Eight Degrees Brewing presents FANAH-FEST: Brewery launch + Beer & Music Festival

UPDATE! The short version: Saturday 25 November 2pm to 5pm – at the brewery for launch, tours, tastings.   5.30pm – Christmas lights on the Square in Mitchelstown. 6pm to late – Live music and beer trail around Mitchelstown. Sunday 26 November 5pm to late – beer trail around Mitchelstown.   *** We love our festivals, we do! And here’s our latest: FANAH-FEST is Eight Degrees Brewing’s Beer and Music Festival for St Fanahan’s Day, celebrating the patron saint of Mitchelstown. Warrior monk St Fahanan, who most people know best as a squat statue outside Mitchelstown garda station, came from Ulster to found a monastery near the town in the seventh century. Traditionally, St Fanahan’s Day was a pattern day, a local holiday. People gathered at his well, which is probably a ritual that goes back far further, to pre-Christian times as the well would have been a place for pagan worship. So, bearing in mind that St Fanahan’s monastery would probably have brewed its own beer, we’ve decided that it’s a good day to celebrate beer in Mitchelstown. Fanah-Fest is happening over the weekend 25-26 November. On Saturday 25 November, we’ll be officially launching our new #MauritiustoMitchelstown brewery, complete with beer tours and tastings from 2pm to 5pm. Then we’re off into Mitchelstown for a live music and beer trail, fun, games and merriment. On Sunday 26 November, there will be a music and beer trail around Mitchelstown from 5pm onwards. The event is free – if you’d like to register in advance, you can do so on EventBrite.ie or just turn up! Keep an eye on #FANAHFEST on social media (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram) for more details.  Eight Degrees draught available in: An Bodhrán, Mitchelstown The Beehive J’s Bar & Beer Garden Jackie O Briens, Walsh’s Bar Mitchelstown The Ramble Inn Mulberry Tree
