Long Day Long Table Dinner at Eight Degrees on Friday 22 June

Eight Degrees Brewing, in association with Galty Valley Catering, is bringing the best of local food to the brewery to pair with our naturally adventurous beers. On Friday 22 June, at 7pm, we’ll be opening our doors and welcoming guests to our first Long Day Long Table Dinner. To celebrate the summer solstice, which falls between 20 and 22 June, we’ve put together an elegant set menu that will be presented in the atmospheric surroundings of our newly operational #MauritiustoMitchelstown  brewery. Five courses have been carefully designed by Galty Valley’s Mary, based around producers like Ballinwillan House, The Apple Farm, Hanley’s Butchers, Kildinan Farm, Gubbeen Smokehouse, Crowe’s Farm and Macroom Buffalo Farm. We will talk you through each course, paired with one of our beers, each carefully chosen to enhance the other. It promises to be a wonderful night of beer, food and company. Come join us! Tickets, which are €60 for a five course set menu paired with our beers, are available through Eventbrite. As this is a one-off, no-choice set menu, we regret that we cannot cater for any dietary issues.

Six Nations kerfuffle

Today’s missive to the crew from the Aussie (Cam generally sends anything involving sports or competitions. Just to make sure that the Kiwi doesn’t win. Not that there’s any air of competition between our Aussie and Kiwi. Oh no. What on earth would give you that impression?) Dear All, At Eight Degrees we generally try to makes things as confusing and convoluted as possible, especially when it comes to competitions. As such, it is not surprising that a week long ‘stewards inquiry’ has delayed the announcement of the winner of the Eight Degrees Six Nations competition. And to further confuse things, we may even have two winners, and no second place. The only certainty is that Scott yet again collects a wooden spoon, to add to his collection. So why the delay: We need to go back to 18th March. With Derek seemingly well in the lead, conservative picks in the final 6 nations round should have been enough to secure victory, but the allure of a 19 /1 draw for France v Wales looks to enticing, so he went for it. This is where the character and integrity of Paudy, our 6 nations administrator, has come into question, and the reason for a week long inquiry. 1) did he abuse his administrator power and only predict result for himself AFTER full knowledge of Derek’s picks 2) did he prevent Derek from amending his picks once he could see an outcome where Paudy could pip him to the post. After round 4, Derek was on 13.495 points, Paudy on 11.9825, a margin of 1.5125. By choosing a draw in the France v Wales games, this allowed Paudy to choose France with odds of 1.57 which if he chose the same as Derek in the other two matches would give him the victory by
