A weekly podcast dedicated to promoting & pushing the Craft Beer revolution in Ireland one beer at a time, one craft beer virgin at a time. Beer in Ireland doesn't start with Black Stuff, nor should it be reduced to tastless, bland chemically loaded fizzy piss.

And all of this is the dregs of beer boredom after the Brew Dog-Schorschbrau wars which went away after those sneaky Dutch bastards from Koelschip swept in & put the race on notice for it to end.
