St Patrick's Day at The Head of Steam

Press release - Irish cheer in The Head Of Steam Ltd pubs for St Patrick's Day

The Head Of Steam Ltd will be importing real ales from the Irish Republic again for most of its pubs for St. Patricks Day (March 17th), as customers go crazy if they can't get a drop of the green stuff that day.

Beers will come from the new White Gypsy brewery of Templemore, Co. Tipperary;
Franciscan Well, Cork; and Messrs Maguire, Dublin. If you've not tried it, you really should fight your way to a pint of White Gypsy Emerald IPA - it is one of the most stunning beers we've tasted.

Cuilan Laughnane of White Gypsy brewery - "It's great to be able to send our fine beers to England to give real ale enthusiasts something really special. Battling with the import/export system isn't easy, but The Head Of Steam Ltd manage to get throught the paperwork". Cuilan used to be brewer at the now-closed Dwan brewery in Thurles, Co. Tipperary and he also brewed for Messrs Maguire in Dublin.

The Beers:
Messrs Maguire - Rusty Ale (4.6%) & Haus Lager (4.0%)
Franciscan Well - Friar Weisse (4.7%) & Shandon Stout (4.3%)
White Gypsy - Emerald IPA (5.0%) & Bruinette Lager (4.5%)
