After the success of last year's inaugural Great Irish Beer Festival, the event will return to Cork this August between the 24th and the 26th.

Twenty-four craft brewers and one distillery will take over Cork City Hall for the weekend, bringing the best of Irish craft beer to the city. As well as beer tastings and food pairings, there will be daily lectures to teach you everything you ever wanted to know about craft beer including how to produce your own brew.

In addition to all that, there will be live music each day with Stiff Little Fingers, Le Galaxie and Rebel Rebel - The David Bowie Experience headlining the event.
