The Epicenter of Ireland’s Booming Craft Beer Scene

For beer lovers near and far, Dublin can be considered a “holy” place for being the birthplace of Guinness. But though “big beer” has reigned in this area for many years, Ireland is most definitely making room for the smaller guys, craft beer companies and independent brewers.

In this “On Foodable Side Dish” episode, Colleen Hagerty takes us into the Irish Craft Beer Festival, where we meet six of the best brewers in the business.

Watch the full episode as we learn how the Irish craft beer market differs from that of the U.S., what inspires these brewers, and as they recount the early (more recent) days of the craft beer movement making its way into Ireland.
