The Great Irish Beer Festival will be making the city of Cork extremely happy in the next few days, bringing its three day event featuring craft beer from Irish producers, live music, lectures, brewing demos & food prep demos to Cork City Hall from the 24th-26th August.

With 24 craft breweries and one distillery providing the sauce for the festival, it's sure to be a great display of the very best of Irish gargle.

There's also some cracking home brewing demos lined up, and talks on fermentation and craft beer techniques that will give you all the info you need to know to be a craft beer connoisseur. 

The best bit? The music line-up is UNREAL.

We're talking about performances from Le Galaxie, Stiff Little Fingers, Rebel Rebel - The David Bowie Experience, The Band Anna and more. Yep,it's gonna be a good weekend alright.

Hands up who's booking a last minute trip to Cork right now?!
