Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair

Posted on Feb 24, 2015

This coming Friday, the 27th of February, sees the return of the Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair at the Convention Centre Dublin. 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!

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!

Metalman Pale Ale canWe’ve done it! We’ve gotten our Pale Ale pal all wrapped up in a nice new shiny aluminium suit and sent out to lots of around around the country. A lot of blood, sweat and beers (!) went into being the first Irish microbrewery to package in cans, but we got there in the end, and we most definitely celebrated the momentousness by downing a few cans at close of day… I mean, it would have been rude not to, right? Not least for the interest of quality control and all that. Ahem. So if you’re looking to get your hands on some Metalman cans this weekend, take a look at our stockists page, or follow us on twitter @metalmanbrewing to keep a handle on where the cans are available.

Magnum Carafa2Also, as a quick aside and a break from can speak, we’ve added to the four-legged brood here at Metalman HQ. Carafa’s gotten herself a loveable rogue of an adopted brother. Say hello to Magnum,  it’s his third week with his new family and his personality is coming through more every day. The pair are just like any brother and sister really, but the love/hate relationship is thankfully veering more to the love side at this stage. Until it comes to food.. then all bets are off and it’s every dog for themselves!
