We need your help again to


We have brewed a rich chocolate stout with coffee-like aromatics and aged it in 25-year-old Bushmill whiskey barrels generously provided by the Teeling Whiskey Company. After months of aging it is ready to bottle.

A sneaky taste reveals an incredible smooth sweet whiskey nose and oak character with a chocolaty and bitter roasted finish. It’s coming in at around 6.5% ABV.

We’re very excited.

Can you help us name this All-Irish limited release collaboration beer?
Entries via Facebook, Twitter or by email to cam@eightdegrees.ie

The LUCKY person who provides the chosen name will receive…

  • A case of this delicious barrel-aged stout (24 bottles of it)
  • 6 Eight Degrees branded Cervoise-style glasses – very fancy
  • A cool and hip Eight Degrees t-shirt

Unfortunately we can only send this prize to addresses in ROI and NI. If you’re the winner and abroad, you can always pick your favourite Irish-based person to be the recipient. Just think how they’ll welcome you with open arms next time you’re in the country. Might not be any beer left, though.

    How about simply “Bushed” with a suitable sub title? references the source of the casks, the fact that they are old and well used and the antipodean thang :) maybe to simple, but good luck with it, should be a great beer.
