Cowboy hat…….check!

Festival-friendly beer in cans……. Uhhhhhh…

No need to panic! We are now taking orders for our Festival Essentials Packs. You’ll wonder how you ever went to a festival without one! Ideal for sharing with festival mates, the configurable pack includes beer, our limited edition festival T-shirt and other goodies to add to your festival experience this summer :-)

So what’s the damage? Well our minimum sale quantity of beer from the brewery is 3 trays of 24 cans, so that’s what we have to start with. Choose from the following :


Built for 2, after all there’s no point in sharing *too* much! Contains 3 trays of beer, 2 t-shirts, 2 can koozies, a frisbee and the essentials (2 packs of baby wipes and 2 packs of earplugs!) comes to €185, or €95 each.


Grab two of your friends and 3 of everything else! (bar the frisbee, we’re running a little low!) – €195, or €65 each.


The more the merrier! 4 of everything (bar the frisbee again!) €250, or €62.50 each.

Bloom in the Park!

Posted on May 27, 2015

Bloom logo I’m sorry, what? It’s been a whole year since we were at Bloom? Well time just flies when you’re drinking making beer. Festival season is upon us once more, and with so much happening at Metalman HQ, it’s nice to get out of the brewery to pour beer at our favourite events. We might see our way to eating/drinking our fill at the same time… be rude not to!

Bord Bia’s Bloom will be taking place in the Phoenix Park Dublin over the June bank holiday weekend, from Thursday 28th May until Monday 1st June. The weather was (mostly) kind last year, but even if it’s not as kind this year, you can come visit us and enjoy a tipple or two in the lovely rain-proof Bloom Inn. (What would festival season in Ireland be without tents and marquees?)

Most of the Metalman team will be making an appearance at various stages over the whole weekend to keep your thirst at bay, and we’re even road-testing our new festival bar, expertly built earlier this week by Dave… he certainly puts the ‘craft’ into hand-crafted. (So he fits right in here at Metalman obviously! Workbench made from the crate of our canning line, anyone?)

We’ll be pouring 4 different beers (Pale ale, Equinox, Windjammer and Heatsink – all climates catered for) so there’s plenty of choice. We’ll have cans of pale ale to take away as well for that long thirsty trek back through the Phoenix Park* 😉 If you’d like to join in the fun, you can purchase tickets here. Be sure to come say hi! (And please tell Dave you think his newly built bar is awesome!)

*Please note : In no way, shape or form are we condoning drinking cans of beer while walking the long thirsty trek back from Bloom through the Phoenix Park, that would be irresponsible of us, and it’s probably illegal so you definitely shouldn’t do it etc etc etc.

The South Main Ale Trail!

Posted on May 22, 2015

South Main Ale TrailNo rest for the wicked, as they say. We are just back after a wonderful time at Ballymaloe for Litfest last weekend, and we’re off to Wexford this weekend for a  craft beer session experience as part of the Wexford Food Festival. Luckily there’s just about enough time in between to brew, package, deliver and press on with the never-ending brewhouse upgrade :-) So this weekend, The Sky and the Ground and Simon Lambert & Sons  have teamed up to launch “The South Main Ale Trail” – Wexford’s first craft beer trail on Sunday 24 May 2015.

The trail will take beer lovers to both establishments where they will get a chance to sample some of the finest Irish beer that is currently on offer by some of the biggest names in the Irish craft beer industry. They’ve kindly let us join in, and we’ll be bringing some beery treats along (imagine!) including Windjammer and dry-hopped Pale Ale on cask. You may also see @metalman_tim and @metalman_gra wandering around, sampling the foodie delights and sipping a beer…or two….or three…

The €10 ticket will afford you a sample of three craft beers and a commemorative South Main Ale Trail half pint glass. See you there 😉
