Autumn at The Bull and Castle

Autumn at The Bull and Castle

The Bull & Castle in Dublin is running a two-month long autumn festival for all of September and October. A range of special and seasonal beers will be available on rotation during the event including, appropriately enough, Eight Degrees Ochtoberfest Bock, one of the stars of the 2015 Irish Craft Beer Festival at the RDS. There will also be a new beer from local outfit Five Lamps, a Dark IPA of 6.9% ABV.

And there'll be a selection of infused spirits, cocktails and something called an Orange & Nutmeg Bourbon Hot Chocolate. BUT the real action is at the handpump. On the cask roster is:

  • Rascal's Wunderbar German IPA (6% ABV)
  • Rascal's Big Hop Red (5% ABV)
  • Dungarvan Seaweed Saison (6.5% ABV)

The latter of these, a collaboration brew with Norwegian craft beer pioneers Nøgne Ø, went down a storm at the RDS and has been in very short supply around the country. A cask in Dublin is a coup; €4.50 a pint makes it unmissable.

All beers are available for a limited time while stocks last. Click here to see the full festival menu and keep an eye on the Bull & Castle's Twitter and Facebook for updates on what's on when.
