To celebrate the launch of the final season of Game Of Thrones, Dublin based craft brewers, Rascals have created a special pizza, The Mother of Dragons, available throughout April at their Taproom HQ and pizza restaurant.
Whiplash and The Big Romance have just announced the Irish beer event of Summer. Taking place on 13th July, Fidelity sees Whiplash bring some of their favourite brewers from around the world to the Mansion House, Dublin to celebrate the imminent opening of their own brewery.
