Irish Craft Beer Festival 2015
The Irish Craft Beer Festival 2015 is almost here. For three days, dozens of breweries and hundreds of beers will be taking over the RDS in Dublin, alongside whiskey, cider, food, music and debate. It's the perfect opportunity to explore Irish craft beer under one roof, and try beers from breweries you've never met before.

But there's also the chance to taste one-off and rare beers not usually available at all. We've decided to compile this list of the specials we know about to whet your appetite ahead of the festival. It's not complete, it may not even be accurate, but it should get your mouth watering.

Don't forget to bring your Beoir membership card for half price admission at the door!

Veteran beer writer Tim Webb has been publishing a guide to Belgian beer and pubs since 1992. This and the previous edition in 2014 were co-edited by the Europe-based American writer Joe Stange.

That means the next one will have a different feel to the current edition, because this is not simply a list of Belgian pubs and breweries, but rather a series of personal observations. This unusual approach really captures the idiosyncracies of Belgium's beer culture.
