TALENTED Northside breweries and artisan food producers are amongst the exhibitors at Ireland’s largest craft drinks and food that’s gathering taking place in the Convention Centre from March 14-16.

Showcasing over 300 craft beers, spirits and ciders from leading drinks producers, the Craft Brews & Food Fair is a three-day celebration of Ireland’s craft brews industry

Local breweries taking part include Glasnevin based Grand Cru Beers, which was established in 2008 with the simple aim to present the best brews from home and abroad.

Persistence brewing Co, founded by Kevin Byrne in 2016, with the intention to continue his ancestral connections of brewing, merchantry and artisanal produce in the city of Dublin will also be there showcasing their popular brews.

Kevin says his passion is to share exemplary quality beer in his local area of Dublin 7 and to instil the company values of wholesomeness and sustainability into his produce.

Other local craft beer makers who’ll be at the fair are Howth Junction based Hope Beer and the Hopfully Brewing Co, which is located in Clonshaugh.

Also at the event will be sushi chef extraordinaire, Jason Cheng, who owns J2 Sushi restaurant in the IFSC district and Michael Quinlan’s The Rolling Donut, which began as a small kiosk on O’Connell Street and has now expanded to five stores operating around Dublin and Kildare.

The Craft Brews & Food Fair is a featured event at this year’s St Patrick’s Festival and it promises to be great craic with plenty of entertainment each day, including live music, a games area with foosball, air hockey and pool tables and Six Nations Rugby on three of the largest screens in Dublin.

 The Distiller’s Quarter returns for the 2019 fair and will feature a range of Irish and International liquors and spirits while The Pearse Lyons Distillery will host whiskey masterclasses over the three days.
