And the winner is…..

Posted on Aug 27, 2015

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 :

Oh you're home early

Oh you’re home early

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!

Beerfest tickets up for grabs!

Posted on Aug 25, 2015

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-nIrish Craft beer fest Carafa Magnum Metalman Brewing dogsess, 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.)

A Very Irish Barbecue….or is it?!

Posted on Aug 5, 2015

In a massive episode of FOMO based missing out on last year and hearing all the tales of how good it was,  we will be rocking up to The Big Grill this year with our trusty festival bar and a big pile of beer!

The Barbecue and Craft Beer extravaganza takes place from August 13th – 16th in Herbert Park, Ballsbridge, Dublin. The event is in its second year and whilst last years festival was hugely popular (and we missed it, boo!), the 2015 Big Grill is by all counts going to be bigger and better, with even more food, better drinks (ahem!) and more music and entertainment than you can shake a pointy stick at. (Note : please do not bring sticks, pointy or otherwise.)

We’ll be pouring¬† Pale Ale, Equinox and Heatsink (and maybe anything else we can find lurking around the brewery) so plenty to choose from to wash down those delightful barbecue treats. Did we mention Heatsink is a smoked chilli porter? #barbecuebeer

Tickets can be purchased here – go on, sure you’d be mad not to!
