Just in time for Summer

June 18, 2018
NI Beer

Having seen the news this evening, ABV normally only comes once a year but this year the lovely folk have announced their annual festival beer release, as they always do but with a slight twist... they are releasing it out in the wild from tomorrow onwards!


Giving us all a summer treat before the main event once again at Carlisle Memorial Church on 31 August and 01 September 2018.

'Hoop du Jour' is a session IPA, which has been a collaboration in the works for some time with their good friends 8 Degress Brewing. ABV has always had collaboration at it's core since day one and this something they have continually built on throughout each festival.

"Brewed with Irish pale ale malt, Enigma, Amarillo and Denali hops, ‘Hoop du Jour’ is the end delicious result - a sessionable IPA, silky and full-bodied with rich red fruit flavours."

As you can see from the notes above we are in for a 'juicy' treat,  might have to make an exception of nipping out for a midweek tipple! As with all their festival beers, this is a one off so don't wait too long before grabbing a bottle or three!

Hoop du jour will be heading its way to:

If you don't see your local bar/bottleshop etc on here, advise them to contact Prohibition Drinks about this before its all gone!

Have you got your tickets yet? We have! (Saturday night session as we normally do) ABV have advised that their 'Whole Shebang Weekend tickets' & Saturday evening session tickets are selling fast!

We would advise getting on this sooner rather than later, as this is what we believe to be the best Beer Festival in Ireland. Tickets available at www.abvfest.com (please note no door sales, over 18s, ID required)

Lovely news to start to week to, really has got us excited for the festival. Think a wee beer is in order!
