Peter Curtin set about starting up his own microbrewery featuring ales exclusively available at the Roadside Tavern and the adjoining Burren Storehouse, where great live gigs and performances go hand in glove with good local food and real ales.
Traditionally known for our Irish Stout and Whiskey alot has changed in the last few years. A whole host of craft Brewers and Distillers have emerged. Pale and Red Ale, Larger, Cider, Gin, Brandy and fruit flavoured spirits and wines have become common place. Many farmers and fruit growers have diversified creating apple ciders, fruit wines and potato gins. Some can even be visited, so will learn about the whole process and get a tasting at source. The taste and flavour of these artisan drinks, using local ingredients is unique, hence being awarded to the Good Food Ireland Collection.
