ICBS: 2015 Beoir Beer of the Year for The Full Irish

The Irish Craft Beer Show team were busy filming at the recent 2015 Alltech Craft Beer and Food Fair. In the video below watch Beoir chairman Reuben “Tale of Ale” Gray present our Kiwi with the 2015 Beoir Beer of the Year trophy for The Full Irish IPA. There is a lot of hand shaking, followed by John “Beer Nut” Duffy interviewing Scott. If you’re interested in Irish craft beer, it’s well worth subscribing to the ICBS YouTube channel for tastings, beer festivals, debate, brewdays and brewery tours. You’ll also find our Aussie featured on Episode 10. Read more about the award here: Cork’s Eight Degrees Brewing makes Ireland’s favourite beer

Amber Ella takes bronze at the World Beer Cup

World Beer Cup win for Eight Degrees Brewing

We’re still a bit stunned. On Friday night in Denver, one of our beers, the rather lovely Amber Ella, won a bronze medal at the World Beer Cup, the brewing world’s Olympics. For a small little upstart brewery from rural Ireland to enter into one of the most prestigious beer awards in America, into one of the two of their most sought after categories and win bronze is a massive shock – on a par with the 1976 Judgement of Paris! – and we hope it will cause Irish craft beer to become a lot more recognised internationally. We are one of the very few European breweries to get onto that medal board. We’re standing alongside our heroes in the international craft beer world. With a very large grin.

You can listen to the podcast here and you’ll find Cam about 46 minutes into the show.
