Bring On The Sesh - Galway Now Has Its Own Beer

Galway is widely regarded as the party capital of Ireland, with the summer months basically consisting of one long festival.

Well, now the city is taking things one step further... by launching its own beer!

Galway Gold is a collaboration between local pubs and Diageo to celebrate the city's European City Of Culture tenure in 2020.

“The bars have come together on this in order to be a part of Galway 2020 in some direct way. Winning the bid to be the European Capital of Culture in 2020 was such a massive victory for Galway and publicans and bar staff wanted to be directly involved in this milestone," said Simon Heaslip of Massimo Bar Galway and Roisin Dubh.

"The beer is exclusively available on draught in 45 bars throughout the city from the east village, through the city centre, right into the Latin Quarter and in Galway’s Westend and out to Salthill. It has so far raised over €10,000 euro in funding towards Galway 2020."

We'll have to give this a try - any excuse for a trip to the West!
