Eight Degrees Brewing win SFA Emerging New Business Award
Limited edition release for St Patrick’s Day: barrel-aged Teeling collaboration stout

Scott Baigent and Cameron Wallace of Eight Degrees Brewing were delighted to accept an SFA award for Emerging New Businesses in Dublin last Thursday, 8 March.

This category in the Small Firms’ Association National Small Business Awards recognises emerging entrepreneurs whose businesses have been established less than two years and who employ up to 50 employees.

It aims to award emerging entrepreneurs that have the potential to grow their companies into successful organisations which will be innovative, create employment and have the ability to win the SFA National Small Business Award in the future.

“We were thrilled with the award,” said Wallace. “We’re only just coming up to our second birthday and it’s great to see Irish craft beer being recognised.”

Their latest limited edition brew, a rich chocolate, coffee stout called Kindred Spirit (7.0% ABV) goes on sale from 13 March at the St Patrick’s Day Irish Craft Beer Village at the IFSC in Dublin. This smooth, velvety drop is a truly Irish experience, aged in 25-year-old whiskey barrels generously provided by Teeling Whiskey Company. An Irish stout to savour.

Kindred Spirit will be available from select draught outlets.
