Beating off tough competition from nearly 300 entries, we had 18 Irish medal winners out of the 125 medal winning beers at the second Alltech Dublin Craft Beer Cup.
In fact, three of the twelve gold medals went to Irish breweries. While the cup itself went to a worthy Danish winner, we can be proud of our world class beers and the recognition they are getting around the world these days.
Alltech will be back in 2015 with another convention which promises to be bigger and better than 2014. They kept their promise from 2013 as this year was fantastic so here's looking to 2015.
Take a look at the medal winners and please congratulate the brewers as you interact with them. They deserve it.
