WIN! A case of Trans-Pacific New World IPA

Congratulations to our winner, JamesR! Scroll down to see his entry – he was decided to be the winner after a long, intense judging process (over dinner and beers) by our Kiwi and Aussie. It made them sing. And not in a good way. *** It’s been raining for days and we need something to cheer us up! Next week we’ll be bottling our latest beer, Trans-Pacific New World IPA, and we’re in the mood to send a case of it to someone who gives us a laugh. All you have to do is to Tweet/FB/Instagram us (we’re not fussy) with a pic of your with your EDB beer – tag it with #EightDegreesFUN – and the one that makes us laugh the most is the winner. Bear in mind, the Kiwi and Aussie will have the deciding vote and they have a rather, shall we say, sideways sense of humour… *** The winner will be sent a case of 24 x 330ml bottles of our Trans-Pacific New World IPA, hot off the bottling line next week so they will get to be one of the first people to taste it. (After me, that is. I’ve already written the tasting notes!) Just to let you know, we can only send the box of beer within the Republic of Ireland. More information on Trans-Pacific New World IPA. CLOSING DATE: TUESDAY 21 FEBRUARY AT 6PM Some favourites so far: #EightDegreesFUN I cant see any. Eight degrees left. Only the two 🙁 Posted by Alan Johnson on Sunday, February 19, 2017 [View the story “WIN! A case of beer with #EightDegreesFUN” on Storify]

We need your help again to NAME THAT BEER! We have brewed a rich chocolate stout with coffee-like aromatics and aged it in 25-year-old Bushmill whiskey barrels generously provided by the Teeling Whiskey Company. After months of aging it is ready to bottle. A sneaky taste reveals an incredible smooth sweet whiskey nose and oak character with a chocolaty and bitter roasted finish. It’s coming in at around 6.5% ABV. We’re very excited. Can you help us name this All-Irish limited release collaboration beer? Entries via Facebook, Twitter or by email to THE PRIZE The LUCKY person who provides the chosen name will receive… A case of this delicious barrel-aged stout (24 bottles of it) 6 Eight Degrees branded Cervoise-style glasses – very fancy A cool and hip Eight Degrees t-shirt Unfortunately we can only send this prize to addresses in ROI and NI. If you’re the winner and abroad, you can always pick your favourite Irish-based person to be the recipient. Just think how they’ll welcome you with open arms next time you’re in the country. Might not be any beer left, though.
