Peter Curtin has enough energy for ten people! The face of The Roadside Tavern, an historic traditional Irish pub in Lisdoovarna, Co. Clare, which has been in his family for decades, is also the co-owner with his wife Birgitta Curtin of the The Burren Smokehouse, just down the road. The pair have created a fabulous gastro pub and multi award winning artisan production in this famous village, and their smoked salmon and smoked locally caught wild fish is famous all over Ireland and far beyond.
But as is the case with anyone who is already busy, running two businesses wasn’t enough for Peter to do! So he set about starting up his own microbrewery at the pub, featuring ales exclusively available here and the adjoining Burren Storehouse, where great live gigs and performances go hand in glove with good local food and real ales. The Burren Microbrewery produces a range of ales. Burren Blonde could well be named after his beautiful Swedish wife Birgitta, for she is indeed a stunning blonde! A pale ale, full of character and aromatic malty tastes. Burren Gold is a crisp refreshing continental lager style beer, full of zesty notes and depth of flavour, to knock mainstream lagers into a cocked hat! Burren Red has the colour to match it’s name. This a traditional ale with lightly spicy notes and the natural sweetness of a real ale.
Finding its niche with the regulars of The Roadside Tavern! Burren Black is a fine Irish stout to rival any of the well known brands. Dark full malty body, topped with a velvety creamy head, this is the sort of stout you dream of coming to Ireland to find! Enjoy a pint of Burren Black by the fire in The Roadside Tavern, on a cold winter night when the wind is howling round the Wild Atlantic Way, and you’ll step back to an Ireland of old! Burren Microbrewery beers are available exclusively at The Roadside Tavern and The Burren Storehouse. So you will have to go to Lisdoonvarna to taste them, and maybe meet the man who created them. But it will be worth every step of the journey! Take our word for it!
