Tipperary microbrewery, The White Gypsy, is to make a pint in Clare at the annual Doolin Craft Beer Festival.

Irish craft beer production on the rise with the number of microbreweries operating in Ireland having increased significantly in recent years due a surge in public interest in independent craft beers. That’s according to the organisers of the 2nd annual Doolin Craft Beer Festival in County Clare from 23rd to 25th August.

15 domestically produced craft beers from some of Ireland’s best microbreweries will be amongst dozens of beers and ciders to be showcased at the festival, which is being hosted by Hotel Doolin and will also feature artisan food and live music.

Among the Irish microbreweries showcasing craft beers will be:
The Carlow Brewing Company (Carlow), 8 Degrees Brewing (Cork), The Dungarvan Brewing Company (Waterford), The White Gypsy Brewery (Tipperary), The Franciscan Well Brewery (Cork), Galway Hooker (Roscommon), Trouble Brewing (Kildare) and Stonewell Cider (Cork).
