Clerihan in Tipperary? I've relations there, it's a tiny spot![/quote:2ki1tpid]
A kiwi owns Daybreak there and imports a lot of NZ/Aussie goods for sale at the shop and online. So obviously 8 Degrees was a good fit for him. He also has a lot of other antipodean craft beers (sourced from Clada I think) and has started extending his Irish craft range.[/quote:2ki1tpid]
Finally got a chance to pop in and talk with Dean Hand, the owner, and see the range. It's a tiny shop, but what little space he has, he's filled with some pretty good stuff. Moa, Tuatara, etc. from NZ, 8 Degrees (obviously), but the growler fill station only fits plastic litre and 2L bottles at the moment. As a bonus, Moa South Pacific is going on tap on Saturday.
Next Door in Wicklow Town doing growler fills now too. €10 for a growler, €15 for a fill. They've 3 taps which last weekend included Wicklow Wolf Arcadia, Lagunites IPA and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aged Ale. I bought the latter, huge mistake, easily the worst of the 3.
