Do you like craft beer? 

Do you like good fun?

And do you like the gorgeous surroundings of County Kerry? 

Well, we've got just the thing. 

Here's your chance to slurp, sip and sample Ireland’s very best Craft Beers with over 21 craft beer producers and more than 100 craft beverages on offer in Killarney this May 26 to 28.

The weekend's events include everything from beer tasting master classes to a gala awards ceremony to competitions to a tasty food village and even some live entertainment.  

The various breweries will be putting their best new craft-mixtures up for consideration to see who can take home the trophy in 2017.

And for those who just want to sit back and take it all in with a pint, you can do so with some incredible live music; Irish Folk Band Rackhouse Pilfer, trad heroes Beoga, fresh from collaborating with Ed Sheeran on his latest album Divide, as well as The Whileaways headline Killarney Beerfest alongside The Small Hours, The Tom Cats, The Rising as well as DJs, who'll keep things going until the wee hours. 

Workshops will also be the orders of the day, where you can learn all about beer and food pairings, find out what exactly the best way to homebrew is - AND you'll get the opportunity to tuck into a whole lot of very good cheese. 

Keen to know more?
