A brewery in Wicklow has created a 1916 Rising-inspired beer. With celebrations planned for the end of the month all over the world we are guessing the beer will go down a treat particularly here in Ireland.
The Bray-based Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company have released the latest in their IPA series, Children of the Revolution, which combines Irish malted barley with English hops.
Co founder of Wicklow Wolf Simon Lynch told TheJournal.ie today that he and the company wanted to mark the occasion in their own way.
“The bravery and vision of our countrymen and women who made possible the Ireland we live in today. It’s got ingredients from both sides of the conflict”.
The beer is priced at €3.95 and available in O’Briens and Molloy’s off-licences and in leading independent off-licences nationwide. Simon also told Thejournal.ie that the reaction has been great so far.
“People really like the beer for a start, and really like the sentiment. It’s acknowledging what the 1916 leaders did for our country”.
