016-opengraph-02

Question : What do great craft beers, tremendous music and delicious food have in common?

Answer : Loads!! But in this particular instance, they will all be present in force at the Great Irish Beer Festival this weekend!

Running from today, Thursday 22nd Sept – Saturday 24th in City Hall Cork, this brand spanking new festival boasts beers from 24 breweries, brewing demos, food pairing demos, and live music consisting of the likes of the Frank and Walters and King Kong Company (among others)! If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, draught Ginger, Summer, Blaager and delicious Autumn Sour on cask are a sample of the goodies we’ll be pouring there.

You can get your tickets here to avail of the delights, and we’ll see you Leeside!

Brewery Tours Now In Session!

Posted on Jul 8, 2016

Or is that, on the session?
Either way, we’ve gotten up off our collective arses and organised some brewery tours for the next few monMetalman Brewing Tours of the Breweryths. (Finally!)

Tours are a tenner a head, they run on Fridays at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm and will include tastings of….errrrr….some beers. We don’t know which ones. Probably pale ale and whatever seasonals we’ve got on the go at the time. (We really haven’t thought much farther ahead than the days and times, as you can see!)

Anyway, if you ever wanted to come see us and confirm what sort of madness goes on at Metalman HQ, now’s yer chance! Starting from next week, you can book tickets here
or email


Coincidentally, we’ve also got a fundraiser for Waterford Walls coming up this coming Friday – we’ll be pouring the first cask of our Summer seasonal, a new English style pale ale hopped with Endeavour and Pilot.

It’s shaping up to be a great night with music, DJs and, of course, great beer! Come long to Tullys Waterford on Friday evening from 7:3pm – a fiver on the door will get you entry and a free pint of Pale Ale, and the very same fiver will be donated to the festival.

Metalman Brewing - Ginger Beer CanJust a quick update on a few new stockists in the fold and other things that are happening at Metalman HQ.

We put our Ginger beer in cans for the first time this year and it’s proving very popular – time to get it on the brew schedule again, check our twitter or facebook timelines for a stockist nearby.

We’ve also got our Summer Seasonal in conditioning at the moment, this is a pale ale with a different hop profile to our American pale and should be ready in a couple of weeks.

We’ve also got another new brew coming up for the Waterford Harvest Festival in September – this one is going to be fun, although the brewday this week is certainly going to be…..interesting!

And last but not least we’ve got another few new stockists to tell you about this week – Cissie Youngs in Cork is now pouring Equinox for your delight and enjoyment, and the new Druids Wine Bar in Waterford has cans of Pale Ale and Equinox to keep you refreshed. Ge get ’em people!
