ABVFest collaboration: Hoop du Jour

ABVFest18 collab with ABVFest and Eight Degrees BrewingWhen the good folk at ABVFest got in contact with us to talk about doing a collab brew for the 2018 festival, we didn’t hesitate. We’ve been going to this fabulous, little – in the best kind of way – festival since it started. Held in the Carlisle Memorial Church in Belfast, it’s always been a brilliant opportunity to meet and learn from other brewers, discover new beers and breweries and catch up with friends. This year’s #ABVFest18 takes place on Friday 31 August and Saturday 1 September 2018 and tickets are available at www.abvfest.com. Don’t miss it!
