Killarney Brewing Company to join forces with Tennessee Brew Works

Killarney Brewing Company will join forces with Tennessee Brew Works and will between them develop two new unique beers - one in Nashville and one in Killarney.

The two companies have struck up a relationship and an agreement to travel to each other’s locations to create the unique beers.

The brewmasters at the two micro-breweries want to improve international relations.

The two brew teams came together to create a low-alcohol by volume hazy summer India Pale Ale (IPA) that they are calling ‘The Foggy Dew’, after an Irish folk song. This new beer is currently on the market in Nashville after staff from Killarney visited the US plant recently.

Later this summer, head brewer with Tennessee Brew Works, Matt Simpson, will return the favour by travelling to Killarney to celebrate the local barley harvest and create another grain-to-glass craft beer that Killarney beer fans can enjoy in the Muckross Road tap-room.

Ireland’s network of over 30 Independent Craft Breweries launched their annual Indie Beer Week on Wednesday of this week. The Indie Beer Week will take place from Wednesday May 22 to Sunday 26, and feature a series of nationwide celebrations across Ireland.

 

“This year is very special as we are introducing to the public a striking symbol which will help consumers recognise a genuine independent artisan beer from a mass-produced, high volume beer produced by global giants,” Adrienne Heslin from West Kerry Brewery said at the launch. “The Independent Irish Craft Beer symbol will guarantee that a beer is made in a genuinely independent microbrewery in Ireland. As our organisation has been growing in such large numbers, we are unveiling the symbol to the public to promote independent and genuine microbrewers.”

Killarney art psychotherapist Katie O’Donoghue was delighted to spot her first children’s book on last Friday’s Late Late Toy Show!

‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ was written and illustrated by Katie, and published by Gill Books in July.

With almost every eye in Ireland on the Toy Show every year, children’s authors, illustrators and publishers compete for a much-coveted spot on the set. Aware that her book had been sent to Ryan, but not having heard anything from RTÉ, Katie was thrilled to see it in a prominent position. It was a wonderful surprise to discover ‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ had been placed in the front row of the book corner. There, it had a little chair of its own and was even embraced by a cuddly toy.

It was visible many times over the course of the evening, particularly during the book discussion, an incredibly proud moment for first-time author Katie.

“I have to admit, when I saw ‘The Little Squirrel Who Worried’ cradled in the teddy’s arms, I may have jumped up and down with excitement,” Katie told the Killarney Advertiser.

What began as a lockdown project while Katie was living in London and missing her family in Kerry, is providing comfort to children around the world.

Using a gentle story with gorgeous illustrations, Little Squirrel and his forest friends teach young people a variety of simple coping techniques.

“These skills will benefit children their entire lives and the book is even helpful for adults who are prone to worrying and overthinking,” she added.

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
