    OMG – the taste descriptions are BRILLIANT!!!! So glad I got to try Howling Gale at Bloom and dying to try the Sunburnt Red…..
    Excellent – wish I lived closer to Cork!

      I can’t take any credit for the descriptions of the beer flavours – just lifted straight from the Eight Degrees and Dungarvan Brewing websites!

      It is a pity that you don’t live closer. I think it’s going to be a great night. Any excuse to head back to West Cork…

    I’ve just mentioned this to himself and he is looking like he wants to get in the car and drive to Cork… and this sunburnt red loves the sound of the lamb burger/ Sunburnt Red combo!

      Any chance that you’d make it down? It would make a lovely long weekend…with a brewery tour in Mitchelstown on the way home 😉

        I wish! Up the walls with deadlines this week, alas. Thinking of a camping trip down thataway later in the summer though, may have to get some recommendations from you!

          That sounds like fun! If you’re heading down to West Cork you just might have to call through Mitchelstown for a brewery tour…
